INTERNATIONAL. Tunisia-based Hamila Duty Free has signed a new buy on board contract with Afriqiyah Airways, which will come into effect 1 July 2006. They have opened offices in Tripoli along with warehouses to supply the airline.

"AA [Afriqiyah Airways] is our first development in Libya. Others will follow mainly with other airline companies and border shops. Hamila Duty Free expansion concerns not only Libya, but also Algeria and Morocco," said Ghofrane Zitouni, Sales Director at the Hamila Group.

Hamila Duty Free will supply the buy on board catalogue and will be responsible for related training at the Libyan airline. All products except alcohol will be available.

In other news, Hamila said this month it is building two diplomatic stores. One store, in Algeria, will follow the creation of a warehouse, which is planned for completion by November 2006. The other will be built in Charjuia close to the Tunis Carthage International Airport and will begin operating in the first quarter of 2007. Suppliers will visit the stores at the end of the year to choose display space. A new range of Italian foods by Tesori Dell'arca, Italian furniture by Nicoletti Company and jewellery by Carlo Jewelry will be added.

Hamila Duty Free is also renovating its seaport stores as the company has extended its contract with CTN up to 2009. Renovations are also taking place onboard the El Habib ferry vessel of CTN (Compagnie Tunisienne de  Navigation), where Hamila has the duty free concession.
