Bulgari unveils its first jewelry, watches and leather goods Pop-up at Helsinki Airport

As part of a collaborative ‘trinity’ partnership, the Finnish airport operator Finavia Corporation, Italian luxury brand Bulgari and global travel retailer Dufry have worked together to develop the first Bulgari Pop-up store worldwide in an airport location. The Pop-up is dedicated to jewelry, watches and accessories.
 
The leading global travel retailer Dufry operates the Pop-up. “The extended Pop-up shop will be available to passengers in the non-Schengen-area of Helsinki Airport for at least one year.  It represents another innovative retail concept, created as a result of the strong relationship we have with Bulgari and Finavia.” said Karl Walter, Managing Director at Dufry for Finland & Sweden. He continues, “With our decades of experience in the travel retail sector, we know that it’s important for customers at airports to be able to purchase premium products that represent the ultimate in terms of quality, as is the case here with Bulgari at the Helsinki Airport”.
 
At Helsinki Airport, an extensive 900 million euro expansion project is under way. Among others, the terminal will be expanded by 103,000 square meters, the number of bridge gates for wide-body aircraft will be doubled from 8 to 16, and baggage handling capacity will increase by 50 per cent. The aim is to strengthen Helsinki Airport’s strong competitive position even further. The airport is getting ready to serve 30 million passengers meanwhile preserving short transit times, friendly staff and world class, innovative services.
