Airport Authority Board Approves New Vendor Agreements

Food and Beverage Delivery, ATM and Currency Exchange Services Awarded

The Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority Board approved agreements Friday with vendors who will operate food and beverage delivery and ATM and currency exchange services at the airport.

In late February, Host International Inc. informed RDU that as of early June, it would no longer provide commissary services, including post-security warehousing and deliveries of food and beverage to restaurants in the terminals. The Authority Board voted to contract with Newrest RDU, LLC as a short-term solution until a long-term agreement for this essential airport service can be implemented.

“Without this interim measure, airport vendors would not be able to receive food and beverage deliveries,” said Michael Landguth, president and CEO of the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority. “We are pleased that these services will continue so our guests can keep enjoying our restaurants and grab-and-go options in the terminals.”

The Authority Board also voted to transition RDU Currency and Business Services, LLC, the airport’s largest ATM and currency exchange provider, to CLS Management Services, Inc. The new vendor will operate ATMs and currency exchange in the terminals beginning May 1.
