New duty free provider on board of UIA
Ukraine International Airlines entered into strategic partnership with the leading duty free retailer Duty Free Americas and Ukrainian provider Aerohandling LLC to present a new in-flight duty free selection and provide passengers with an opportunity to pre-order duty free items and make a purchase on board.
Partnership with Duty Free Americas, one of the world’s top 10 duty free retailers, allows UIA offering customers an enhanced duty free selection including novelties, new product groups, and bestsellers at the most competitive prices.
In July 2019, UIA will introduce its Pre-order Duty Free Selection platform enabling clients to pre-order duty free items and purchase them on board. The service will be available to passengers of international flights.
The option of pre-ordering duty free items and purchasing them on board best suits passengers who have any restrictions regarding cabin luggage dimensions and number of pieces.
“We are thrilled to introduce our in-flight duty free programme to better serve our customers, – noted Evgeniya Satska, UIA Communications Director. – We looked at several different duty free operators and chose DFA because they possess the industry expertise, strong product portfolio, and state-of-the-art technology. We look forward to growing the partnership and creating enhanced experience for our passengers.”
