By Hibah Noor

North American travel retailer Hudson Group has announced the successful 10-year extension of its concessions contract with Pittsburgh International Airport.

The extension includes over 10,900 square feet in concession space and the renovation of six store concepts.

Brands include Hudson, Sarris Candies, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Ink by Hudson – Hudson Group’s latest bookstore concept featuring “a contemporary style and indie-inspired ethos”, the Dufry-owned operator said.

"Hudson Group has had the pleasure of providing Pittsburgh International Airport travelers with a unique blend of retail options since 2003,” said Joseph DiDomizio, President and CEO, Hudson Group.

“We are thrilled to support the Allegheny County Airport Authority and Fraport as they continue to transform the concessions and retail program, and cannot wait for passengers and visitors alike to enjoy our renovated store concepts.”

Said Eric Sprys, Chief Commercial Officer, Allegheny County Airport Authority: “Pittsburgh International Airport is committed to providing passengers with an enhanced travel retail, food, and beverage experience. Creating a sense of place is a major initiative as we move forward. We’re happy to build on our relationship with Hudson Group and Fraport through our shared vision to provide travelers with an unparalleled mix of local and national brands.”

Stores include Hudson, the US’s largest travel essentials and convenience brand. The assortment ranges from books, magazines, snacks and beverages, to travel and convenience necessities, local souvenirs and electronics.

A local brand based in Pennsylvania, Sarris Candies offers a variety of specialty chocolates and candies.

Ink by Hudson is a new contemporary bookstore, which aims to serve as a cultural hub to the airport community. It features a curated assortment of bestsellers, small press titles, classics, prize-winners, local favorites, and a selection of toys, stationery, fashion, artwork, travel essentials and indulgences.

Dunkin’ Donuts, the specialist coffee and baked goods store, is now located in the Landside Terminal at Pittsburgh International Airport, with a second store location scheduled to open later this year.
