The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) has contracted retail developer Westfield Airports to renovate 31,000ft² of concession space for Terminal B at Newark Liberty International Airport in the US state of New Jersey.

The board authorized 10 concessions agreements that will provide new restaurants, specialty retail businesses, a currency exchange and other service options for Terminal B. Of the proposed leases, 17 will be located post-security and 11 pre-security. In addition, a total of 19 new ATMs will be located throughout the terminal. The renovations are expected to be completed by the autumn of 2019.

John Degnan, PANYNJ board chairman, said, “These critical investments in our airports are necessary to accommodate our customers, improve airport services and bring jobs to the area.”

Pat Foye, executive director, PANYNJ, said, “The agreements authorized today will continue the effort to modernize Port Authority airports and provide the flying public a wider range of services and amenities.”

As part of an extension of their original concessions agreement with the Port Authority, Westfield invested US$3.5m to revamp the Terminal A and B food courts, further enhancing the passenger experience at Newark. Since partnering with Westfield in 2007, a total of 75 concessions locations have been redeveloped in Terminal A and B.
