Passengers are back, airport terminals and concourses are thrumming with activity and commerce. But all is not well for airport concessionaires, many of whom are now faced with repaying the money they borrowed to weather the pandemic. At the same time, labor, build-out and other costs have skyrocketed. This panel will explore solutions to those challenges and others, with the goal of finding common ground for airports and their concessionaire partners.
