Business interruption insuranceâA type of insurance that covers the loss of income that a busi- ness suffers because of a disaster or emergency-related closing of the business facility or the rebuilding process after a disaster or emergency. Capital improvementsâThe initial improvements made to the leased premises by the concession- aires. Generally in new space, part of the negotiations will include the detail the improvements will be made in the leased premises. Common area maintenance (CAM) feesâCommon-area maintenance fees are paid to the airport or another party as reimbursement for the maintenance of common (shared) areas, such as food courts. Comprehensive auto liability insuranceâA type of insurance that covers vehicle encounters with unpredictable elements or incidents apart from collision. Comprehensive general liability insuranceâA policy that offers broad coverage for the airport if it is faced with a third-party lawsuit alleging bodily injury or property damage. It protects against claims brought the airport as a whole, as well as claims brought against individuals who are a part of airport. Concession management structuresâThis defines the type of structure in which the airport manages and leases the concessions program. There are four basic types of concession management struc- tures: prime operator, direct lease, third party (developer or manager), and master concessionaire. Cost per enplaned passenger (CPE)âCPE is the average passenger airline payments per enplaned passenger at a given airport. A majority of U.S. airports provide CPE data, which are considered a key metric to evaluate the financial operations DeveloperâCompany that subleases all of the concession space at an airport and to concessionaires on behalf of the airport. Revenue is shared between the developer and the airport operator. Direct leasingâConcession management approach where the airport leases out concession space to multiple concessionaires. Employerâs Liability InsuranceâA type of insurance policy for employers that protects them from major financial loss if a worker experiences a job-related injury or illness that workerâs compensa- tion doesnât cover. Environmental insuranceâA form of business insurance that covers companies and protects them from uninsured environmental liabilities they may face. Hybrid modelâA concessions operating model that consists of one or more management structures: direct lease, prime concessionaire, and/or third party developer or manager.

Large hubs are airports that enplane 1% or more of annual passenger enplanements in the United States.

MAG or minimum annual guaranteeâMinimum yearly amount of rent to be paid to the airport by a concessionaire or, in some cases, a developer. Medium-hub airportâFAA defines primary hub airports by the percentage of annual passenger enplanements. Medium hubs enplane at least 0.25%, but less than 1%. Mid-term refurbishment requirementâThis represents the minimum amount of improvements to be made to the leased premises by the concessionaire to refresh the facility, which generally takes place at the midway point of a lease term. Operating costsâThe actual costs associated with operating a leased area, including but not limited to maintenance, repairs, management, utilities, taxes, and insurance. Outreach meetingâThis is an open meeting where the public is invited to hear about opportunities or the latest developments at an airport. Performance bondâA surety bond posted by a tenant, guaranteeing full performance of a lease agreement terms, with the proceeds to be used to complete the terms of the lease agreement or compensate for the airportâs loss in the event of nonperformance.

Prime concessionaireâA single firm operating approximately one-half or more of the concession space in a category of concession, such as food and beverage or retail. There are usually no more than two prime concessionaires operating in a single category. Pro formaâA financial projection based on assumptions such as projected sales and expenses.

Selected respondentâThe selected respondent is the company or individual entity that is selected for the concession opportunity described in the RFP. Small-hub airportâFAA defines primary hub airports by the percentage of annual passenger enplanements. Small hubs enplane at least 0.05% but less than 0.25%; and non-hubs enplane more than 10,000 passengers but less than 0.5% of the annual total. SolicitationâCompetitive process whereby criteria are established and proposals are requested and evaluated against the criteria, with the proposal receiving the highest score declared the selected respondent.
54 Street pricingâWhen set by the airport, a policy requiring concessionaires to price goods and services at levels no greater than the prices for similar goods and services outside the airport.
