SSP sees sales spike as air passenger numbers rise

Travel concession operator SSP Group has reported a 3.7% growth in like-for-like sales, which it said was down to an increase in air passenger travel and retailing initiatives.

Commenting on the results, Kate Swann, chief executive of SSP Group, said: "SSP has delivered strong results in 2015, with operating profit up over 17% and good like-for-like sales growth across all regions.

"We continue to focus on delivering our strategic objectives, driving sales growth in our existing portfolio and winning new contracts which are extending our international operations, whilst remaining committed to operating an efficient business.

"The new financial year has started in line with our expectations and whilst a degree of uncertainty always exists around passenger numbers in the short term, we continue to be well placed to benefit from the structural growth opportunities in our markets."
