Alpha Airports looking to win in-flight catering deals in India

The head of Alpha Airports, the airline caterer and retailer, called yesterday for a fundamental overhaul of aviation security checks to put some of the enjoyment back into air travel.
Peter Williams, the chairman and chief executive, said the new security arrangements, put in place after last month's alleged bomb plot in the UK, had turned what was already an unpleasant experience into "a pretty terrible" one.
The group, which operates in UK airports under the Alpha tax and duty free stores, World News and Glorious Britain brands, said it had signed a 10-year extension to its contract at Manchester airport, worth £800m.
Mr Williams added that it was looking to win in-flight catering deals in Saudi Arabia and India and improve the profitability of its Australian operation.
