Café concession welcoming bids at Solent Airport

Fareham Borough Council has announced that the tender process for a new concession at Cafe@05 at Solent Airport will be open for bids from 17 October 2022.

Located within the Control Tower at Solent Airport, Cafe@05 is a popular venue and offers a unique experience for customers wishing to get close to all things aviation. This food and drink concession offers the exclusive use of the café, together with the shared use of toilet facilities, outdoor play area and seating with unrestricted views of the runway.

This five-year licence will commence on 13 March 2023. However, the Council is open to negotiation on this point and would consider tender submissions which reduce or extend this duration.

Providers that would like to submit a bid should email  to obtain details on how to register on the South East Business Portal, which is the preferred the e-tendering platform for Fareham Borough Council where this opportunity will be published.

Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Seán Woodward, said: “We are delighted to offer this concession licence for the next five years and encourage interested providers to contact our procurement team and register with the South East Business Portal so that they can submit a bid. This is an incredibly popular location, steeped in history and in a truly unique location and I predict that this tender will be hotly contested.”
