“We are happy to see such a positive result during our annual anniversary sale both in store and online.

“I would like to thank everyone for marking this special occasion with us and a special thanks to our staff, who did a great job in serving the passengers and online customers alike,” he added.

Meanwhile online sales doubled during the same period with the ‘Click & Collect’ service, which offers travelers the chance to order goods in advance of their flight, generating over Dhs6.944 million (US$1.902 million) in the 72-hour period. A total of 6,331 orders were received in advance of customers travelling, with the most popular categories including Perfumes & Cosmetics, Liquor, Watches and Technology.
