Shoppers delight at Sydney Airport, finally

Hannah Edensor

Sydney Airport’s renovations are well underway, with the first of six new duty free stores officially unveiled.

Sydney Airport and new duty free partner Heinemann have unveiled the store in Terminal 1 as part of the T1 improvement program to deliver a world-class airport experience for passengers and visitors.

The newly designed 1200 square metre duty free store in Pier C Arrivals will showcase an extensive range of fragrances, cosmetics, wine, liquor and confectionery, and has been designed by Gebr.

Heinemann’s in-house design team worked in collaboration with renowned Australian architectural firm Geyer.

The new store is inspired by Sydney’s iconic landscapes from the bush, through the suburbs, past the city fringe and out to the coastal regions, allowing passengers to embark on a uniquely Australian retail journey as they make their way through the store.

The revised store layout includes larger orientation zones with wider, more direct pathways and improved thoroughfare for passengers.

“As the world’s third largest travel retailer, Heinemann has impressed customers with their unique approach to the traditional duty free experience,” Sydney Airport’s general manager retail Glyn Williams said.

“It’s fantastic to see the first of six offerings now open at T1 and it’s a testament to the incredible work Sydney Airport and Heinemann have undertaken over the past five months.

“On completion, the Heinemann duty free offering at Sydney Airport will showcase an extensive range of new brands providing an exceptional passenger experience as we deliver four further stores in T1 Departures and another store in Arrivals, with all six stores expected to be completed and open by mid-2016.”
