DFW Airport Announces new Duty-Free partnership with TRG to transform customer experience in International Terminal D

The TRG Duty Free joint venture, with DFASS and CBI Retail Ventures as majority shareholders, has won the 10-year lease for the innovative new 1,200-square-meter store. After receiving 116 proposals for 35 available locations, Dallas/Fort Worth Airport has revealed some of its new concessionaires, mostly in Terminal D as part of its upgrade. 

In a cutting-edge move, the airport made an agreement with American Airlines to convert two of its seating areas into the new store. An additional five  locations totaling approximately 1,800 square meters are also part of the duty free package.

As part of the airport's US$2.3 billion Terminal Renewal and Improvement Program, the airport will be offering an impressive selection of luxury and local brands, including Bohlin Company western wear, Fort Worth distiller TX Whiskey and native Texas artist James Surls.

"Terminal D hosts more than 7 million international travelers each year, and as our international profile grows those customers look for world-class experiences and amenities," said Sean Donohue, chief executive officer for DFW Airport. "The new duty-free experience at DFW will transform Terminal D and bring our customers an unparalleled level of luxury and service with high-end brands, VIP concierge services, cutting-edge technology and local flair." 

The airport’s new F&B offerings include the Italian Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck, and Fort Worth’s Rio Mambo Tex Mex y Mas, which will replace Bennigan’s and TGI Fridays. Other new concessions announced this week and previously include a Longchamp store, a Wall St. Journal newsstand, Michael Kors, L’Occitane and Montblanc.
