Lagardère Journey Retail’s ‘native energy’ within the Center East

Lagardère Travel Retail's 'local power' in the Middle East

Lagardère Journey Retail is again in development mode in 2022, with a gradual growth throughout its international community of contract features, new openings and refurbishments. The Center East & Africa has been a key focus, the place the retailer has expanded its footprint in Saudi Arabia and the UAE within the Center East, and a slew of openings throughout the African continent in Senegal, Gambia, Mauritania and Tanzania.

“We’re experiencing a really robust restoration pattern in 2022. Whereas the restoration in some elements of the world will take longer, many airports within the Center East count on passenger site visitors to recuperate to 2019 ranges by 2024, says Lagardère Journey Retail’s COO Center East & KSA Vincent Romet.

“A selected focus for us in 2023 is the Midfield Terminal in Abu Dhabi. We will likely be opening 13 factors of sale over 3,500sqm for retail and 7 F&B items throughout 1,800sqm on this spectacular new terminal. The opening of the Midfield Terminal will likely be a serious milestone for journey retail operations within the area,” he provides.
