APTRA (Asia Pacific Travel Retail Association) welcomed Auckland Airport as a new board member, representing the airport voice for Oceania, with personal representation from Lucy Thomas, its Head of Retail.
As one of the most progressive airport companies, Auckland International Airport is known for its business agility and creativity. It is one of New Zealand’s largest publicly listed businesses and it is one of only a few airports to have an advanced digital retail strategy, operated through its online airport duty/tax free retailer ‘mall’ model.
Sunil Tuli, President of APTRA welcomes the appointment and said, “Auckland Airport and Lucy are very welcome additions to the APTRA board. As the airport’s Head of Retail , Lucy brings invaluable experience and perspective in understanding solutions to the current challenges facing the industry alongside her personal knowledge in terms of the new retail thinking and strategies that Auckland Airport is renowned for. I’d like to thank Lucy and Auckland Airport for nominating themselves to contribute and be part of the APTRA Board.”
