operate multiple retail concession locations within the terminal at the Colorado
Springs Airport (COS). Companies shall be granted non-exclusive rights to operate for a

About the Colorado Springs Airport
As Colorado’s small airport, the Colorado Springs Airport is big on providing a convenient,
comfortable, and friendly experience to passengers and has a strong devotion to the local
community. The Airport’s mainline carriers including American, Delta, Frontier,
Southwest, and United airlines operate from the Airport’s twelve gate terminal. The
carriers employ domestic services to destinations in the continental mid-west, east and
west servicing nine locations year-round along with several seasonal routes. The Airport
is on track to see pre-COVID, 2019 enplanements by the end of 2021. The arrival of
Southwest Airlines in early 2021 provides an opportunity for continued growth as the
Airport recovers.
Even with the disruptive impacts of COVID-19 in 2020, 6,136 aircraft were transited in
and out at Peterson Air Force Base. The Peterson-Schriever Garrison’s mission is to
enable the U.S. Space Force to partner with eight of the nine functional space deltas for
mission execution. Through USSF and United States Air Force Base Operating Support,
they also work with 80 mission partners worldwide. Although the primary mission is
Space, Peterson Air Force Base continues to provide Airport Rescue Firefighting
Emergency Services response to the Colorado Springs Airport.
When anyone makes that short drive to the Colorado Springs Airport, they notice a lot of
earth being moved and new structures going up. In keeping with their overall friendliness
and devotion to all things local, Colorado Springs Airport is clearly investing in the
community. The Airport’s business park, Peak Innovation Park, is spurring new job growth
and developing the southeast corridor of Colorado Springs housing entities such as
Aerospace, Amazon, Flywheel Capital, Marriott Hotels, and Northrop Grumman. Among
some of the developments, Aerospace is currently constructing a high-security office
space, Amazon has built over 4.3 million square feet and created over 2,500 jobs, and
Marriott Hotels are beginning the development of two hotel facilities.

The west side of our Airport houses general aviation fixed-base operators (FBOs), flight
schools, and hangars for charter and corporate airlines. Together with commercial air
service, Peterson’s military presence, and the Peak Innovation Business Park, the west
side provides a critical foundation for our economic contributions to Colorado Springs.
Some recent highlights include the Sierra Nevada Corporation constructing a 30,000
square foot hangar, COS owners completed a 20,000 square foot hangar, and Cutter
Aviation built a 31,000 square foot asphalt pad and lean-to structure for additional
storage.
Note
It is important for Offerors to note that the Airport environment presents to the operator
a set of unique challenges which do not exist in a typical shopping center setting.
Customers are primarily airline passengers traveling with carry-on luggage and in
some instances, luggage carts.
The Airport considers sustainability and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
accessibility and friendliness to be very important to the Airport experience.
The Airport expects the retail concession locations to be open on a flexible,
variable schedule based on provided airline flight schedules.
The Airport considers innovative, unique practices and the integration of creative
and innovative technology into design and operations to be important for the
customer’s experience.
Each concession employee is an ambassador for the Airport. Training is
essential and should include knowledge of the terminal areas and other services.
