US travel magazine rates retail at Auck Airport

US travel magazine rates retail at Auckland International Airport

Global Traveler Magazine has placed Auckland International Airport as one of the top ten airport shopping destinations in the world.

Airport retail has grown to become its own unique industry, says Nick Forbes, general manager – retail at Auckland Airport.

“Auckland Airport’s retail portfolio certainly stacks up well, especially compared with other larger international airports and we are delighted to have featured in the top 10.”

Auckland Airport has over 70 stores in the international terminal with specialty stores like Traveller’s Oasis Day Spa, Elle Macpherson Intimates and Kiwi Discovery – who won the ‘retail hospitality’ category at the 2004 New Zealand Tourism Awards.

The article, which featured in the November 2004 issue of the USA-based global travel magazine, details the growing professionalism of airport retail in terms of design, selection and convenience. It says that most airports throughout the world are becoming excellent shopping destinations in their own right.

Other airports to feature in the top ten shopping destinations were Amsterdam, Dubai, Sydney, Singapore, Hong Kong, Helsinki-Yantaa Airport, Zurich, London and San Francisco.
