TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! CONFUSION OVER CONCESSIONS HITS KANSAS CITY NEW AIRPORT!!!
Better amenities for Kansas City travelers was the main selling point of the new airport but now details about the upcoming developments and opportunities have been scarce for aspiring vendors.
To wit . . .
IN A RECENT MEETING ABOUT NEW KCI CONCESSIONS . . . AIRPORT VENDORS WERE ANGERED BY A LACK OF DETAIL OR ANY VIABLE PLAN FOR NEW AIRPORT BIZ!!!
Here's the word from City Hall insiders about the process that is basically, just as we predicted, on hold until after the election:
"They're not giving any information. We want to know about square footage, costs, what the the space is going to look like. Nothing. Just the same sketches they've shown us for months and a lot of happy talk. Nobody has time to show up to all of these pointless meetings. If we're making progress on the new airport, we need more information about what's going to be required of vendors and the resources that will be available to them. So far there's nothing."
Unfortunately . . .
What we do know for sure is that rents at the new facility will increase and those prices will likely be handed down to travelers who will be confronting rising prices at airports overall.
