Lagardère Travel Retail

The new Relay concept has proved a great succes

Relay stores have increased revenue per passenger significantly after extensively refurbishing their stores in France and extending their offering to include new ranges of products and services over the last two years. The latest version of the concept has now been successfully rolled out in all of the countries where Lagardère Travel Retail operates.

Business is growing rapidly in new markets

In Switzerland, Lagardère Travel Retail won a major concession covering seven Duty Free stores at Geneva international airport, five of which opened in 2017. Moreover, in Saudi Arabia, the division opened Duty Free stores in three major airports: Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam. As it already operated in Foodservice at Dubai airport, this shows that Lagardère Travel Retail is consolidating its interest in the Middle East.

In Asia, the division opened four Travel Essentials stores at newly refurbished airports in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap (Cambodia). In addition, Lagardère Travel Retail won the very substantial liquor and tobacco concession at Hong Kong international airport, covering eight stores in an area of 3,400 sq.m., in partnership with China Duty Free Group.

Lastly, in Senegal, the division opened two Duty Free stores and one Travel Essentials outlet at Blaise-Diagne international airport in Dakar. These openings represent Lagardère Travel Retail's first operations in Africa.

Kennedy airports), France (Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle, Toulouse-Blagnac, Marseille-Provence, Lyon-Saint-Exupéry and Nice-Côte d'Azur airports), Germany (Berlin-Schönefeld airport and Cologne railway station), Portugal (Porto airport) and lastly the Pacific (Sydney, Melbourne and Gold Coast airports).
