Melbourne Airport and Lotte have launched the new Lotte Duty Free store, as part of the airport’s plans to significantly expand its duty-free footprint.

The plans include a renovation to the arrivals store set to be complete at the end of 2024, while the departures store will be updated by the end of 2026.

“Melbourne is widely regarded as Australia’s fashion capital and the Lotte brand will enhance that reputation with luxury items and travel exclusives that can only be found in duty-free,” said Melbourne Airport chief of retail Jai McDermott.

There will also be a mixologist providing holidaymakers with free cocktails, makeup artists offering complimentary tutorials, and skincare consultations, McDermott added.

“We are looking forward to the store expansions and bringing world-first shopping experiences to Melbourne travellers,” said CEO and director of Lotte Duty Free Oceania Stephen Timms. 

Lotte Duty Free inked a 10-year concession to operate duty-free shops at Melbourne Airport in January.
