Novo wins new business with Tourvest

By Administrator |

Novo Ivc has expanded its business further into Africa after winning a contract to provide Tourvest Duty Free (TDF) with its computerised retail management solutions with TDF's new airline partner, Air Mauritius.

Tourvest Duty Free, the multi-award winning Johannesburg-based inflight concessionaire now holds the contract to provide onboard products and services and the Novo relationship with TDF is a long one, having commenced back in 1999 following what it describes as 'a rigorous tender process for Onboard Retail Technology for Kenya Airways'.

At that time Tourvest Duty Free's Ceo was Ian Hay who referred to Novo Ivc as the ‘best equipped in terms of technology, attitude and expertise to partner Tourvest moving forward,’ and this positive relationship has continued under the current Tourvest Duty Free management which is now led by Ceo Selwyn Grimsley.

Similar sentiments were also echoed by the Tourvest Duty Free Crew Liaison Manager for Virgin Atlantic David O' Callaghan when he said: ‘The on time implementation of the Falcon units across the Virgin Atlantic fleet was a huge success, due in no small part to the expertise, professionalism, reliability and flexibility of all at Novo’.

Air Mauritius contributes actively to the economic development of Mauritius and is currently on track to reach its government set target of carrying 2m tourists by 2015.

With further system roll outs planned for the New Year. the Novo Tourvest partnership continues to strengthen, as Tim Clifford, Novo's Divisional Director said: ‘We are delighted to continue working within the strong partnership based on shared industry expertise that exists between Novo Ivc with Tourvest Duty Free.’

Air Mauritius, based in Port Louis – the island's capital – covers 30 regional and international routes across Europe and Africa.
