By Luke Barras-hill |

Cologne Bonn Airport is due to welcome the new R+F shop in April.

Swedish travel retail specialist R&F will open a new store concept at Cologne Bonn Airport this Spring.

The shop, which will be located at Terminal 1, has a preliminary opening date of 15 April.

It is the first time that R&F, trading under the name R&F GmbH, will open its own airport store.

R+F Travel Retail says the shope ‘will offer a new and different customer experience than what can currently be found at the airport’ and will stock premium and sought-after brands.

Focus will be placed on new ways of merchandising and affordable prices to satisfy the diverse needs of international and domestic travellers.

Per Ola Jönnerheim, Managing Director at R&F said: “We are absolutely thrilled and delighted about this opportunity. We are passionate about retail and about providing a great customer experience.

“We aim to offer famous global brands at the best possible prices. Given our strong supply chain and logistics, our intention is to deliver a wide and diverse range of brands to Cologne Bonn Airport customers.”

Torsten Schrank, Managing Director & CFO at Flughafen Köln/Bonn GmbH said: “We are very pleased to welcome our new partner R&F. Finding new partners is not something we take for granted in times of crisis and speaks for the attractiveness of our airport.

“The innovative, flexible shopping concept not only offers our customers an exciting shopping experience, but will also allow us to respond even better to the wishes and needs of our passengers in the future.”

As an affiliated company to Stena Line, R&F was founded in 1979 and today distributes in excess of 47 million premium travel retail items to more than 90 shops.
