International Duty Free is now part of Lagardère Travel Retail

International Duty Free (IDF) opens today a new era within its more than 60-year history: the company proudly joins the Lagardère Group through its Travel Retail branch, a worldwide leader operating 4.600 stores in “Travel Essentials”, Duty Free, Fashion and Foodservice in airports, train stations and other concessions in 38 countries.

The acquisition is nothing more than the natural next step in an industry where concentration is key in order to generate groups able to compete at worldwide level.

This is a fantastic opportunity for IDF to improve even more the service and offer it provides both its customers and its commercial partners. The teams are looking forward to working together and to give the “Belgian” touch to Lagardère Travel Retail operations.

Plenty of projects are in the pipeline! Stay tuned….
