Tiffany & Co, Burberry, Salvatore Ferragamo, Max Mara and Emporio Armani will open at Melbourne Airport’s luxury precinct in Terminal 2 (T2) later this year.

Situated in a new high-end precinct that will be located adjacent to the next generation duty free store, the luxury brands will be joined by Watches of Switzerland, Swiss designer Bally, Michael Kors, Hugo Bossand Furla, as well as upscale business and travel lifestyle brand Tumi.

All stores are scheduled to be open between the end of July and end of November.

“The luxury precinct is really taking Melbourne Airport to the next level, with 11 of the world’s most prestigious brands set to enhance our international passenger experience,” said Andrew Gardiner, chief of retail at Melbourne Airport.

“Our domestic and international passengers have informed us of the stores they want to see, and we’re delivering on that with high end brands that we know our travellers love.”

The luxury precinct will be set within a unique architectural space for an Airport, featuring a sculptured ceiling.

“Melbourne Airport has invested more than $50 million in the first phase of the retail transformation, enhancing the traveller journey,” said Gardiner

“This is just the start of our upgrades in Terminal 2 and we look forward to transforming the space with the aim of becoming the chosen international gateway to Australia.”
