The Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA) Board of Commissioners last week approved a 10-year concession agreement with 3Sixty Duty Free and More (3Sixty) for the operation of a new duty-free retail outlet at Ontario International Airport (ONT).

The action clears the way for Miami-headquartered 3Sixty to open the new retail outlet in ONT Terminal 2 in July 2022.

“The Board of Commissioners is pleased to award this concession agreement to 3Sixty, with its extensive network of partners and diverse suppliers and the capabilities needed to provide the high-profile brands and customer experiences that Ontario travelers demand,” said Alan Wapner, OIAA Board president. “This new concession agreement is further recognition of ONT’s emergence as a global gateway, providing a world-class experience for our loyal customers.”

3Sixty operates duty free/duty paid retail outlets at major U.S. airports, including Dallas-Fort Worth International (DFW), Newark Liberty International (EWR) and Orlando International (MCO) airports.

Under terms of the concession agreement, 3Sixty is responsible for all capital investment needed to prepare its ONT retail space and pay a concession fee to the OIAA.

“3Sixty has over many years developed exceptional partnerships that have enabled our company to interpret traveler needs and align these to our partners brand’s expectations whilst developing leading retail experiences including omni channel retail,” said Alex Anson. 3Sixty’s chief operating officer. “We are excited to bring all of this to Ontario International Airport and realize the duty-free retail opportunity, enhancing the overall passenger experience.”
