The 2196sq ft store is located in the newly expanded section of the lounge and introduces a number of new concepts and digital features to Dixons Travel.
These include dedicated spaces demonstrating the latest in home, health and sports SMART technology - from controlling Philips hue lighting via an Apple watch to playing the latest virtual reality game – and 50+ metres of digital signage lining the entire internal store perimeter, highlighting tailored offers and explaining the latest tech benefits to improve the shopping experience.

managing director, said: “We are really excited to be opening this new look store and providing a unique shopping experience designed especially with passengers in mind.”

Every aspect has been meticulously designed, bringing together cutting-edge design and technology under one roof.”
