Lyon airport welcomes new retailers at Terminal 2

Following the opening of a 10,000 m² retail and leisure area in the new Terminal 1B, it’s now the turn of the Square (the retail area at the entrance of Terminal 2) to acquire a new shopping space.

The former pharmacy (now at Terminal 1B) and the O’Picnic restaurant area will be replaced by two new stores before the summer:

– FNAC with a culture and leisure-based product range dedicated to passengers in transit,

– TRAVEL & CO by RELAY, a new boutique concept specialising in travel comfort.

Located before security control, the two shops will be accessible to passengers, those accompanying them as well as other visitors to the airport.

Work began late last year with the opening of a combined RELAY/Casino Shop (operated by Lagardère Travel Retail) and a PAUL restaurant at Terminal 2 arrivals. This complements the new offer at the Square of an Aelia Fashion and Beauty store, two restaurants (OL Brasserie & Atelier des Rives) and a Starbucks Café.

At the same time, the former food court at the entrance of Terminal 1A (Millie’s, Pizza Hut and Brioche Doré) will be replaced by a brand-new restaurant. On a 500 m² area, the self-service restaurant will have 240 seats and a large terrace. The concept is exclusive to Lyon-Saint Exupéry.

With 20 shops and restaurants, the retail outlets at the new Terminal 1B that opened last October are up there with the best in the world. They remain firmly rooted to their local area with retail outlets like Confluences Café, Alpages and Délices de Lyon.

Other eclectic brands are also available including Fedon, Mademoiselle Vernis and Looping. Passengers especially enjoy the 1400 m² plus AELIA DUTY FREE store.

Finally, pop-up stores welcoming up-and-coming brands and regional concepts bring the terminal to life all year round. With these temporary stores, Aéroports de Lyon is giving young designers an international showcase while providing passengers with a continually-changing retail offer.
