Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 10 February 2010

The Airport Authority Hong Kong is inviting interested retail partners to an open tender for twelve specialty shops - ten located at the SkyMart Avenue (non-restricted area) and two at the Departures North Concourse (restricted area) - in Terminal 1, Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

Tenders are invited for the specialty shops located at SkyMart Avenue with sizes ranging from 22 to 31 square meters. Situated in the non-restricted area between the check-in counters and the Departures Immigration Halls, SkyMart Avenue is the main artery of the Departure Level where many departing passengers pass through.

 Nearly 10 million meeters and greeters per year, over 60,000 airport staff, guests from nearby hotels, as well as AsiaWorld Expo exhibitors and visitors pass through HKIA. With such a diverse and large volume of traffic, these ten shops present excellent opportunities for fashion and fashion accessories, casual wear, health concepts, telecommunications and other specialty concept retailers.

The two shops in the Departures North Concourse are located at the newly opened retail space near Gates 15-19, neighbouring popular perfumes and cosmetics, Liquor & tobacco and audio visual shops. Around 40% of mainland-bound passengers board their flights at Gates 15-19. Chinese Mainlanders are the top spenders at HKIA with an average spending of over HK$1,300. Spanning 396 square meters and 604 square meters, respectively, the two stops are in an ideal size for ready-to-wear of single fashion brand or fashion designer brand to display their wares.

HKIA is one of the busiest airports in the world, recording a passenger throughput of 46.1 million in 20092]. Departing passengers dwell time is around 4 hours at HKIA, with an average of over 3 hours being spent within the restricted area. These positive factors are reflected in a double-digit compound annual sales growth of HKIAs retail businesses between 1999 and 2008.

The tender will close on 16 March 2010 at 11 am, Hong Kong time.
