Thanks to its broad network throughout US airports, HMSHost is entering a market with significant synergies with its current core business.

“Thinking big has constantly pushed HMSHost to innovate year after year,” said Steve Johnson, North America CEO, HMSHost. “This is why we are so proud to be part of the American Airlines’ experience.

“We are glad American Airlines gave us this opportunity to enter a new business area and offer its customers a unique preflight taste experience.”

HMSHost has already begun managing the F&B offering at select American Airlines lounges and plans to complete the transition at all lounges in the next few months.
