A Chanel store opened at Incheon International Airport Terminal 1 on Friday.  
 
It is located at Hyundai Department Store Duty Free.
 
The company said Chanel apparel, handbags, shoes and jewelry are available at the 405 square meter (4,359 square feet) shop.
 
Chanel returned to Incheon International Airport Terminal 1 for the first time in more than six years. The brand left in 2015.  
 
Terminal 1 now has the three major luxury brands: Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Chanel.  
 
A Chanel store was opened in 2018 at the airport’s Terminal 2. It is operated by Shinsegae Duty Free.  
 
“In preparation for the era where people live with the Covid-19, we plan on strengthening the competitiveness of merchandising in all of our duty free stores,” said a spokesperson for the company in a statement. “We will realize a premium lifestyle duty-free business by offering new experiences.”
 
Incheon International Airport welcomed the opening of Chanel store on Friday, holding an opening ceremony that was attended by 
Incheon International Airport Corporation President Kim Kyung-wook.  
 
Kim said that he thinks opening of Chanel store is "very meaningful" as it could contribute to a recovery of the airport duty-free business hit hard by the pandemic.
