Retail revamp for T1 at Dublin Airport
A new €8m retail area has opened at Terminal 1 in Dublin Airport.
The airport said it will showcase the best of Irish and international brands.
The Loop's new state-of-the-art retail area, which includes more than 18,300 sq ft of new stores, represents the culmination of 18 months of development and construction in the airside retail area of the Terminal 1.
Paul Neeson, retail director at the airport, said the customer experience will be dramatically improved.
"It will also help increase overall passenger spends. The income that is generated from this commercial activity in turn subsidises airport charges at Dublin," Mr Neeson said.
The development includes new and refreshed stores such as the award-winning Irish Whiskey Collection, Candy Cloud, a new confectionery concept created in Ireland and the Wine Goose Chase.
The new retail area will serve a growing number of customers at Dublin Airport, as passenger numbers increased by 8pc to 21.7 million last year.
That growth is set to continue into this year.
