CU launches 2 stores in Mongolia’s new airport
One store caters to travellers, whilst the other is available only to airport staff.
CU has launched two new stores in Mongolia’s newly opened New Ulaanbaatar International Airport, which is said to be the first South Korean convenience store chain to establish outlets in the airport, Yonhap reported.
One store in the departure lounge caters to travellers and offers instant noodles, snacks, beverages, instant coffee, and instant-prepared food, with the other outlet available only to airport staff, CU said.
The sole international airport in Mongolia, which opened on 1 July and is also known as Chinggis Khaan International Airport, is about 50 kilometres from the Mongolian capital and has a daily passenger capacity of around 12,000.
The opening of the two outlets in the airport came four years after CU made forays into the Mongolian market through a franchise deal with local retailer Central Express.
CU currently operates 130 stores in Mongolia after launching its first outlet in Ulaanbaatar in August 2018.
