East Rutherford-based Hudson Group, a travel retail company, announced recently it has been awarded a 10-year contract extension for nine of its locations at the Philadelphia International Airport.

Combined with its recent market win at PHL including 13 new locations, the concessions agreement for Terminals A, D, E, F and the B/C Connector will more than double its current footprint with 17,174 square feet of retail and food and beverage space.

Hudson Group current operates brands such as Dunkin’ Donuts, Hudson, Life is Good and Kiehl’s, and has already added several specialty stores including 5th & Sunset, Coach, Hudson News, PHL Sports and Vera Bradley. FAO Schwarz and Ink by Hudson are expected to open later this year.

“We’re excited to deepen our commitment to Philadelphia International Airport with expanded and new retail concepts that modernize the travel experience for PHL’s nearly 32 million annual passengers,” Roger Fordyce, CEO of Hudson Group, said. “This new contract win and extension agreement reflect our focus on maximizing our passenger traffic exposure in North America’s top airports, while also diversifying the concepts and products we offer to better meet the needs of travelers.”
