Duty Free Americas opens new airport store in Belo Horizonte
Duty Free Americas (DFA) has opened a new landside store in the passenger terminal lounge at Belo Horizonte Tancredo Neves Confins International Airport (Confins International Airport) in Brazil.
The store will offer customers duty paid products in perfumes, cosmetics, clothing accessories, electronics, wines and spirits, watches, chocolates and snacks.
DFA Brazil currently operates in nine of Brazil’s most important airports.
The company said that the new Belo Horizonte store was an important step in DFA’s expansion in Brazil, which has included the recent opening of a new duty free Arrivals store in Salvador, and 11 convenience stores in a joint venture with WHSmith in Rio de Janeiro Galeão and São Paulo Guarulhos airports.
In the upcoming months, two brand new stores in São Paulo Guarulhos Airport, one new duty paid shop in Salvador and a complete renewal of two stores in Porto Alegre will continue to support the expansion plan in Brazil.
Leon Falic, President of DFA, said: “With the largest economy in Latin America, Brazil continues to be a key market in our regional strategy. We are committed to the development of DFA Brazil operations and continue to look forward to a prosperous future together with our local partners.”
