The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ), Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) Airports and New Terminal One (NTO) have launched the commercial program for the new international terminal at New York City’s JFK.

Global duty-free request for proposals issued

URW Airports has issued its first prime operator request for proposals (RFP) and is seeking a global duty-free partner to achieve its vision and connect with the local maker and vendor community to feature local products. The tender is offered as a single package covering five outlets in the project’s initial phase, with additional space provided in future phases. As part of the RFP, the operator must include at least 30% airport concessions disadvantaged business enterprise (ACDBE) participation and incorporate a minimum of 5% of local business enterprise (LBE) product in their shop floor product mix, complementary to the overall merchandising plan.

New Terminal One’s commercial vision

The experience will include a curated mix of luxury brands, premium apparel, New York cuisine and experiential categories. The collection is anticipated to include several first-to-airport market brands as well as a focus on products, food and beverages sourced from local makers, purveyors and farmers.
