Innovation That Matters

Flight 001 | Update

Travel & Tourism

While aviation has known easier times, the store devoted to air travel, Flight 001, is doing well. Flight 001 opened in New York in 2002, and was one of the first concepts Springwise covered. So we were happy to hear that the retail chain recently opened a shop in Brooklyn, adding to stores in LA, San Francisco, Chicago, Dubai and Berkeley. Named for the Pan Am flight that flew around the world (westbound) from San Francisco to New York, Flight 001 sells everything a frequent flyer might need, from a wide array of luggage to toile passport holders, in-flight aromatherapy kits and Pan Am lunch bags. Opportunities? We still think Flight 001 or similar stores would go down just as well in travel hubs across Europe and Asia. Spotted by: A Brooklyn Life
