Duty-free retailer Heinemann Australia has expanded its space at Gold Coast Airport as well as extended its contract until 2029.
Heinemann Australia has currently operated departures and arrivals across a total of 730sqm and the expansion is part of a $500 million investment into Gold Coast Airport precinct, which includes an airport hotel and a mixed-use Airport Central complex for hosting retail, food and beverage and medical services businesses.
The shop size will expand to 1324sqm across departures and arrivals and Heinemann will bring more new brands to Gold Coast Airport.
Realising the growing demand for skincare and cosmetics of consumers, the brand will also expand its Perfumes & Cosmetics category, which for the first time will provide a full product portfolio across skincare, fragrance and cosmetics, Heinemann said.
“The extended lease term gives us a longer runway to further invest in and develop our offering for travellers to the Gold Coast,” said Johannes Sammann, Heinemann Asia Pacific COO.
“This puts us in a perfect position to capture growth opportunities created by the continued development of the Gold Coast as a premier business and leisure travel destination in Australia, and the long-awaited recovery of tourism in the Asia Pacific.”
Gold Coast Airport also doubles its terminal size comprises a larger retail space, connections to four glass aerobridges, a spacious departure lounge, and new baggage handling and border control facilities.
