By Charlotte Turner |

China National Service Corporation (CNSC) has won an 8-year contract to operate three duty free stores covering 727sq m in the departures area of Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport’s Terminal 2.

 

The retailer already manages a duty free store in downtown Zhengzhou and believes the new contract will allow it to strengthen its omni-channel capabilities and ultimately improve the customer experience.

 

The airport, managed by the Henan Airport Group, is situated around 25km from the urban area of Zhengzhou and is described as an important gateway, with 27 international routes and counting.

 

‘KEY HUB IN CENTRAL CHINA’

“As China’s key transport hub in the central region, the passenger throughput of Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport increased sustainably in recent years with 29.12m in 2019, ranking 12th in China,” said CNSC.

“Zhengzhou, the capital city of Henan and the centre of Central Plains area, is one of the most important cities in China with a population of 12.6 million and Gross Regional Product amounting to around 1.2 trillion by the end of 2020.”

 

CNSC said the new contract marks a crucial milestone for its strategic deployment at airports, and adds to its impressive network of boutiques in major cities such as Chongqing, Dalian, Nanjing, Nanchang, Quanzhou and Guiyang.
