Dubai Duty Free was named as the “Best Duty-Free Shopping in the World” for the fourteenth consecutive year at the virtual award ceremony for the 2020 Global Traveler – GT Tested Reader Survey Awards.

Organised by FXExpress Publications Inc., the awards ceremony was hosted by Francis X. Gallagher, CEO & Publisher of Global Traveler and announced the winners for the 2020 FXExpress awards, including the GT Tested Reader Survey awards, The Trazees, the Wherever Awards and the Leisure Lifestyle Awards.

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.

“It is a great honor to receive our fourteenth “Best Duty-Free Shopping in the World” award from Global Traveller magazine and be recognised as the leading duty free in the world. This award is a testament to all the hard work that our team has undertaken, even during these difficult times.  Thank you to all the readers who voted for us”, said Dubai Duty Free’s Executive Vice Chairman & CEO, Colm McLoughlin.
