By Wendy Morley

Avolta has announced a new six-year agreement to manage a 170-square-meter duty paid store at Brazil's Maceió-Zumbi dos Palmares airport. This store, which started operations at the end of January, offers a convenient walk-through shopping experience right in the central area of the Departures zone. It provides a wide range of products for travelers, such as perfumes & cosmetics, liquor, food & confectionery, jewelry & watches, fashion accessories, toys and souvenirs.

Maceió-Zumbi dos Palmares airport serves as a principal entry point to Brazil's lively tourist spots and historic cities, drawing more than 2.5 million visitors yearly based on 2023 data. By securing the contract for this duty-paid store in a new airport location, Avolta is significantly expanding its presence in Brazil.

Enrique Urioste, Avolta’s President & CEO for LATAM comments, “We are delighted to have been awarded this new contract at Maceió-Zumbi dos Palmares airport and we would like to take this opportunity to thank Aena and the airport team for the trust they have shown in us.

“As the leading global travel experience player, we will leverage our extensive knowledge and expertise in this region to take the airport’s shopping experience to an entirely new level for the millions of passengers who visit this airport each year. We look forward to working in close partnership with Aena to deliver the vision they have for the retail experience at Maceió-Zumbi dos Palmares airport, as we move closer to creating a travel experience revolution.”

Juan José Sánchez, CCO of Aena Brasil remarks, “Aena has been working to provide amazing travel experiences to passengers at its airports. The offer of a new commercial mix - with more shopping, services, and restaurants - is part of the new approach implemented at airports in Brazil. We are pleased to have Avolta on board to carry out this project at Maceió Airport.”
