Retail operator Lagardère Travel Retail has completed the installation of five new outlets at Gold Coast Airport in Australia. The company was awarded the contracts following a competitive tender process in late 2016.
The additions include The Gold Coast Store in domestic departures, as well as Out of Australia, Relay and Aelia Duty Free stores in international departures. To remain current, the Aelia Duty Free store has been completely renovated and now stocks key brands for the Pacific region such as Bundaberg Rum, Sunglass Hut and tech2go.
These new developments are all in conjunction with Gold Coast Airport’s preparation for the 2018 Commonwealth Games being held on the Gold Coast.
Matthieu Mercier, CEO of Pacific region, Lagardère Travel Retail, said, “We’re delighted to deliver new and innovative concepts to the Gold Coast Airport, offering the passengers a complete travel essentials, destination and duty-free offer, with a strong mix of local flavor and true sense of place. We have enjoyed a long and successful partnership with the airport since 2002, so are excited to be part of this redevelopment phase.”
Deborah Price, general manager – commercial, Gold Coast Airport, said, “Gold Coast Airport is delighted with the new Lagardère Travel Retail concepts that are innovative and have captured the essence of a sense of place.”
