Food and Beverage operators ready to rebound at Perth Airport
With interstate borders stabilising and the roll out of the vaccine program across Australia well underway, domestic passenger numbers are rising at Perth Airport, which is creating a refreshed demand for our retail and food and beverage outlets.
With this surge, comes the potential for new jobs and job security in the retail and hospitality sectors for hundreds of workers. Chief Commercial Officer Kate Holsgrove says while international passenger numbers continue to flatline, we are starting to see the domestic passenger numbers climb towards pre-Covid levels.
“At one point last year, only 20 of the 73 retail and food & beverage outlets in our terminals were open. Now we are back to 44 being open, with all but one outlet trading in our domestic terminals, with capacity steadily increasing week by week.
“This is great news for jobs and job security, and great news for the Western Australian economy.
“There is only one problem – good staff are incredibly hard to come by.
“When JobKeeper ended there was still a lot of uncertainty so our retail and food & beverage partners were forced to let a lot of staff go, but now that interstate borders are reopened and passenger numbers are climbing, the opening hours of stores can become more reliable.
