Located between Paper Plus bookstore and Airspresso Café, TravelPharm opened for business today and carries a wide range of travel essentials including sunscreen, insect repellent, toothpaste, deodorant, lip balm, pain killers, baby care products, and jetlag and travel sickness medications.
Natural skin care products are also on offer from Trilogy, Living Nature, Olive, Evolu, Antipodes & Linden Leaves along with a range of 100% New Zealand-produced items including natural health supplements from well-known brands like Goodhealth, Nutra-life, Blackmores, Comvita, Lifestream, and Manuka Health.
Sean Thompson, Queenstown Airport Corporation’s general manager of property, is looking forward to adding a dedicated travel pharmacy to the airport’s retail offering and believes it will improve the overall shopping experience.
“We’re continually working for our airport visitors by providing quality, choice and convenience.
“These stores have proven very popular at airports with those looking to pick up last minute travel supplies or gift items. We’re hoping TravelPharm will be just as successful here,” Thompson says.
TravelPharm director, Yoon Song, is excited about opening the new airport store - his second in New Zealand: "We have been operating at Auckland Airport for eight years now so have had a great opportunity to understand what our customers want and tailor our product range to suit their needs."
Queenstown has also reported a strong overall performance for November, with the total number of passengers moving through the airport up 17.3% compared to November 2013.
Domestic passenger numbers were up 15.1% for the month, and international passenger volumes continue to grow month-on-month, with a 26.2% increase compared to the same period last year.
