Delaware North Companies Travel Hospitality Services at Fort Lauderdale - Hollywood International Earns ISO 14001 Registration

Delaware North believed to be first U.S. airport concessionaire to achieve this environmental distinction

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (October 7, 2009) -- Delaware North Companies Travel Hospitality Services at Fort Lauderdale - Hollywood International Airport (FLL) has taken airport concessionaires' environmental efforts to a new level.

Delaware North is believed to be the first airport concessionaire in the United States to achieve International Organization for Standardization (ISO) registration for its environmental management system at FLL. Delaware North received its ISO 14001 certificate of registration earlier this month.

ISO Standards for Environmental Management

ISO 14001 is an internationally recognized set of standards for environmental management and many other systems. ISO's 14001 environmental standards are designed to help organizations comply with related laws, regulations and requirements, and also to minimize how their operations affect the environment.

"This is an amazing accomplishment for FLLand it's really been a team effort," said Matt King, president of Delaware North Companies Travel Hospitality Services. "We've had strong support from the airport in this initiative and we're proud of this achievement."

Pursuit of ISO Registration

Delaware North began its pursuit of ISO registration at FLL last year when it implemented GreenPath®, the company's proprietary environmental management system. Since its implementation, GreenPath has helped Delaware North reduce electricity usage, replace inefficient light bulbs with energy-saving light bulbs, reduce water usage and ask vendors to offer products with green value. Most notably, Delaware North initiated a paper, plastic and glass recycling program in its facilities that reduced the waste sent to area landfills by 350 tons since August 2008.

"We've made a huge commitment to limiting our environmental impact at FLL and it's wonderful to see these positive results," said Brian Bowdish, general manager for Delaware North at FLL. "GreenPath has guided our efforts and we know it's the right thing to do."

Beginning of Environmental Efforts

The company began its environmental efforts in the mid-1990s in Yosemite National Park, the operation that initiated the creation of GreenPath. Recently, Delaware North has worked to implement GreenPath throughout its operations, including gaming, entertainment and sports venues and airport restaurants and retail stores throughout the world.

ISO is the world's largest developer and publisher of international standards. The non-governmental organization includes representatives from 160 countries.

Delaware North Companies is a global leader in hospitality and food service with operations at such places as Wembley Stadium in the United Kingdom, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida, Busch Stadium in St. Louis, and Yosemite National Park. The company's Travel and Hospitality Services division operates at more than two dozen airports worldwide, including Los Angeles International Airport, Detroit Metro Airport and Melbourne Airport in Australia.

Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport Welcomes New West Coast Daily Service With Virgin America

Virgin America and the Broward County Aviation Department today announced a new partnership at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) with daily non-stop flights from the West Coast beginning November 18, 2009.

Virgin America will serve FLL with two daily non-stop roundtrips from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and two daily non-stop roundtrips from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

"Virgin America’s innovative service is a great match for our region and we’re proud to welcome them," said Broward County Mayor Stacy Ritter. "The move will not only drive local job growth, but is a testament to the strong tourism economy of our region even in the current climate. Linking South Florida with non-stop air service from San Francisco and Los Angeles will stimulate tourism and is a win for travelers – when more airlines compete, consumers tend to find lower fares and better service.”

Virgin America’s new service will be the first and only non-stop service from FLL to SFO. Virgin America will operate a pair of Airbus 320’s with 149 seats. SFO serves as Virgin America’s base of operations.

Virgin’s new service to Los Angeles will compliment two other daily flights from FLL offered by Spirit and Delta airlines. (American Airlines discontinued its two daily flights to LAX in September 2008).

“We’re thrilled that Virgin America is bringing its distinctive, low-fare service to our airport,” said FLL Airport Director, Kent George, “while other airports are cutting capacity, we’re pleased to be growing and bringing travelers more choice. We believe the service will be a great fit for our passengers, and we look forward to welcoming Virgin America’s inaugural flights in November.”

"With Virgin America’s four daily flights into FLL, it just got easier for Californians to experience our Blue Wave beaches, exotic Everglades and cruises from Port Everglades. And just in time for Pro Bowl and Super Bowl 2010 in South Florida," says Nicki E. Grossman, president of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau.--`

With the addition of SFO, FLL now has service to 26 of the top 30 largest airports in the U.S.

Virgin America has captured a list of travel industry best-in-class awards since launching service in August 2007 – including most recently “Best Domestic Airline” in Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards for the second consecutive year.

“The South Florida market has always been at the top of our list – it’s a world-class destination and an important tourist travel market that until today was served by little or no non-stop competition from the West Coast,” said Virgin America President and CEO David Cush. “Our business model is focused on population centers where our unique service and stylish amenities resonate with travelers – and we think the South Florida region is a perfect match. With its central, convenient location and modern facilities, we’re pleased to partner with Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to bring our low-fare, upscale service to this growing market.”

About FLL

Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) is located in Broward County. FLL is the 22nd largest airport in the US in terms of passenger traffic (2008 data). A total of 18 scheduled passenger airlines provide more than 670 flights a day to 88 domestic and international destinations.

FLL along with Port Everglades are two of the most important and vibrant economic engines driving Broward County. The airport supports approximately 14,000 jobs directly, another estimated 25,000 related jobs off-airport, and contributes about $2.6 billion to the local economy each year.
