A joint venture between Canada Goose, FAR, Gebr. Heinemann and airport operator Fraport, the store opened on 4 September. It is located in Terminal 1’s non-Schengen area in Atrium Z.
The new store is Canada Goose’s first in the airport travel retail sector.

Inside its Frankfurt Airport boutique, travellers will discover current Canada Goose collections, alongside iconic pieces.
The offering spans lightweight jackets for rain and wind, to fleece and knitwear pieces.
Accessories from waist packs and beanies to gloves and scarves will also be available.
