Passengers have had their first chance to view a brand-new store with exclusive brands at Aberdeen International Airport. Discover Aberdeen has opened at the north-east’s major transport hub. It is the first store Lagardere Travel Retail UK and Ireland has opened following a new partnership with Aberdeen International Airport. The French-based corporation already operates thousands of stores worldwide in 39 countries. Discover Aberdeen will have a passion for all things Scottish from local produce to Harris Tweed, Whisky and souvenirs.
Aberdeen International Airport and Lagardere Travel Retail UK and Ireland have full range exclusivity for a number of brands at the new store including Stewarts of Scotland, Deans of Huntly shortbread, Steven Brown Art and Glen Appin. More than 10 jobs have been created at Discover Aberdeen and includes a mixture of full-time and part-time roles. Aberdeen International Airport and Lagardere Travel Retail UK and Ireland were recognised in the Scottish Parliament following a motion by North East Scotland MSP Tess White in May.
