Changi Airport duty-free concessions expanded
Key Changi Airport duty-free liquor and beauty concessions held by DFS and Shilla Travel have been extended for two years.
The extensions will start from 2020 after the expiration of their current six-year concessions.
Over the past four years, the airport’s two core-category concessions have involved pioneering retail concepts including unique duplex stores and the world’s first airport integrated duty-free zone.
Executive VP of commercial at Changi Lim Peck Hoon said: “We are very pleased to continue our partnership with DFS and The Shilla Duty Free for another two years. Their passion for the travel retail industry continue to deliver new ideas and novel retail concepts at Changi Airport, and were instrumental in driving sales growth over the past four years.”
A release from the company stated that Changi plans to leverage new technologies and innovations for a seamless retail experience when passengers shop from online to offline, from before they fly to the time they board.
The extended tenancy terms for the liquor concession will commence from April 9, 2020 until April 8, 2022, covering 18 stores and spanning more than 8000sqm of retail space in Terminals 1, 2, 3 and 4.
For the beauty concession, the extended tenancy terms will begin from October 1, 2020 to September 30, 2022, covering 22 outlets and spanning more than 7400sqm of retail space across Changi Airport’s four terminals.
