Alex and Ani (320 sq. ft.) is a new specialty retail concept at the AIRMALL BOS and is located in Terminal E.  The store offers eco-friendly and stylish accessories that emit a positive energy, including bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings.  Alex and Ani accessories provide a vehicle for wearers to express their individuality in an organic, spiritual way.  The company is based in New England and also has a retail location on Newbury Street in Boston.

Travel + Leisure Travel Store (1,545 sq. ft.) brings the adventurous spirit of the popular magazine to a unique retail experience.  Located in Terminal E, this one-stop travel shop was created by Travel + Leisure magazine and Hudson Group. The store offers a wide array of products aimed at enhancing the travel experience, such as luggage and travel accessories, including rolling luggage, duffle bags, travel blankets and pillows, and messenger bags.

Cosi (1,235 sq. ft.) will offer travelers in the Southwest Airlines holdroom a place to relax and enjoy a delicious meal in a comfortable and contemporary atmosphere. Cosi was founded on the idea that good food will make that journey all the more delicious. The restaurant serves hand-tossed salads, freshly prepared sandwiches on warm bread, flatbread pizzas topped with the freshest ingredients, a variety of comforting soups, and breakfast favorites such as wraps and oatmeal.

"The addition of these new units to the AIRMALL BOS is part of our overall commitment to constantly enhance a traveler's experience," said Michael Caro, vice president of AIRMALL Boston.  "Whether it's finding a one-of-kind accessory at Alex and Ani, picking up a travel guide at Travel + Leisure or enjoying a great meal at Cosi before a flight, we're confident that travelers will be pleased with these new offerings to the concessions program."
