fashion brands this summer as part of its £13m "One Terminal"
redevelopment to improve the passenger experience
Next, Superdry, Accessorize and JD Sports will all be located within
the Airport’s departure lounge, available to all outbound passengers
These new stores will create around 50 new jobs, and together
with the opening of a brand new 19,000 sq.ft walk-through duty
free area this month, will change the passenger shopping
experience dramatically at Birmingham Airport
Richard Gill, Head of Market Development, Commercial said,
"We’re delighted to have attracted such major names. Our
development strategy is all about improving the customer
experience and creating a global gateway that not only serves
the immediate region but also the wider catchment" .
"Clearly, these popular brands have recognised what Birmingham
Airport has to offer and want to be part of its future success"
In addition to the new retail opportunities, the £13m investment
by the Airport has also seen the merger of its two terminals into
one, creating a central security search area and arrivals area for
meeters and greeters
Over the next 10 years, Birmingham Airport will invest
a further £100 million on its infrastructure
