Flights leave Atlantic City Airport

A flight departs Monday from Atlantic City International Airport in Egg Harbor Township. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, whose facilities include John F. Kennedy International in New York City and Newark Liberty International, ‘has the best shot at bringing in more passenger flights,’ state Senate President Steve Sweeney says.

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — Dunkin’ and the Beach House Restaurant & Bar will soon be options for travelers at Atlantic City International Airport looking for a quick bite before their flight, according to the South Jersey Transportation Authority.

The agency’s Board of Commissioners voted Wednesday morning to award a 10-year contract to Hudson Group Retail to bring “travel convenience and special retail & food concessions” to the airport, the agency said in a statement.

“Hudson is extremely proud to be a part of the retail expansion at Atlantic City International Airport. This opportunity allows us to bring nationally recognized store brands, designed and inspired with the look and feel of iconic ACY themes,” said Hudson Group Retail CEO Roger Fordyce.

Hudson will bring a Dunkin’ location and a Hudson and Brookstone, a travel retailer, to the airport.

Construction of the Beach House Restaurant & Bar stems from a 2018 contract awarded by the SJTA to OHM Concession Group, a deal that will bring two

The Great American Bagel & Bakery locations to the airport at pre- and post-security locations.
