A Turkey Desk team led by Dr. Ali Sahin and Dr. Erdem Şişmangil, LL.M, both Partners at Heuking’s Frankfurt am Main office, advised Turkish duty-free operator Setur on the award procedure to operate the duty-free and duty-paid areas at Cologne Bonn Airport. Following a Europe-wide invitation to bid, Cologne Bonn Airport selected Setur as the new partner for its duty-free areas.
The new retail sections will be located behind the passenger checkpoints in the security area in Terminals 1 and 2 and will offer passengers at Cologne Bonn Airport a varied shopping experience and a high-quality waiting zone.
Opening is scheduled for June 2023.
As a Koç Holding company, Setur was established under the roof of Setur Servis Turistik A.Ş. with the intention to operate in the duty-free retail management sector. It operates duty-free stores throughout Turkey by supplying products to 20 locations across land borders, seaports, and airports through its own logistics network. Its Edirne-Kapıkule stores operate Europe’s largest cross-border duty-free business.
