Airport Experience Award for Best Overall Concessions ProgramORLANDO, Fla. — A dynamic concessions program at Terminal C that features everything the modern traveler could want has won the “Best Overall Concessions Program” among large airports by Airport Experience® News (AXN).

The award, which recognizes excellence in airport concessions throughout North America, was presented during the 2024 AXN Conference in Dallas.

“Our Concessions team oversaw a program that pushed the boundaries, and this recognition from AXN applauds our commitment to provide customers a one-of-a-kind experience,” said Kevin J. Thibault, CEO of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA), which operates and manages Orlando International Airport. “Terminal C passengers can experience the flavor of Central Florida in food and drinks as well as shopping at theme park stores that feature unique, direct access to the best souvenirs in Orlando.”

Terminal C has more than 24 food and beverage options, including national brands and local concepts, innovative shopping options and is home to Plaza Premium Lounge, which offers a dedicated family area, restaurant, bar and quiet space for business travelers.

Featuring local concepts in Terminal C was a key goal of the concession program, which leveraged the strong relationships GOAA has built with Central Florida’s small business community to introduce new concepts.

Concessions worked with Small Business, Commercial Properties and other GOAA departments to develop the award-winning program.
