    Host Marriott's earnings bounced back last year on double-digit revenue growth at airport concessions, stemming from a 7 percent increase in the number of passengers flying at the company's airport locations. The company added two international contracts at Cairns International Airport in Australia and Montreal International Airport-Dorval in Canada.

    Host Marriott also opened its first shopping mall food court at Ontario Mills in California, with a second such outlet scheduled to open in November at Grapevine Mills in Texas. Travel plaza revenue increased only slightly on minimal road traffic growth nationally and moderately higher prices. As a result, the company increased its net income for the fiscal year ended in January, compared with a loss in the prior year.
