This week’s blog is written by Keith Hunter of Hunter Palmer. The message is simple: experience is everything – at least when it refers to airports! And when it comes to the Middle East, we have witnessed dramatic improvements in the last few years. New airports that not only provide excellent operational efficiency but remarkable duty free and food and beverage offerings, too. Airports that are prepared to harness technology in their constant pursuit of delivering the best possible experience for their travelling passengers. Keith’s overview is well worth reading.
This is a timely blog ahead of the MEADFA conference taking place in Beirut next week.
The industry focus this week stays in the Middle East, with the official opening of the new Muscat International Airport. I was honoured to be asked to produce a number of films for Muscat Duty Free, the first of which is being aired today on www.trunblocked.com Just scroll down. Simply put, the duty free and specialty retail there are world class. These films also appear in the special feature that www.moodiedavittreport.com have produced on the new airport.
