Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) is to open 15 new stores and restaurants, a mixture of local, national and international brands

According to PIT, the new concessions will include a vibrant mix of shopping, from fashion to cosmetics and gifts, along with additional healthy quick service dining and sit-down restaurants/bars, some with airfield views. PIT says the new concessions reflect passenger feedback from both Pittsburgh-based travellers and visitors to the region.

“More shopping and dining choices have been a top request from our travellers, and we are excited to introduce 15 new concessions that complement the construction of our new terminal and airside renovations,” said Bryan Dietz, senior vice president of air service and commercial development at PIT.

“From additional healthy dining options to more fashion and cosmetic choices, this expansion of concessions represents yet another way PIT is continuing to transform the passenger experience while accommodating the additional passengers our airport is seeing through new air service to our airport.”

New additions

Headlining the options expected to join PIT is burger chain Shake Shack, along with several local brands, such as Wexford-based coffee and tea house Café Conmigo, and national brands including Jimmy John’s, Sambazon Acai, Bad Egg, modern deli Stack +Press Delicatessen, Mi Casa Cantina and Camden Food Market.

The new dining options join Beercode Bar & Kitchen, which opened in June in the Airside Center Core near Concourse C.

In addition to the new food options, some existing concessions, including Johnston & Murphy and InMotion, are undergoing full refits and showcasing their latest store designs. InMotion will also be opening an additional larger store, with a focus on Apple products. Champion City Sports will be among several new specialty retail stores to open at PIT. Other retailers will include MAC, and Duquesne & Co, a modern gifting/accessories concept focusing on local artisans.

The majority of the new concessions will open in the Airside Terminal from which all of PIT’s arriving and departing flights operate. Some will also open in PIT’s new terminal, scheduled to open next year, including pre-security locations.

“We are excited to welcome new and expanded business partners at the airport who are excited to be a part of the transformation of their airport,” Dietz said. “We appreciate the investment they are making into the passenger experience and their support of the growing business and economic impact our airport has on this region.”
