Located less than 10 miles from the all-new Oklahoma City Convention Center, Will Rogers World Airport is expanding to meet the demand of its continued growth, while maintaining easy airport navigation.

Among other improvements, Will Rogers World Airport and award-winning airport concessionaire Paradies Lagardère have announced plans to ramp up the traveler experience by adding first-rate local dining and retail options throughout the airport. This project will deliver 17 new concepts by established local favorites and iconic national brands.

Opening this summer, a Tripadvisor retail store will transform the world’s largest travel website into an energetic one-stop-shop for travel essentials, while Vino Volo Craft will showcase its award-winning wine program and a new selection of inspired craft cocktails. Starbucks and Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steak Burgers are set to open in the airport this fall.

As travel resumes and the traveler demand increases, Will Rogers World Airport and participating partners will open additional retail and restaurant concepts from thriving local businesses in Oklahoma City.
