INTERNATIONAL. Welcome to The Moodie Davitt eZine, Travel Retail’s LookBook. In this edition we assess the €3.6 billion, five-year duty free contract opportunity at Norway’s airports, where Avinor launched a tender for the business this month.

One of the biggest airport retail concessions in the world, it has excited interest from players large and small, local and international.

Avinor senior executives talk about the business case for a contract that stands “as a lighthouse in the world of duty free”, about consumer demand, about the financial and cultural role of the business, about their ambitions for Sense of Place in design and about their expectations of traffic recovery.

In advance of the highly anticipated opening of Bahrain International Airport’s new terminal this week, we take a glimpse at Bahrain Duty Free’s branding and retail offer.

We examine the road to recovery in North American airport retail and dining through the eyes of four CEOs of leading companies in the regional market. And we take a look at how tourism will rebound in Asia Pacific with the aid of new forecasts.

You’ll also find our regular columns in partnership with CircleSquare, ARI and Tito’s Handmade Vodka in this, the first Moodie Davitt eZine of 2021.

Please enjoy this edition with our compliments.
