Flemingo International has won two 5-year contracts to operate eight outlets at Surabaya's Juanda Airport T2 and at Sepinggan International Airport, Balikpapan.
Juanda international Airport handled 5m passengers in 2012 and has been growing at 10% a year. Flemingo says it has been awarded two book stores and a convenience store at this location, with both covering 140sq m in the international and domestic departure areas under the Xpress brand name.
A convenience store of 140sq m will also be sited in the central atrium area under the Flemingo-owned brand name of Starter.
The Dubai-based operator has also won concessions at Sepinggan International Airport to operate one 170sq m Starter convenience store and two Xpress book stores. Both total 230sq m in space alongside two additional F&B outlets occupying 300sq m in total. This airport served 8m passengers last year with an annual growth of 15%.

WORKING WITH A "STRONG" JV PARTNER
Flemingo says it is working in a joint venture with "a strong local retailer" with experience of operating High Street and airport shops and it is expecting a total sales turnover of around $35m from both businesses over the full contract period.
Flemingo's Head of Convenience Kartik Bhatt said: “South East Asia, especially Indonesia is one of the fast growing emerging markets and is very integral to Flemingo’s future plans.
"We would be working closely with our Indonesian partners, to deliver an exhilarating shopping experience across all our formats in the airports. We believe our partner’s local knowledge and understanding of the Indonesian consumer and our global experience will lay a strong foundation of a long serving successful relationship for the years to come”.
The company adds that it views Indonesia as a very strategic location and it will be competing for more tenders over the next year. As reported already, Flemingo is sticking to its plan to build its total sales turnover to $2bn by 2020.
