Bradley International Airport to Introduce New Concession Program

 

Local retail businesses invited to apply

The Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA) is pleased to announce the launch of a new concession program at Bradley International Airport aimed at highlighting local specialty retail vendors and small businesses.

“We’re very thrilled to be launching this program,” said Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E, Executive Director of the Connecticut Airport Authority. “As we continue to increase the sense of place at Bradley, we’re excited to open the doors to local vendors and small businesses and to introduce our passengers to everything our region has to offer.”

To roll out the program, the area commonly known as the ‘food court’ in Terminal A of the airport is currently being redesigned to incorporate a row of dedicated kiosk units aimed at creating a walk-through market place, which will showcase the region’s diverse local and small businesses.

Through the program, vendors and small businesses will have the opportunity to have a presence in the terminal by operating their businesses from one of the dedicated kiosks on a fixed-term, rotating basis.

With a pre-set venue and short-term leases, the program has been designed to make the Bradley International Airport passenger market more easily accessible for local businesses in the region.

It is anticipated that in 2019 there will be four kiosk units available for occupancy, with up to three additional units anticipated for availability in 2020. The first kiosks will be introduced in the fall of 2019.

Small businesses who sell specialty retail items or fully-prepared, pre-packaged food are invited to apply.

An informational session will be held on Wednesday, July 24, 2019. For further information and application details, please click on the following links:
