Stellar Partners, led by CEO Padraig Drennan has opened six travel retail locations in the new terminal at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

Stellar Partners has started operating six travel retail locations in the new terminal at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

The new $1.3bn 927,000sq ft facility was officially inaugurated yesterday (5 November 2019) and is due to open to the public today (6 November 2019).

Yasmin Sheriff, Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Alliances, Stellar Partners said: “Along with our partners, Stellar is very excited to begin operating in Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. We congratulate the city on the new airport and look forward to growing as part of the New Orleans community.”

Stellar will operate four travel convenience shops in a joint venture partnership with Harley London LLC. One outlet is called WhereTraveler, which is exclusive to Stellar and is now a branded travel convenience store located on Concourse B. Another is The New. Stand, which is located in the main terminals and is a travel convenience concept.

A proprietary travel convenience shop developed specifically for the airport, News & Coffee @MSY creates a strong sense of place on the ticketing level at the airport and provides a range of travel essentials. Finally, The New. Stand, located on Concourse C brews Peet’s Coffee.

Alongside the travel convenience stores, Stellar runs two speciality retail outlets. One is Dirty Coast on Concourse B offering tee-shirts and accessories. The other is Bourbon Sweets on Concourse C which sells a range of candies.

The openings in New Orleans follow the addition of new fashion and news and convenience outlets in PHL and introduction of Fiorello and iPorte retail units in the new Delta terminal at La Guardia International Airport.
