Transcript Review of Operations Marriott In-Flite Services Marriott In-Flite Services bounced back strongly in 1 970 after a difficult 1969. The group, under the direction of J.O. Jarrard, increased sales and earnings substantially over the year before, when several problems existed. Those problems diminished some in 1970, but the significant contributions to better earnings came from new operating efficiencies and a vast improvement in the safety record. While In-Flite Services benefitted from these achievements, airline customers also gained in the form of lower price revisions than would otherwise have been required. Another significant factor was the emergence of foreign business as a material proportion of total results. Marriott is taking on a new complexion as a global service to the world's airlines. Moves into new foreign territories the past two or three years began to pay tangible dividends in fiscal 1970. The year also was marked by expansion of the foreign flight kitchen system, and business increased with several international accounts. Before the jet age, airplanes accounted for less than 75 percent of travel between the United States and other countries. Today, more than 90 percent of this market is airplane oriented. In total numbers, pleasure and business travelers moving between America and foreign countries have jumped five-fold since the jet was introduced. With this kind of growth, plans to expand Marriott's airline catering capabilities around the world are intensifying. Europe—Marriott operations in world travel centers like Rome and Madrid had a very active year in fiscal 1970. In these two cities new and larger kitchens were completed, and new facilities were started in Lisbon and Palma de Majorca. The company also expanded into five new markets during the year. A major flight kitchen was opened at one of the world's larger airports, Heathrow at London. Service also was begun at Athens, where a Marriott affiliate became the first independent airline caterer to obtain the right to build an operating unit on the airport. By acquisition, the Marriott system was expanded into three promising Spanish markets—Barcelona, Gerona, and Majorca. Latin America—Growth was as intensive in Mexico and South America last year as it was in Europe. Business increased at major cities like Buenos Aires, Lima and Mexico City, reflecting a steady rise in air travel. At a large terminal point, Rio de Janeiro, a new kitchen is now being completed, and the terminal restaurant facilities have been renovated. A new flight kitchen also is under construction in Mexico City. Domestically, In-Flite Services had a better year than 1969, when prices were severely depressed and several airline stoppages cut into volume. But U.S. airlines continue to report financial difficulties, and price relief received from them in fiscal 1970 still did not match the MARRIOTT IN-FLITE SERVICES Units Ending Fiscal 1970 Increase (Decrease) in 1970 Latin U.S. Europe America U.S. In-Flite Kitchens ; , 26 Employee Food Service 3 Terminal Restaurants —■ Other Restaurants — Food Service Management — Laundry _ — Total Units . 29 Airports Served .20 10 27 12 1 "12 (D (I).
