Shop opens in non-Schengen area of Oslo Gardermoen
The need for a shop in the non-Schengen area of Oslo’s Gardermoen Airport has now been filled with the opening of a new duty-free store.
Travel Retail Norway, a joint venture between Germany’s Gebr Heinemann and the Drammen-based company Norse-Trade, says the 300sqm store will sell Norwegian duty-free goods as well as perfumes, cosmetics, alcohol, tobacco and confectionery.
“As Oslo Airport has grown as a hub in the Nordics, we have seen a need for a shop in the non-Schengen area. We know this shop will be greatly appreciated from the travellers and a commercial success,” said Håkon Fjeld-Hansen, Travel Retail Norway’s managing director.
“We know many travellers want to get past the passport control as fast as possible, and therefore not stop in our other departure stores. But once they are inside the non-Schengen area they will now be able to shop with a steady pulse and assurance they will be able to board the airplane.”
Travel Retail Norway already has a strong presence at the airport, running a 2,400sqm store in departures and a 3,500sqm store in arrivals.
