Tax & Duty Free
Classic duty free products, at fantastic prices in a luxury setting, are at the core of our main store concessions. World Duty Free Group operates its tax and duty free proposition under different store fascias depending on the location, and we research each individual airport customer profile in detail to determine the best solution. In Europe we have begun to roll out our new main store fascias, each inspired by and named after its location, and each taking on some of the key characteristics of that location to create a true ‘sense of place’ in the airport.
Once inside, ranges inspire and delight. A strong connection with many of the world’s top brands allows World Duty Free Group to carefully select its ranges, whether for fragrance, wine and spirits, luxury, fashion or tobacco. We showcase every product line in beautifully designed spaces, courtesy of our in-house design and development team and meticulous space planning discipline.
The Group also operates ‘express’ satellite stores located at departure gates and arrivals halls to offer a core tax and duty free range to cater for last minute purchases.
When customers want a deeper product experience, our range of specialist shops is designed to deliver. These store teams are renowned for their expertise and category knowledge and the product quality and range is exemplary.
