Opening of Aelia points of sales, in the new S3 boarding room in Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport
After a grand opening in the presence of the French State’s most important dignitaries, the new boarding room (S3) opened its gates to travellers on June 27th.
This boarding room has a peculiar importance for Aelia. Indeed, the S3, renamed “la Galerie Parisienne”, makes up the largest commercial surface inside a French airport, with a 3200 m2 duty-free area, the only path available to the S3 boarding gates.

Altogether, Aelia runs 9 stores, including 1 Perfumes/Cosmetics store, 1 Cigar Cave, 2 Alcohol/Tobacco stores and 1 Sunny Days store, located inside the “Galerie Parisienne”, as well as 2 Virgin stores and 2 Multistores located at both ends of the boarding room.

The 600 m2 Perfumes/Cosmetics store is located opposite the filters; the Cigar Cave and 1 Alcohol/Tobacco store including the Wine Store are also located close to the latter.

A unique showcase for the shops of Aelia, the Group offers the best of France to S3 passengers , and did not hesitate to give a French luxurious aspect to the Travel Retail international standards.

For example, rare and legendary products are offered in the stores, just like the Cigar Cave’s Cohiba limited edition: there are only 100 specimens in the world, and the unique specimen that Aelia will sell costs 15,000 euros for 40 cigars …

In addition to this cave, the Group offers legendary wines in its wine store (Mouton-Rothschild 1945, etc…). Two new brands have also appeared in the P/C store: Shu Uemura and MAC.

Finally, the Sunny Days brand is back in Roissy Charles De Gaulle Airport, with a large selection of famous branded glasses (over 700 different glasses).
