The following is the [Travel News]: Estee Lauder says duty-free sales in China are bouncing back from [Bloomberg Quint] recommended by TheTourAttraction.com:

Travelers are flocking to duty-free shops on Hainan Island, a southern province known for its beach resorts, with domestic visits reaching 80% of pre-Covid levels.

Estee Lauder Cos. sees a revival in China’s tourism — a promising sign in a critical growth market for international brands. 

Chief Executive Officer Fabrizio Freda said Monday that Chinese travel stores — the type seen in airports and train stations — were a “stand-out performer” in the company’s most recent quarter, posting double-digit growth. Global travel sales, meanwhile, were flat from a year earlier. 

“Demand from the Chinese consumer was very strong,” Freda said on a conference call with analysts, citing the reopening of more travel corridors in Asia and robust online sales.

Travel retail, including duty-free, was red-hot before the pandemic as brands expanded their sales to tourists traveling abroad — especially from countries like China. Luxury labels from fragrance and cosmetics to winter apparel turned transit centers into a key source of growth.

Estee Lauder shares surged as much as 8.3% to $237.82 in New York trading on Monday, touching a record high. They were trading up 1.8% as of 1:07 p.m. in New York. 

Travelers are flocking to duty-free shops on Hainan Island, a southern province known for its beach resorts, with domestic visits reaching 80% of pre-Covid levels, Freda said. New policies boosted purchase limits for shoppers more than threefold in July, as the Chinese government seeks to turn the area into a commercial hub.
