Burlington airport selects Hudson Group JV for retail concessions program

RBR Staff Writer Published 09 April 2013

US-based Burlington International Airport has selected a joint venture (JV) led by travel retailer Hudson Group for the airport's retail concessions program.

The new five-year project includes three Hudson travel essentials stores.

The two post-Security Hudson stores will carry the branding of two famous Vermont icons Lake Champlain and Mount Mansfield while the new pre-Security Hudson will include a Discover Vermont section, reported avaiationpros.com.

The stores will stock products from small and large vendors, such as the Vermont Farm Store, Ben & Jerry's and the Vermont Teddy Bear company, Hudson said.

HG Burlington JV is a joint venture between Hudson Group Retail and Branded Works, a Massachusetts-certified ACDBE that partners with Hudson in Boston Logan and Newark Liberty International Airports, among others.

Hudson Group is a wholly-owned subsidiary of international travel retailer Dufry of Basel, Switzerland.

The company operates some 700 Hudson News, Hudson Booksellers, cafes, specialty retail and duty free shops in 70 airports and transportation terminals in US and Canada, and additional newsstands in 12 more countries around the world.

Dufry operates over 1,200 stores in 43 countries and 155 airports and transportation terminals.
