Joining Sydney Airport for the first time are Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Loewe, Prada and Saint Laurent – all of which are now open for business – with Cartier, Celine, Dior, Gentle Monster, Louis Vuitton, Moncler, Valentino and Versace to follow.
Heinemann Tax & Duty Free will also unveil a new Beauty, Fashion, Luxury Timepieces and Jewellery offer which will complement the new luxury precinct.
In addition it will introduce a range of activations in the new year that will be exclusive to passengers travelling through Sydney Airport’s T1 International terminal.
Sydney Airport’s executive general manager commercial, Mark Zaouk, said: “International passengers can also look forward to a number of Australian firsts, including Louis Vuitton’s first travel retail store in the southern hemisphere and the brand’s largest stand-alone travel retail store in the world and Gentle Monster’s first store in Australia and New Zealand.
“I’m delighted to see our revitalised vision for T1 taking shape as we firmly position Sydney Airport on the world stage. And with a further nine luxury brands to launch by mid-2023, I’m looking forward to seeing passengers enjoy the new retail experience as we welcome them back to international travel.”
