The Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority Board last week announced it has inked a deal with Newrest RDU as a short-term solution to operate food and beverage delivery from concessionaires at Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU).
The airport authority 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 this week.
Early this year Host International informed RDU that as of June, it would no longer provide commissary services, including post-security warehousing and deliveries of food and beverage to restaurants in the terminals, prompting the temporary shift to Newrest RDU.
“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.”
