Sky Harbor vendors may be given option to increase pricing

Mar 7, 2015, 9:19 PM | Updated: 9:19 pm

Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport has gained recognition for its dining options in the past, with Terminal 4 housing mostly local fare.

But the restaurants many travelers love may be upping their prices in the near future, according to a recent Phoenix Business Journal report.

A Phoenix councilwoman said the feedback on the selections and service has been tremendous, but is weighing that against the feedback of vendors, who say they are barely getting by.

Restaurants at the airport are currently held to a “street pricing” structure to keep them from gouging customers with inflated prices. But one official says the trend is to move on from that model to “street-plus pricing.”

Sky Harbor adopted its pricing policy in 1996, leaving vendors to point to changes in wages, transportation costs and other factors that may affect price setting.
