Chicago Midway International Airport will soon be home to the second location of Hudson Group’s innovative new concept, Hudson Nonstop, powered by Amazon’s Just Walk Out Technology.
Hudson Nonstop will allow travelers passing through Midway to enter the store with their credit card, pick up must-have travel essentials ranging from snacks and goodies to trendy electronics and wellness items, and then leave the store, eliminating the need to wait in checkout lines or stopping to pay in person.
Developed in partnership with the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) and Vantage-led Midway Partnership, Hudson Nonstop will be the first-of-its-kind, checkout-free store at MDW as part of the airport’s historic concessions redevelopment.
Designed to revolutionize the selection of shopping and dining options for travelers across the airport’s two concourses, Midway Partnership’s concessions program brings together industry-leading brands and beloved fan-favorite local concepts – soon to be perfectly complemented by the contactless, checkout-free experience offered at Hudson Nonstop.
Midway Partnership is a joint venture comprised of some of the top companies in the aviation industry – Vantage Airport Group, Hudson, and SSP America – tasked with transforming the dining and shopping options at Midway Airport. Midway Partnership will invest $75 million to bring more than 70 dining and retail brands to Midway, create 1,400 permanent new jobs, 250 construction jobs and increase the total concessions area from approximately 40,000 square feet to more than 70,000 square feet. Our work will position Midway to be a leading international airport in the coming years, generate tens of millions of dollars for Chicago residents and the city, and improve the Midway passengers’ travel experiences annually.
