The deadline for the submittal of bids is 10 January 2018; the airport expects to award concessions in February next year.

The San Francisco Airport Concession Program aims to evoke the city’s colourful images for tourists and business travellers – the Golden Gate Bridge, restaurants, hotels, retail, the Museum of Modern Art, sail boats on the Bay, the Palace of Fine Arts, wine country, Stanford University, the beautiful natural surroundings and Alcatraz Island.

“SFO is often the first and last impression travellers have of San Francisco. The Airport continually seeks new concessions to maximise goods and services available to passengers and to reflect the unique offerings and flavours of the San Francisco Bay Area region.

“The Airport Commission is committed to the participation of local owners featuring local concepts in its concession opportunities. SFO’s food and beverage programme is largely local, featuring fresh ingredients and enticing restaurateurs. The retail programme provides a thoughtful mix of both local flavour and national and international brands,” stated the request for proposals.
