Japanese travel retailer Jalux has launched its first airport outlets outside Japan, with three stores at Hanoi Noi Bai International Airport in Vietnam.
Located in Terminal 2, the stores are trading as Jalux Duty Free Vietnam, with two in the Departures area and one in Arrivals. The stores focus on introducing Japanese brands to travellers, picking up on growing demand across Asia for genuine Japanese goods.
Jalux Duty Free is a joint venture between Jalux (51 per cent) and Vietnamese company Thang Long Air Services (Taseco).
Jalux has airport stores across Japan, including JAL Duty Free and Blue Sky stores.
Taseco is engaged in retailing both on and off airport, as well as having interests in wholesale, beverages, hotels and restaurants.
