The operator has opened a new multi-category duty-free outlet in terminal E and is set to open a further two outlets by the end of the month

Russian airport retail operator RegStaer has opened a new duty-free store at Moscow Sheremetyevo International airport terminal E. The 245sq m (2,637sq ft) shop is situated in the part of the terminal that joins with TD and has three of the terminal’s eight boarding gates.

The outlet stocks all major duty-free product categories including fragrances, cosmetics, liquor, tobacco, canned seafood and toys as well as featuring its own wine cellar. According to the retailer, the opportunity to open a store in this particular location resulted from the opening of the airside gallery between TD and TE, which allows passengers who have cleared security to move freely between TD, TE and TF. The passage between TE and TF is already open. The initiative will enable the airport to serve up to 25m passengers annually.

RegStaer is planning to open a second 50sq m (538sq ft) outlet on November 22 2010 dedicated to sunglasses, luggage and travel accessories. Samsonite, Piquadro and Aigner will be among the initial brands on offer, with Tumi and Texier to follow at a later date. In addition, a 140sq m (1,507sq ft) outlet in TE is expected to be operational by the end of the month featuring watches and jewellery brands. The retailer said there will be six watch brands including TAG Heuer and Maurice Lacroix housed in branded corners, with other labels such as Rado, Tissot and Frederique Constant displayed elsewhere on RegStaer regional displays.

RegStaer commercial director Vadim Sagiev told DFNIonline: “We hope that the transition of some more international flights to TE will provide more customers for the duty-free shops. At present it seems that Aeroflot plans to transfer around 20 flights to TE from TD and TF by the end of the year, which can only be a good thing.”
