Avolta has opened a new duty-free store at the largest airport in Nigeria, Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos

Part of the airport’s newly constructed Terminal 2, the 400m2 walk-through store has been designed to meet the tastes of international travellers as well as the significant Nigerian diaspora, offering passengers a mix of global and local brands across the categories of food, alcohol and tobacco, as well as offering the largest duty-free beauty selection in the country. The store is equipped with self-service checkouts

Initially forged more than ten years ago, Avolta’s partnership with FAAN (Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria) has since introduced many global brands to Nigeria. The new store is set to redefine the local travel and shopping experience, complimenting the existing two stores operated by Avolta in Terminal 1 of the same airport since 2015, as well as its store in Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

Abdeslam Agzoul, CEO Middle East & Africa at Avolta, said: “The new Terminal 2 store at Murtala Muhammed International Airport is a milestone for Avolta in Africa. We are proud to play our part in the expansion of the airport, offering a rich product selection that sets new standards in airport shopping in the region, including a broad local assortment that offers passengers a taste of Nigeria.

“This is a significant leap forward in our mission to make travellers happier and enhance the consumer experience in Nigeria. We thank our long-standing partners at FAAN for the trust placed in us and look forward to our continued collaboration.”

The new Terminal 2 building is part of the ongoing development of five new terminals across Nigeria, part of a strategic plan to enhance the infrastructural development of Nigeria's airports and to position the country as a top-tier destination and transit hub in Africa.
