Lagardère and Bevco to operate duty free stores at Julius Nyerere Int’l Airport

Lagardère Travel Retail and local partner Bevco Limited have won the exclusive concession to operate two duty free stores at the new Julius Nyerere International Airport Terminal 3 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. It means Lagardère now operates duty free stores in four African markets.

The two new stores will cover 206m² and 160m² respectively, and feature core duty free categories, as well as travel accessories and souvenirs.

In 2017 Lagardère Travel Retail won a 10 year contract for the 1,000m² duty free concession at Senegal’s new Blaise Diagne International Airport, outside Dakar. In 2019, Lagardère opened its Aelia Duty Free and Relay shops in 600m² of space at Libreville’s Leon Mba International Airport. In September 2019, Lagardère acquired leading Belgian travel retailer International Duty Free, gaining a non-airport diplomatic duty free store in Nairobi.

Bevco is a leading Tanzanian spirits distributor, owned by multinational distributor Incodeal. It represents LVMH, Brown-Forman, Bacardi, Concha y Toro, Distell, La Martiniquaise-Bardinet, Les Grands Chais de France, Edrington and a range of smaller wine and spirits brands in Tanzania.
