Denver International Airport (DIA) brought a new concessions contract before Denver City Council’s Business, Workforce and Sustainability Committee today that will bring Denver’s famed Tattered Cover Book Store brand to the facility.  The Committee voted unanimously to move the agreement forward for approval by Denver City Council and Mayor Michael B. Hancock.  Under this new agreement, Tattered Cover will come to DIA as part of an exclusive license agreement with existing airport bookseller, Hudson News.  The agreement, covering nine locations, provides for construction of four Hudson News locations, four Tattered Cover locations and one combination Hudson News and Tattered Cover location.  Construction is expected to be complete in 2014.

“The Tattered Cover has been a Denver institution for over 40 years and we’re proud to bring them to DIA,” said Chief Commercial Officer John Ackerman.  “This unique concession agreement will combine a successful, existing operator with an iconic, local brand.  We’re excited to be able to offer this amenity to the traveling public.”

DIA’s concession program consists of 167,457 square feet of retail space that includes more than 140 concessions offering an exciting culinary, fashion and retail experience.  In 2011, the concessionaire program generated over $253 million in annual gross sales and over $50 million in revenue to the airport.

Denver International Airport is the 11th-busiest airport in the world and the fifth-busiest airport in the United States. With more than 50 million passengers traveling through the airport each year, DIA is one of the busiest airline hubs in the world’s largest aviation market. DIA is the primary economic engine of the state of Colorado, generating more than $22 billion for the region annually.
