In this month’s High Flyers’ column with The Moodie Davitt Report, ARI’s Deputy CEO and Chief Commercial Officer, Anthony Kenny, reflects on ARI’s journey to date, values, principles, and key strategic goals.

In the fast-paced realm of travel retail, being ahead of the curve is not just an advantage; it’s a necessity. Every day as the Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), and Deputy CEO at ARI, I’m reminded of our journey, from our heritage to our continued evolution and commitment to setting industry benchmarks.

At ARI, we have a legacy to uphold. Since we pioneered duty-free in 1947, I personally believe we have set the gold standard thereafter. Our success across the globe stands testament to our partnership approach and our relentless drive for exceptional retail. Our global track record isn’t just a point of pride at ARI; it’s a clear reminder of our responsibility to innovate and lead.


Our vision at ARI is clear: to be the world’s favourite airport retailer and partner of choice.
