Lindt to open 35sq m travel retail boutique at Changi next year

Lindt will christen its first non-Switzerland travel retail boutique at Changi Airport T1 in March 2025.

Chocolatier Lindt & Sprüngli has partnered with confectionery distributor and retailer Focus Network Agencies (FNA Group International) and Changi Airport Group (CAG) to unveil the first-ever Lindt travel retail boutique outside Switzerland in Singapore.

The 35sq m space, set to open in March 2025 at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 1, steps up Lindt’s expansion in Asia Pacific.

It will carry Changi exclusives, gifting options and the recognisable Lindt Pick & Mix, among other merchandise.

A fun and engaging retail environment has been promised to travellers, delivering on what Lindt says are key growth drivers outlined in its category vision.

Peter Zehnder, Head of Global Travel Retail at Lindt & Sprüngli, commented: “Singapore Changi Airport is a significant global travel hub known for its world-class retail offer and experiences. The debut Lindt travel retail boutique outside of Switzerland is an exciting step forward in our expansion plans as we aim to provide international travellers with premium shopping experiences and delight them with the finest Swiss chocolate.

“FNA Group International’s expertise in the Asia Pacific confectionery market has been instrumental in the planning of the boutique and we look forward to a fruitful partnership with them over the coming years.”

To celebrate the opening in March, Lindt is planning special promotions and events, including appearances from Lindt’s master chocolatier.

Pamela Loo-Song, Director, Retail & Local Sales at FNA Group International, commented: “Lindt & Sprüngli is renowned across the world for its delicious, premium chocolates so we’re delighted to enhance the confectionery offer at Changi Airport with a dedicated Lindt boutique.

“We’re pleased to be able to share Lindt’s commitment to premium quality and excellence with travellers at Changi Airport and hope they enjoy discovering the brand’s exquisite ranges and exclusives.”
