Lagardère expands retail offering at Karratha Airport

Concession operator Lagardère Travel retail has expanded its retail offering at Karratha Airport in Western Australia with the opening of several food and beverage outlets and a new LINK travel essentials store.

The new openings occupy approximately 5,060ft² and are part of the airport's A$35m (US$25m) redevelopment plan. The LINK store features an extensive tech and accessories range, casual surf wear, apparel, beauty products and travel essentials. The LINK concept is intended to reimagine the traditional books, news and convenience store by providing passengers with a comprehensive travel essentials offering.

The combined Foodservice operation is the first of its kind in the region operated by Lagardère and comprises a café, bar and Eagle Boys Pizza outlet. Each unit features a contemporary fit-out that reflects Karratha and the Pilbara region, and that provides passengers with a comfortable place to relax and recharge before their flights.

Mitchell Cameron, general manager, Karatha Airport, said, “The City of Karratha is delighted to have Lagardère Travel Retail as our concession partner at Karratha Airport. We wanted to provide a depth of offering that is not typical in regional airports. We engaged early with Lagardère Travel Retail, working together to provide the traveling public with a seamless and wide range of products, and food and beverage options. The stores have been a pivotal part of the redevelopment of Karratha Airport and in demonstrating what can be achieved with good planning and an open partnership.”

Matthieu Mercier, CEO Pacific, Lagardère Travel Retail, said, “We are thrilled to be operating these stores at Karratha Airport, Western Australia’s second busiest airport and Australia’s busiest airport for helicopter traffic.

“The award of the master concession is enormously rewarding, and we are delighted to have now successfully opened these stores within such a progressive regional airport. Considering the remoteness of the location, the process from tender to involvement with space allocation and build was seamless.”
