Dufry wins two contracts at Salvador International Airport

By Hibah Noor

Dufry has been awarded two new six-year concession contracts at Salvador International Airport in Brazil to operate an extended retail space with a total of three new shops, two of which will be duty free and one of which will be duty paid.

Under the new contract, a 788 square meter walkthrough duty paid store will be developed in the departures hall offering customers an extensive assortment of both local and international brands.

In the International area, the total duty free retail space of 825 square meters will be divided across an arrivals and a departures store, which between them will offer a wide range of goods across all the product categories including beauty, liquor, food and confectionery, tobacco, toys and souvenirs, fashion and luxury accessories.

Dufry has had a presence in the airport since 2015 where it operates a 95 square meter last-minute duty paid store.

The new contract consolidates the company’s strong footprint in South America and Brazil, where it operates in 30 and 17 locations, respectively.

Dufry said it would develop “significantly more retail space for the airport’s 7 million passengers, of which 430,000 are international passengers, and take their airport shopping experience to an exciting new level”.

Gustavo Fagundes, Chief Operating Officer for South America, said: “Dufry is delighted to have been awarded this important new contract and we would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners at Vinci Airports for the trust they have shown in us. With the new stores, in which we will be integrating the latest digital technologies, we will be able to offer a first-class airport shopping experience to passengers visiting Salvador International Airport.”

David Thompson, Commercial Director of Vinci Airports in Brazil, said: “We believe Dufry will offer an even better experience to its customers at Salvador Airport, ensuring an attractive and diverse offer of imported and domestic goods. At a time when air travel is resuming, it is very important to have strong partners that help make the journey of our passengers exceptional.”

Salvador International Airport is the ninth-largest airport in Brazil, serving 36 destinations.
