Fraport USA is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fraport AG Frankfurt Airport Services Worldwide, the global airport company based in Frankfurt, Germany. Fraport acquired 100% of U.S-based AMU Holdings Inc – owners of Airmall USA Holdings, on Aug. 1, 2014.
The company says that the name change reflects the start of a new chapter for the developer of award-winning airport retail programs in North America
“The future of airport development is here,” said Ben Zandi, president and CEO, Fraport USA.
“As the North American subsidiary of one of the largest airport operators worldwide, Fraport USA is primed to take the passenger experience to the next level with best-in-class airport development, superior services and operational excellence. Our new name reflects the full scope and depth of our services and expertise as a global airport company.”
Globally, Fraport serves more than 320 million passengers in 29 airports and 10 countries.
Airmall USA pioneered modern airport retail programs that enhanced the travel experience by introducing quality shops and restaurants, a street pricing model and competition in U.S. airports.
As Fraport USA, the company builds on its legacy of creating better airports and better communities through innovative technology, strategic partnerships and customized programs that ensure travelers receive exceptional service from curb to gate.
Fraport USA currently manages the retail programs at Baltimore/ Washington International Thur-good Marshall Airport, Boston Logan International Airport (terminals B and E), Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and Pittsburgh International Airport.
In 2016, Fraport was selected by JetBlue for the future development of the retail program in T5, JetBlue’s home terminal at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.
