AIRMALL Boston, the developer of the retail concession programme, has brought in new options for travellers in the United Airlines connector.
They include local legends to farm house originals, the colourful additions, which AIRMALL say all ‘showcase the bounty of the region’.
More than $3.7 million was invested in the construction of new retail units, which add 5,000 square feet of concessions space in Terminal B and brings 138 more jobs to the airport.
For the first time in Terminal B, American and US Airways operations are connected beyond security allowing customers to access their gates, existing concessions as well as the new shops and amenities, without going back through a security checkpoint.
Seven new shops add to the collection of 35 restaurants and bars, 20 specialty retail units, 13 news and gift stores, and services at the AIRMALL.
New concessions include Berkshire Farms Market, Legal Sea Foods, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Stephanie’s, Be Relax, Boston America and Hudson.
Michael Caro, vice president of AIRMALL Boston, explains: “We are ushering in a new era in retail at Logan airport.
“United’s new connector represents an investment in the future of the airport and our region as a top destination for leisure and business travel.
"Since 2000, our focus has been improving the retail experience in terminals B and E as part of the modernisation program.
“Today, we’re shining the spotlight on the region with exciting concepts like Berkshire Farms Market and Stephanie’s, as well as national brands, to delight passengers."
