Lagardère Travel Retail and local partners Bevco Limited have been awarded by the Tanzanian Airports Authority (TAA) an exclusive concession to operate two Duty Free stores in the brand new Terminal 3 of Julius Nyerere International Airport, Dar es Salaam.

By starting new operations in Tanzania, Lagardère Travel Retail confirms its growth ambitions on the African continent and hopes to further capitalise on the region’s resilient attractiveness and air traffic.

Lagardère Travel Retail and Bevco Limited, a Tanzanian spirits distributor, have partnered to secure exclusivity to build and operate two new Duty Free stores at Dar es Salaam’s international airport, one of the region’s most dynamic hubs. In the form of a Joint Venture, the partnership between Lagardère Travel Retail and Bevco Limited will enable strong flexibility and proximity in the management of local operations.

The stores, of a commercial surface of 206 and 160 sqm respectively, will feature all Duty Free core business categories, travel accessories, souvenirs and snacking. Lagardère Travel Retail’s differentiating approach is to combine the highest international standards with a commitment to promote and leverage local expertise and know-hows. Its world-class international concept Aelia Duty Free, which will significantly improve passenger experience and diversify the offer within the airport, will also feature a range of local brands to give a true sense of place, calling to the Tanzanian culture, architecture and cuisine.
