When the new airport terminal opens in the summer of 2020, there will be more than 9,500 sq ft of retail space, split between the airside and landside of the building.
The first stage of the process to find store and concession operators for ten retail units has begun.
Bermuda Skyport Corporation Limited is inviting expressions of interest from qualified retailers to market, operate and maintain the retail concessions.
Skyport is responsible for the LF Wade International Airport operations, maintenance and commercial functions. It is also overseeing the construction of the new terminal.
There will be four specialty retail units on the ground floor landside of the terminal, that is the public areas open to all. One unit is in the check-in area, while the other three will be in the arrivals location.
On the airside of the arrivals area, also on the ground floor, there is to be a 1,220 sq ft duty-free retail unit.
The other five retail units will be airside on the first floor of the new terminal. These are for passengers who have passed through the security screening area. The units are duty free/specialty retail, and the largest is 2,193 sq ft.
Any qualified retailers that are interested in operating one or more of the retail units should submit a summary of qualifications and experience to Skyport by June 22.
Request for Proposals will be issued to qualified parties in August.
