Lagardère, LAP and Inflyter bring ‘Smart Locker’ to Jorge Chávez Airport

By Luke Barras-hill |

Customers can shop DF&TR at departures and collect their purchases on return to Peru, removing the need for carriage while travelling.

Passengers departing from Jorge Chávez International Airport in Peru can now choose to shop duty free and collect their purchases when they return to the country.

A partnership between Lagardère Travel Retail Perú, Lima Airport Partners (LAP) and Inflyter has introduced an automated ‘Smart Locker’ in the international luggage area outside the Aelia Duty Free arrivals store in a bid to raise conversion and reach new clients.

Travellers can enter a six-digit pin or scan the barcode printed on their purchase receipt at an interactive touch screen before scanning their boarding pass and passport to unlock the locker.

As reported, Lagardère Travel Retail inked a ground-breaking profit share agreement with LAP under a 13-year concession agreement in 2021 to exclusively operate duty free shops at the airport under the Aelia Duty Free fascia.

Lagardère Travel Retail says the introduction of the new automated locker is part of a drive to deliver more convenient shopping experiences via new concepts and products that heighten the customer experience, while securing additional revenue.
