This French Company run airline retail in-flight catalogues and the sales for a number of (mainly) European carriers, the most notable being Air France, Iberia and Alitalia. The Firm is a merger between Aelia the airport retail operator and “Aeroboutique”, the company responsible for in-flight sales and the “pouring” of drinks on board Air France.

In recent times the Firm was one of the first to introduce an online pre-order website for its clients, so that passengers know what is available in the airline duty-free shop, before they travel. Some years ago, Air France removed the sale of duty free cigarettes, tobaccos and alcohol from their in-flight retail brochure and product selection. KLM were similar, but recently re-introduced the sale of cigarettes on board.

Technology is coming to airlines where they can take your order online, before you travel and then transmit this data to your aircraft, so that the products are ready and waiting for you on your flight.

It is generally unknown that airline duty-free prices are often cheaper than the equivalent airport store deals and yet airlines only have a 7% share of the global travel retail/tax-free market, whereas airports hold a 60%+ share. Many of this Firm's catalogues offer an online voucher for pre-order customers. To find this link and any available coupon offers, search your airline in the panel above and 'go' to your destination or carrier.

The duty free on arrival global search 'App' for phone and tablet is now available in Android version beta v1, we are working hard to make it the best travel shopping site and mobile App available, the Apple/iOS version will follow soon. You will be able to search the globe from your phone for duty-free shops at your destination, on planes, boats, airports or border stores.
