3Sixty and Global Crossing Airlines agree new strategic partnership

By Andrew Pentol |

Alex Anson, Chief Operations Officer, 3Sixty Duty Free.

3Sixty Duty Free has partnered with Global Crossing Airlines to allow travellers to purchase a range of travel retail products via their onboard inflight duty free programme.

The Global X start-up is scheduled to begin operations in July with two aircraft in its fleet (one Airbus A320 and one A321).

Furthermore, it intends to grow its fleet by up to 10 aircraft over the coming 18 months, including a widebody A330 and several A321 passenger-to-freighter aircraft.

Alex Anson, Chief Operations Officer, 3Sixty Duty Free said: “The transaction announced today represents an exciting opportunity for 3Sixty. Joining forces with GlobalX further expands our omnichannel footprint and continues elevating the travel retail experience for customers.”

The initial phase of the partnership involves the implementation of 3Sixty’s inflight duty free programme with plans to include pre-order, home-delivery and their onboard pouring programme.

DIVERSE BRAND RANGE

Mark Salvador, GlobalX, Chief Marketing Officer commented: “Providing a diverse range of high-quality brands for passengers onboard our flights from Canada, Latin America, and the Caribbean was a major focus in selecting 3Sixty as our duty free partner.

“Their vast experience in travel retail makes them the perfect partner as we launch our airline service both domestically and internationally.”

3Sixty Duty Free operations will commence at GlobalX’s operating bases at Miami International Airport and Atlantic City International Airport, with plans to extend to other US airports.
