A leading specialist in the European travel retail market

Inflight Service was acquired by Triton Fund II in February 2010

Inflight Service (“IFS”) has grown to become a leading specialist in the European travel retail market, focused on airline retailing and with a unique pre-order concept that enables IFS to target end-consumers prior to departure.

At acquisition, IFS was a diversified travel retailer. In addition to its airline offering, IFS also operated airport and harbour shops under the EUROSHOP brand in Sweden, Poland and Estonia, as well as stores onboard the ferries of Fjord Line (Norway) and Unity Line (Poland). IFS also offered wholesale and logistics services to customers across the three segments who chose to operate its stores and retail offering in-house.

Triton sold IFS to a strategic buyer in February 2016.
