Uniquely Queensland News and Café launches at BNE

Leading global travel retailer Lagardere AWPL has opened its first Bound concept store at Brisbane Airport, a bespoke bookstore and boutique espresso bar, focussed on delivering the finest local produce and supporting Queensland merchants. 

Located at the Domestic Terminal, Bound is the last of Lagardere AWPL's 10 new stores to open as part of Brisbane Airport’s A$40 million Domestic Terminal upgrade project, and the first Lagardere AWPL store to open in Brisbane since their corporate merger earlier this year. 

The store offers travellers a uniquely Queensland experience, celebrating the very best of Brisbane and South East Queensland providores. Local favourite and award-winning coffee roaster, Bellisimo Coffee, and pastry powerhouse Jocelyn’s Provisions are two of the exciting new brands landing at Brisbane Airport, exclusively available at Bound. 
Martin Ryan, Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) Executive General Manager Commercial, said he is proud to see the first Bound concept store open at Brisbane Airport. 

“We are incredibly excited to see Bound open at our Domestic Terminal, allowing passengers to shop the latest book releases, search for the perfect gift and grab a delicious coffee and pastry all at the same time. 

It’s great to welcome another store to the Brisbane Airport family, continuing our strong, long-term relationship with Lagardere AWPL. With passenger numbers at our Domestic Terminal back to 100% of pre-Covid levels during the school holidays, you can sense an exciting energy when you’re in the terminal.” 

Costa Kouros and Przemek Lesniak, CEO’s of Lagardere AWPL, said they were thrilled to see the first Bound books and café concept open in Brisbane . 

“Bound is a true representation of all we stand for; a bespoke concept for our customers, brought to life locally by our passionate team, using the global support within our family. 

Thank you to Brisbane Airport for your trust in this project, and everyone involved in bringing it to life. Our team can’t wait to welcome all guests on your next trip through Brisbane Airport” they said. 

Lagardere AWPL operate a number of stores at both the Brisbane Domestic and International terminals, including News@BNE. Bound is located at the QANTAS end of the terminal, near Gate 23.
