The first few shops will open this summer and the remainder in early 2019.

Polish travel retailer Baltona Duty Free, part of Flemingo International, has been awarded concessions for 14 retail outlets at Warsaw Chopin Airport.

Baltona plans to open four duty free shops, three fashion boutiques and seven confectionery, tobacco and newsagent (CTN) outlets across both terminals.

The first few shops will open this summer and the remainder in early 2019. The total retail area of nearly 3,000 sq m includes the main 1,200 sq m duty free shop.

The Baltona Duty Free shops will feature core categories with the largest areas dedicated to perfume & cosmetics.

CONFECTIONERY AND LIQUOR

Confectionery and liquor will also feature, plus travel and fashion accessories.

The fashion boutiques, including the newly developed non-Schengen fashion shop, will offer a selected full range of apparel and accessories.

The CTN categories will cover press and books, souvenirs and a range of Polish products.

Baltona Group CEO Piotr Kazimierski said: “Baltona has turned from being a local operator in the early 1990s to a recognised European brand present in nine European countries.

“We have recently won two duty free concessions in Wroclaw and Tallinn which are due to open soon.

“I am sure we shall surprise and delight passengers in Warsaw with a memorable experience, showcasing the beauty of the city and the surroundings in a new way and contributing to the importance and growth of Warsaw Airport.

“We have a customised approach and focus on the individual needs of local partners.”
