Travel retailer Avolta has opened its sixth luxury beauty boutique at China’s Chongqing International Airport.


The 80 m2 standalone space dedicated to Chanel beauty lines brings Avolta’s beauty space footprint to more than 500 m2, spanning across airside and landside areas*. Ultra-modern in design and digital services, the six luxury beauty boutiques, part of the company’s 5-year contract win for six stores in September 2022, offer customers bespoke advice from specialist consultants.

One of only three standalone Chanel P&C boutiques in the China duty-paid travel retail channel, the new store features Chanel’s luxury fragrance collection Les Exclusifs de Chanel, as well as personalized consultation services.

In addition to its beauty boutiques, Avolta operates five F&B stores at Chongqing International Airport; Crystal Jade Restaurant, Habit Burger Grill, The Coffee Club (x2) and Puro Gusto, that opened on June 21 this year. This diverse portfolio is a key example of how the company delivers a curated, combined and holistic assortment of outlets and services, tailored for each landlord.

Jaswinder Singh, North Asia Managing Director at Avolta commented: “Avolta’s singular mission to make travelers happier is well underway at this key location for Asia Pacific. We are proud of the outcome of our partnership with Chongqing International Airport and our internationally prestigious brand partners, and look forward to our continued collaboration to grow our mutual business in China.”
