Glyn Williams: “An exceptional opportunity to secure the last remaining travel essentials portfolio at Sydney Airport for the next few years”

Sydney Airport General Manager Retail Glyn Williams said the highly sought-after travel essentials space at T2 will complement improvements recently undertaken at the terminal.

“The new offering builds on the ongoing transformation at T2 and we’re looking for an innovative partner to deliver a contemporary vision on a traditional category,” said Williams.

“In particular, proponents who can capitalise on the resurgence we’re seeing in books within the travel retail environment, and the familiarity that comes from picking up a gripping read to pour over inflight. We’re hoping to see a creative range of submissions as we continue to elevate the travel essentials offering at Sydney Airport.”
