Voted by the readers of Global Traveler, Dubai Duty Free came out tops in the publication’s 17th Annual GT Tested Reader Survey Awards conducted between January-September 2020. More than 22,000 people responded to the survey that honors airlines, airports, duty-frees, hotels, loyalty programs and travel-related products in more than 80 categories.
