Armani watches ‘to be sold on Qatar Airlines flights’

Air travellers are set to be offered the opportunity to buy Armani watches in mid-flight.

An agreement has been reached which will see luxury watches by Emporio Armani carried on board Qatar Airways flights so that they may be purchased by travellers.

Fossil Inc – a global distribution company which specialises in the provision of fashion accessories – has arranged the deal with the luxury carrier, The Moodie Report revealed.

Travel retail managing director at Fossil Robert Christiano told the report: “We are excited to be able to partner with one of the few five-star airlines in the world which has recently been named Airline of the Year 2009 at the TTG Awards in the UK.”

Models by Emporio Armani were featured in Qatar Airlines’ December issue of its in-flight magazine – and could now be back by popular demand.

The airline believes its passengers are demanding the opportunity to buy luxury watches by “esteemed” brands at incentivised duty-free prices.

Armani last month announced that it had opened a store in the world’s tallest tower – the Burj Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.ADNFCR-2664-ID-19589380-ADNFCR
