PMI launches smoke-free IQOS ILUMA in Japan Duty Free
Philip Morris International Inc, which launched IQOS ILUMA on August 17, has announced the launch of IQOS ILUMA PRIME in Japan Duty Free.
This launch marks the latest and most innovative addition to their growing portfolio of smoke-free products for adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use nicotine products.
“Our objective is a world without cigarettes; a world where cigarettes are replaced by smoke-free alternatives that are a better choice than continued smoking,” said PMI CEO Jacek Olczak. “We have launched several generations of our IQOS heated tobacco system; expanding our portfolio to offer constantly improved, science-backed solutions that take advantage of advancements in technology and address pain points heard from consumers. This commitment to continuous innovation plays a significant role in our ambition to deliver a smoke-free future. The launch of IQOS ILUMA, our most innovative device yet, gives adult smokers another better choice and represents an important leap forward in our efforts to accelerate the end of smoking.”
“The launch of the IQOS ILUMA PRIME, our most refined and advanced device yet, in Japan Duty Free, further demonstrates our constant commitment to delight our legal age consumers in travel retail with our most premium and stylish product range. We have extended our product offering in Japan Duty Free with IQOS ILUMA PRIME—available in a choice of four new colors and with our largest ever range of accessories.” said Edvinas Katilius, Vice President PMI Duty Free.
“IQOS ILUMA is our most innovative offering to-date and the new flagship in our portfolio of science- backed, smoke-free products. Its breakthrough induction-heating technology heats tobacco from within, without burning, so there’s no smoke, no ash and, like previous IQOS devices, it emits, on average, 95% lower levels of harmful chemicals compared with cigarettes,” said Michele Cattoni, Vice President Heated Tobacco Platforms at PMI. “However, unlike our previous tobacco-heating systems, IQOS ILUMA has no blade. That means no tobacco residue or cleaning—ever. With this, and other product features, we aim to address consumer pain points that may have hindered some adult smokers from beginning or maintaining their journey away from cigarettes in the past.”
