A.I.R. takes off for Italy


Lagardère Travel Retail

Paris, February 25, 2008

The subsidiary of Aelia, Lagardère Services Group, won the tender for the duty free sales contract on board the Italian airline Eurofly.

This new contract is a real challenge for A.I.R. that will have to train an Italian logistics subcontractor and new flight personnel.

It also allows A.I.R to get a foothold in Italy with growth prospects.

Indeed, there are many charter airlines in Italy but few on-board duty free sales operators.

Eurofly operates both charters / regular low fares flights from the 2 main airports, Milan Malpensa and Rome Fiumicino, and flights from Sharm-el-Sheikh (Egypt) and New York JFK airports during the summer season. Its leading shareholder is the Italian airline Meridiana, company of the Aga Khan holding.
