HÀ NỘI — The national carrier Vietnam Airlines will co-operate with Hong Kong’s King Power Traveler to launch a duty-free shop named Lotushop starting in October this year.
The carrier said the co-operation would last five years, aiming to expand and improve the Lotushop’s quality service to four-star standard under Skytrax, the world airline and airport rating organisation.
It will offer a wide range of products such as perfume, cosmetics, watches, bags and suitcases so that passengers can shop on 30 international routes of Vietnam Airlines including South Korea, Japan, China, Britain, France, Russia and Germany.
Passengers are expected to experience convenient shopping with prices 15 per cent lower than downtown stores.
King Power Traveler specialists and banks have trained flight attendants on sales skills, product knowledge and use of information technology equipment to support sales and fulfillment of invoices for customs control.
The King Power Traveler is an affiliate of King Power Group in Hong Kong. It is trading in various sectors, in which it specialises in duty free retail, in many countries of Asia Pacific and Europe. — VNS
