JFKIAT has invited ‘innovative’ travel retailers to bid for the duty free concession at JFK T4 in New York

New York’s JFK International Air Terminal (JFKIAT) has launched the first in a two-stage duty free tender process for Terminal 4 at JFK Airport.

As part of its vision to transform and expand the terminal, its commercial offerings are being reviewed.

JFKIAT is inviting the “most innovative duty free retailers in the world” to respond for the right to develop and operate 33,000 sq ft of concession space.

Stage one, the Request for Qualifications Stage, is open to all respondents and will close on 14 April.

The second Proposal stage will be open only to a select group of preferred respondents. The operator is targeting Q4 2024 as the contract commencement date.

Retailers are being asked to demonstrate that they have the “vision, innovation and capability” to deliver an “evolutionary” duty free experience. 

“JFKIAT is excited to further enhance its commercial offerings and looks forward to offering a best-in-class retail experience for its customers,” it said in a statement.  

For more information, interested parties are invited to email [email protected].

Back in 2020, JFKIAT announced a US$3.8bn Terminal 4 redevelopment project after Delta consolidated operations there.
