The Halifax Stanfield International Airport is looking to cook up more business when it comes their offerings of retail, food, and beverage and services.

 

The Halifax International Airport Authority announced yesterday it has issued Request for Proposals for new services in three areas of the terminal building – arrivals, departures and the newly constructed corridor between the main lobby and arrivals area.

 

The Request for Proposals is open to any business “wishing to establish itself at the airport,” the release said. It’s also open to businesses and current partners already at the airport.

 

“Our income from retail, food and beverage and services is critical to us as it represents nearly 50 per cent of our top revenue,” Tom Ruth, HIAA President and CEO, said in a release.

“Increasing these revenue opportunities helps us maintain our competitive aeronautical fees – money airlines pay to use our facilities.”

The Halifax airport sees upwards of 15,000 visitors a day.
