Transcript Contract Group Results Good As Airline Traffic Climbs, Marketing Efforts Increase Contract Food Services had a good year in 1979, as profits improved 34% on a 24% increase in sales. Airline catering—largest of the Group's businesses—took the lead in profit improvement. Volume rose on a double-digit increase in passenger enplanements... much-needed price relief from airline clients ... more aggressive marketing. And erosion of U.S. In-Flite Services' margins was arrested. The Contract Group's Food Service Management division reported another profit gain. And higher profits from airline terminal restaurants more than offset a decline for highway restaurants. Air Traffic Up Further U.S. In-Flite sales increased 25% in 1979. Domestic air travel continued to gain over its record 1978 level, and the division added new business at several airports. Profit margins, which had been severely compressed for four years, were strengthened by modest price relief in 1979. But further progress in obtaining more equitable pricing formulas remains a top priority. Major new airline accounts were attracted to existing flight kitchens, and new kitchens were added in the rst class food — by Ma growing air-traffic centers of Honolulu, San Jose and, at year- end, Oklahoma City. Airline catering abroad continues to be a major growth area for the company. In 1979, International In-Flite results showed another strong gain—for the fourth straight year. The division's 23 flight kitchens in South America, Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East and Africa have benefited from favorable trends in international air travel — and from stepped-up marketing programs by the division staff. Productivity Improving Group management worked especially hard to reduce its overhead expense in 1979, laying the foundation for future productivity improvements. In-Flite is investing heavily in new computer systems to improve customer service and tighten its own controls in this complex business. Renewed efforts have been launched to conserve more energy and to counteract spiraling food costs. FSM Profits Up Again Profits from Food Service Management increased again on top of major improvement in 1978. Effective cost controls and the addition of new accounts highlighted the year. Among new clients of Business Food Service are the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and the Organization of American States, Washington, D.C. Educational institutions served now include Wheeling (W. Va.) College, Spring Hill in Alabama, and West Texas State College. Health Care Services attracted 12 select accounts including Houston's large Memorial Hospital and Children's Hospital in New Orleans. Terminal Division Grows New airline terminal restaurant and gift shop operations came under Marriott management in 1979, and division results showed a good gain. Operations were added at Cleveland Hopkins, Portland and Honolulu International Airports and at Lihue Airport on Kauai. Highway Restaurant sales increased from the addition of six units in late 1978. But profits were off for 1979 as gasoline shortages reduced traffic on toll roads. "There's a change in the air"-the new USAir-with service by Marriott
