– Five-year contract covers retail program and loading dock/storage operations –
PITTSBURGH – The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) has awarded Fraport USA a five-year contract to manage the retail concessions space of Terminal B at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). Fraport USA will provide retail management services (including food court and common areas) and manage the loading dock/storage facilities at Terminal B. The EWR contract is the third new concessions award within the last three years won by Fraport USA – a leading developer of airport retail concessions programs in North America.
Featuring approximately 47,000 square feet of concessions space, Newark Liberty’s Terminal B houses some 30 specialty retailers, restaurants, and a duty-free store catering to the airport’s growing domestic and international passenger traffic. Serving more than 46 million passengers in 2018, EWR achieved record traffic growth and ranked eleventh in the United States.
The Terminal B contract award follows an intensive competitive bid and review process by the PANYNJ, which owns and operates Newark’s Terminal B. Elated by receiving the Terminal B retail concessions program, Fraport USA acting CEO Brett Kelly said: “We are committed to our partnership with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Together, we share the vision of enhancing operations and delivering vibrant retail experiences for the passengers at Newark Liberty. At the same time, we are proud to expand our role within the largest airport system in the United States.”
Fraport USA is already active at the Port Authority’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), where it manages the retail concessions area of JetBlue’s Terminal 5. Furthermore, the new contract adds to Fraport USA’s operations in some of the nation’s busiest airports, including New York-JFK, Baltimore/Washington, and Nashville.
For more than a quarter of a century, Fraport USA has set the standard for airport concessions design and development in North America. Fraport USA was the first to introduce a branded retail program and the independent operator model – with street pricing for U.S. airports. By building this foundation for modern airport retail concessions throughout America, Fraport USA is moving the industry forward as an innovative, customer-focused, and quality-oriented service provider.
