The Moodie Report e-Zine: 12 January issue live and accessible online now

INTERNATIONAL. This week’s issue of The Moodie Report e-Zine is live and online now. As always, the trade’s only weekly magazine features comment and analysis of the week’s top news stories plus the latest data, all delivered in a unique multimedia format.

Crucially, The Moodie Report e-Zine is fully iPad-compatible, with all editorial multimedia content – including video and podcasts – available to readers using tablet technology.

Among the news stories covered in detail this week are Incheon International Airport’s 2011 duty free sales figures, representing a world record for a single travel retail location. We also provide details of the current duty free tender at Los Angeles International Airport, which has attracted interest from a number of top travel retailers, including Korean operator The Shilla Duty Free.

Our main feature this week comes from London City Airport, one of the UK’s most popular hubs for business travel. The airport recently appointed a new duty free concessionaire, LS travel retail, and undertook improvements to its much-praised Departures lounge. Martin Moodie visits London City and takes a tour of the tax and duty free store, trading under the new-look Aelia Duty Free banner.

As ever, the e-Zine offers analysis of the latest traffic data, and this week our Data Room section focuses on figures published recently by ACI World. In other regular sections, this week’s Site Lines explores the shopping websites of two leading Asian retailers, The Shilla Duty Free and Nuance-Watson (Singapore), while Out in the e-Sphere looks at how social media are increasingly shaping perceptions of the travel experience.

We hope you enjoy this edition of The Moodie Report e-Zine and look forward to your feedback.
