Bahrain Duty Free Complex has announced its financial results for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and has started its retail upgrading program at Bahrain International Airport. 

Mr Farouk Yousuf Al Moayyed, Chairman of the Board, said the company had achieved a net profit of US$14.2 million compared with last year's of US$18.9 million.
