The Moodie Report e-Zine: January 26 issue live and accessible online now

INTERNATIONAL. The latest edition of The Moodie Report e-Zine is live and online now. As always, the trade’s only weekly magazine features data, comment and analysis of the top news stories of the past 7 days, all delivered via our unique tablet-friendly multimedia format.

The cover story in Issue 22 analyses Los Angeles World Airports’ (LAWA) appointment of Westfield Concession Management to oversee commercial development at Los Angeles International, including at the airport’s Tom Bradley International Terminal, undergoing major renovation work. The deal is a further coup for Westfield following its deal at Chicago O’Hare terminal 5, and signals LAWA’s determination to improve both commercial yield and the customer experience at the West Coast hub.

Other top stories in this week’s e-Zine cover Gebr Heinemann’s debut at St Petersburg Pulkovo airport, the burgeoning rivalry between Flemingo Duty Free and Autogrill Lanka in Colombo, and the latest efforts by the industry’s leading trade associations to defend liquor sales from regulatory attack.

The e-Zine’s regular Data Room section this week compiles a few of the record traffic numbers announced recently by several leading airports as 2011 full-year figures are revealed. In Site Lines, Melody Ng focuses on the budget airline sector, comparing and contrasting the online shopping offers of UAE-based flydubai and Spain’s Vueling Airlines.

In the Front Line, we meet Sylvia Wong, Sales Associate – Luxury Jewellery at DFS Galleria Sun Plaza in Hong Kong. And in the Never Hide interview this week, we talk to industry stalwart Peter Zottl, veteran of three decades with Swarovski and as enthusiastic as ever.

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