Tech-Airport wins the Nice Airport bid

Biel/Bienne, September 18, 2009 – Tech-Airport Holding SAS, a Swatch Group company specializing in retailing at airports, has won the bid to operate watch and jewelry outlets at the Nice Côte d'Azur airport.

Tech-Airport already operates twenty-eight stores – nine at Roissy Charles de Gaulle (France); nine at Orly (France), five in Nice (France), one in Nantes (France) and another is scheduled to open in Vienna (Austria) in 2010. The renewal of the contract on the Côte d'Azur and the continuous and successful expansion of its presence at different European airports underline the quality of Tech-Airport as a multi-brand retailer of jewelry and watches in an airport environment.

Tech-Airport will gradually introduce the HOUR PASSION concept in the airport boutiques at Nice Côte d'Azur and build a new exclusive point of sales in the business aviation terminal.
