Travel Retail Domodedevo, a joint venture between Gebr. Heinemann and its local partner Greenway, has won a seven-year contract to become exclusive duty free operator in the new international terminal at Moscow Domodedevo Airport. Opening of the approximately 7,000sqm area is scheduled for June 2018.
“Over the years, TRD has established itself as a reliable and competent duty free operator,” explains Oleg Zhytomyrsky, Director Sales Russia/CIS at Gebr. Heinemann. “We will continue to expand this competence in the coming years and present a comprehensive and varied range of duty free products to passengers at Domodedovo Airport. We are delighted at winning this tender, which is a great confirmation of our entrepreneurial commitment in Russia.”
The future duty free area will comprise a large main area of approximately 4,000sqm in the form of a walkthrough shop directly behind the security checkpoint and two large areas for various fashion and accessories boutiques.
TRD is already active as a duty free operator at Domodedovo Airport with two duty free shops and three duty paid shops. When the new terminal opens, all international flights will operate from this, while domestic flights will be concentrated in the existing terminal. TRD will in future be responsible for all duty free trading at Domodedovo Airport. The number of local employees will be gradually and significantly increased.
