That bottle of water may soon cost a little more at DFW Airport.
What we found is indeed, the market had increased their prices and it did warrant us to be able to increase our prices,” said Zenola Campbell, vice president of airport concessions.
Campbell said the airport found the market average for bottled beverages was $2.47.
Other airports, including Dallas Love Field, New York’s JFK and Miami, charge more, from $2.79 in Los Angeles to $3.39 in Chicago.
“One of the biggest comments from our customers is ‘more power,’ ” airport assistant vice president of customer experience Kevin Smith told the committee.
American Airlines also recently added media tables at some gates that include power charging outlets for customers.
The full board will consider both the bottled beverage price increase and power outlet contract at its Thursday meeting.
