“We welcome the added variety and new array of food and retail concession offerings at the San Antonio International Airport,” says Aviation Director Frank Miller. “Some of these concessions and storefronts are familiar to our airport travelers, and some are new, but all are a great fit for San Antonio and will provide our guests and travelers the first-class service they deserve.”
