A VIP Endorsement for Cahors

"Cahors Malbec" Displays Take Their Place in the Roissy Charles de Gaulle Lounges

Drawn by the high level of quality as well as the dynamic marketing of the Cahors region, the management of Air Salons Aéroport have reached an exclusive partnership agreement with the Wines of Cahors Organization (Union Interprofessionnelle du Vin de Cahors).

In this agreement, AOC wines of Cahors will be the only red wines promoted in the six VIP lounges at Roissy Charles de Gaulle, the world’s fifth ranking airport in terms of passenger traffic (according to the Airports Council International report of March 25, 2009).

"Cahors Malbec" displays will be placed in the Business and First Class lounges of roughly thirty international air carriers, including American Airlines, United, Emirates, Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines and Air China. These carriers represent a 35% share of market by value.
