"We're delighted to debut the Flik Flak brand in the Vigix vending machines at the AIRMALL® at BOS. BAA has always been at the forefront of trends in airport concessions, and we think the Vigix machines could signal the beginning of a new approach for operators that want to include vending machines in their merchandising mix," said Mike Caro, vice president of BAA Boston. "The AIRMALL® at BOS provides discerning travelers with a host of high-quality retail stores, and these new additions will only enhance that reputation. Whether they're looking for souvenir clothing from Boston or a good-looking watch, travelers can shop at Boston Tops and Swatch knowing they'll pay 'Regular Mall Prices...Guaranteed.' No mark-ups."

"Automated retail is an explosive segment of the rapidly growing self-service market. Customers enjoy the convenience of checking themselves in, checking themselves out, and purchasing electronics, watches, and other items on their own. Vigix has developed the only dispensing kiosk that takes up only two square feet of space and is uniquely suited for an airport environment with space constraints," added Steve Pytka, CEO of Vigix.

BAA USA currently manages and develops the retail concessions program for Boston Logan International Airport in terminals B and E, which represents a total of 90,000 square feet of retail concession space. The AIRMALL® at BOS boasts more than 35 restaurants and bars, nearly 20 specialty retail units, 13 news & gift stores and a host of other services.
