Neu-Isenburg, Germany – Aeromar, LSG Sky Chefs’ joint venture with Russian carrier Aeroflot, is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Established in 1989 to provide catering services at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, Aeromar has evolved into a well-established and trusted partner in the Russian airline catering and inflight services market. On October 24, management and staff took time to officially celebrate their 25 years of success.
The CEOs of Aeromar’s shareholders, Vitaly Saveliev (Aeroflot) and Erdmann Rauer (LSG Sky Chefs), were guests of honor at the anniversary celebration together with members of the Advisory Board. “We are very proud of this longstanding partnership with Russia’s leading carrier in one of the world’s fastest-growing airline markets,” said Rauer. “Aeromar’s evolution is a great example of success built on mutual trust, ambition and shared goals.”
“Aeroflot is strongly focused on its customers,” added Saveliev. “We want to deliver the best products and services to every passenger travelling onboard our planes. The meals produced by Aeromar support this approach. I enjoy participating in menu presentations and choosing meals in terms of quality and menu design.”
The origins of Aeromar go back to a joint American-Russian undertaking in the late 1980s, a time when collaboration between the two nations was rare. By the early 1990s, the company was already recognized as one of the highest quality caterers in Europe – and it continues to be recognized for its quality to this day. Aeromar is present at six locations in Russia: Sheremetyevo (SVO), St. Petersburg (LED), Vladivostok (VVO), Sochi (AER), Rostov-on-Don (ROV) and Simferopol (SIM). As a whole, the company produces an average of 119,000 meals per day for national and international airline customers alike. LSG Sky Chefs is represented in Russia through joint ventures and wholly owned facilities with 12 customer service centers at 11 airports.
