Hudson wins contract extension for Toronto airport

Hudson, the well-known operator of retail stores in airports and other tourist destinations, has won an eight-year Duty Free retail contract at Toronto Pearson International Airport along with another company, it announced Monday.

East Rutherford-based Hudson, which has more than 1,000 stores across North America, will partner in Toronto with parent company Dufry, a global leader in travel retail. The two have had a longstanding, 35-year partnership with the airport authority in Toronto, including 50,000 square feet of retail space in the airport. They plan to expand their offerings under the new pact, including new brands and concepts.

“We are excited to deepen our commitment to Toronto Pearson International Airport with expanded and new retail concepts that modernize the travel experience for passengers,” Hudson CEO Roger Fordyce said in a prepared statement.

The contract runs from June 2022 through June 2030, Hudson said.
