February 10, 2016 – The Irish antitrust authorities have approved the acquisition of Retail inMotion and Media inMotion by inflight catering giant, LSG Sky Chefs.
Retail inMotion focuses on onboard retail, with expertise encompassing the procurement and distribution of buy-on-board products, management of buy-on-board programs, and IT support of those programs through proprietary software.
Media inMotion’s portfolio includes hardware and software solutions for inflight ‘retailment’ systems, which integrate onboard shopping capabilities with inflight entertainment systems to provide an additional sales channel to passengers, as well as broadening the range of products and services offered for sale onboard.
“Retail inMotion is now officially part of the LSG Group and I am very happy and proud of this,” said Erdmann Rauer, CEO of LSG Lufthansa Service Holding AG, the parent company of LSG Sky Chefs. “It is a win-win situation for everybody involved, as our core competencies perfectly complement one another. Our joint skillset allows us to respond to and actively address consumer and customer needs in this increasingly important market segment better than ever.”
