The role of concessions in an airport’s financial operational portfolio has changed in recent years.  Once an afterthought serving “captive customers,” concessions have become a vital component of the overall passenger experience.  Further, concessions are now widely recognized as an important contributor to an airport’s revenue base.  Successful concessions are a critical need for an airport.

Achieving successful concessions for its clients is the focus of Unison’s Retail Concessions Planning and Management Practice.  We define success through three goals: a successful program enhances passenger satisfaction, supports concessionaire financial performance and increases airport revenues.  Unison Consulting takes an entrepreneurial approach to the challenge of meeting these goals.  We build from a solid economic and financial base, but temper the quantitative aspects of a program with our knowledge of the qualitative factors that distinguish exceptional airports.  This approach motivates the many services listed below covering all phases of a concessions program: research and programming, and implementation and management. Throughout the planning, development and subsequent operation of an airport retail program, the Unison retail team aims to assist its clients create and manage concessions high-quality, cost-effective programs to meet the needs of all stakeholders – passengers, concessionaires, airport and community.
