Abu Dhabi Duty Free revenues surpass $100 million in Q1 2013


August 18, 2013 | By RetailME Bureau

Abu Dhabi Duty Free (ADDF) sales revenues showed significant growth in the first half of 2013, reaching $119.1 million, representing a 17.4% increase compared to the first six months of 2012.


The growth in revenue is largely attributed to the growth witnessed in the spend per passenger (SPP), which registered an increase from $14.69 in 2012 to $15 in 2013, recording a 2.1% increase compared with the same period last year. 

“Revenue at Abu Dhabi Duty Free continues to outgrow passenger growth clearly due to the exclusive shopping options and wide variety of special offers available year-round to passengers.  With 70% of all passengers using Abu Dhabi International Airport for transfer, ADAC is committed to further capturing the potential of this market by partnering with additional leading brands and retailers in order to ensure an unparalleled world-class experience,” says Mohammed Abdullah Al Bulooki, CCO, Abu Dhabi Airports.

“The recent introduction of Emporio Armani, and the expansion of the Burberry store in Terminal 3, builds on the success of long-standing retail partners, including Jimmy Choo, Hermes, Bvlgari, and Pure Gold, and makes Abu Dhabi International Airport the ultimate shopping destination for travellers.  As the Midfield Terminal comes to realization, Abu Dhabi Airports will look to new partnerships with world-leading retailers to ensure that passengers have a unique shopping experience during their journey through our airports,” adds Al Bulooki.

The Midfield Terminal Complex (MTC), soon to be the new home of ADDF, has been designed to cater to over 30 million passengers a year and will provide a space of over 300,000 sqft for duty free shopping, dining, relaxation (lounges) and entertainment.
