Abu Dhabi Airports has awarded two retail units to retail conglomerate Lulu Group in its upcoming new Midfield Terminal at Abu Dhabi International Airport.

During a ceremony, Bryan Thompson, CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports signed the agreement with Saifee Rupawala, CEO of Lulu Group for a specialist gifting retail space and a dedicated non-food department store encompassing a total of 1,833 sqm.

Lulu Group has been added to an exciting line-up of brands at the Midfield Terminal, spread across 28,000 sqm of retail space for duty-free shopping, dining, relaxing and entertainment, catering to the diverse needs of Abu Dhabi International Airport’s passengers.

The partnership with Lulu Group is a result of Abu Dhabi Airports’ commitment to developing strategic partnerships with local industry within the UAE, ensuring that local products and services are a key aspect of the world-class passenger experience delivered by the Midfield Terminal.

“The Midfield Terminal is one of the region’s most significant aviation infrastructure projects, and it is only fitting that it will now be home to one of the region’s most successful international conglomerates. Lulu Group will make a significant contribution to our long-term retail strategy, and we look forward to working closely with them in the coming months and years,” said Al Nahyan.

“We are delighted to partner with the Lulu Group as we work to deliver the Midfield Terminal. This deal showcases the inclusive and diverse retail environment present at Abu Dhabi International Airport, and we are confident that the addition of the Lulu brand will contribute towards providing passengers with an enjoyable and memorable experience when arriving, departing or transiting through the airport,” Thompson added.

To reflect the modern and new-age design of the terminal building in all aspects of the new terminal, Lulu Group has brought on board leading international architects to design its ultra-modern and futuristic stores. The retailer has also committed to stocking handpicked, high-quality products, offered at affordable prices and sold exclusively at the upcoming Lulu outlets at the Midfield Terminal.

“We are really excited and proud to have been awarded retail space in the upcoming world-class new Midfield Terminal at Abu Dhabi International Airport. Our legacy of more than four decades in the retail industry across the UAE, GCC & other parts of world will surely hold us in great esteem to come up with a trend-setting retail ambiance both in terms of design and product offerings. We are leaving no stones unturned to deliver a world-class shopping experience to the millions of travellers expected to arrive in Abu Dhabi,” stated Yusuffali.
