About us

We pioneer possibility by designing digital shopping experiences.

Our Vision

The story & inspiration behind Inflyter.

Our <strong>Vision</strong>

Two significant influences drive the Inflyter story; our founder Wassim’s experience of growing up in Paris with all its beauty and fine detail, and also his passion for air travel and the possibility it presents. For him and many others, travel is a lifestyle choice; taking delight in jumping on a plane at any opportunity, making the most of what the airport has to offer and enjoying the experience of getting from A to B, not just arriving at the destination.

Today, travellers often have to endure rather than enjoy their journey and we want to play our part in bringing back the wonder of travel. While our starting point is to reinvent the duty free shopping experience, we have exceptional ambition to take forward our Paris inspiration to design a more personalised, sophisticated and enchanting retail experience for travellers throughout their travel journey.
