If you’re lucky enough to have flitted through Auckland Airport en route to an international flight recently, you may have noticed some changes underway. These changes are part of the airport’s 30-year vision for it to be an airport of the future. We talk to its general manager of marketing and communications, Jason Delamore, about how this will affect retailers.
Auckland International Airport’s revamp continues with high-end fashion retailer Ruby Boutique setting up shop. This follows on from recent changes in duty free retailers, with DFS and JR Duty Free out and Aelia Duty Free and The Loop Duty Free in.
The executive chairman of property, design and research specialist agency RCG, Paul Keane, explores whether airport retailers can survive in the current climate.
There’s been a changeover at Auckland Airport’s duty free strip. Long-standing duty free retailers DFS and JR Duty Free are jetting off to parts unknown, to be replaced by new arrivals Aelia Duty Free and The Loop Duty Free from the end of this month.
