FMAA requires nondiscrimination assurances, as prescribed by Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”), from each tenant, contractor, and concessionaire providing an activity, service, or facility at the airport. Assurances must be included in any related lease, contract, or franchise agreement between the Authority and each tenant, contractor, and concessionaire, as well as in any similar agreements with their own sub-tenants and sub-contractors.
