Tech-Airport, the Swatch Group's airport retail company, has won the tender of the new Berlin Brandenburg International (BBI) Airport in Germany, and will operate from July 2012 four new Watch and Jewelry store concepts.

The successful concessionaire will offer two “Hour Passion” watch and jewelry retail outlets, an Omega store, and one Swatch store island in the heart of the retail market.

This notification reflects the across the Rhine airports confidence as it just follows the recent opening of its first German outlet in the Terminal C of Düsseldorf airport. It will bring Tech-Airport to a chain of 33 concessions.

In the meantime, the leading watch and jewelry airport retailer is further expanding its network with the opening of an “Hour Passion” concept boutique in the new Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport.

Tech-Airport, a company of The Swatch Group Ltd., in association with The Swatch Group Ireland Ltd., is opening its 30th store in an 86 m² area, whose modern technological, eco-friendly and functional design fits in perfectly with the innovative and contemporary terminal building. Taking advantage of the natural light flooding the boarding area, the boutique is almost open-fronted, inviting passengers to freely wander through the retail area to discover a full, appealing and accessible collection of many well-known watch brands: Swatch, Flik Flak, Certina, Calvin Klein Watches and Jewelry, Hamilton, Tissot, Rado, Longines … together with a selection of chic modern jewelry.

A little further away, in the restaurant area, Flik Flak, the children's Swiss watch brand is the name behind the exclusive concept of a fantastic children's 50 m² play zone. Faithful to its spirit, the Flik Flak brand plays with time and makes it fun. Plenty of fun and games for young passengers in Dublin's Terminal 2!

It already has boutiques in seven European and Asian airports: Paris Roissy and Orly (France), Nice Côte d'Azur (France), Nantes Atlantique (France), Geneva (Switzerland), Changi (Singapore) and Düsseldorf (Germany). Its boutiques operating under the Hour Passion, Omega and Swatch brand names are now a reference point in European airports.
