Gebr. Heinemann has re-opened its Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport Terminal C stores after more than 15 months.
The entire terminal, which was only unveiled at the start of last year ceased operations in March 2020 due to the impact of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Terminals D and E, including the Gebr. Heinemann shops remained operational throughout.
Oleg Zhytomyrsky, Director Sales Eastern Europe & Central Asia at Gebr. Heinemann commented: “We are celebrating the restart of Terminal C with our joint venture Imperial Duty Free, which operates around 5,000 sqm of retail space at the terminal.
‘A GREAT CHALLENGE’
“The short lead time of only five weeks from the decision to put the terminal back into operation until the actual reopening was a great challenge. We were able to succeed thanks to the very committed cooperation of everyone involved.
“A very special thanks goes to all colleagues at Gebr. Heinemann as well as Imperial Duty Free for the efficient and very focused teamwork!”
As reported, Imperial Duty Free opened a 3,000sq m main walkthrough shop (pictured above) and 500sq m arrival shop in Terminal C which commenced operations in January 2020.
