Avia Solutions Group, a WSE listed global provider of one-stop-shop aviation business solutions, is further strengthening its presence in the global travel industry by launching a new Duty Free operator Globus Distribution. The new company will be operating duty-free retail shops across Europe and Asia.
The new Duty Free operator will sell various products exempted from certain taxes and duties, thus offering lower prices for an increasing number of price-sensitive consumers. The company plans to be engaged in the promotion and sales of worldwide known perfumery, beverage, cosmetics and other branded goods, including those produced by Lancome, Christian Dior, L'Oreal, Montblanc, Ray Ban, Jack Daniel's, Glenfiddich, Hennessey and Johnnie Walker.
Globus Distribution will launch its first duty-free shops as soon as in the end of 2014 – beginning of 2015. All in all, in five years’ time the company is planning to operate almost 40 duty-free stores located in various air, road and rail border crossings across Europe and Asia.
“As the demand for travel is constantly rising around the world, we certainly see a big potential in the Duty Free and retail segment. Based on our extensive experience in various airport development projects worldwide, we fully understand the exact expectations from customers as concerns the products and services offered by Duty Free operators in distinct regions across the globe. For that reason, we have decided that it was high time for us to use this expertise in practice and establish our own Duty Free company,” comments Tomas Vaisvila, the Head of aviation infrastructure management and development at Avia Solutions Group. “Moreover, Globus Distribution will not only offer travellers high class products for reasonable prices, but might also support us in our airport development projects.”
