Dubai Duty Free has won the award for ‘Best Duty Free Shop’ from US-based magazine title Global Traveler for the second year running. The award was presented at a ceremony at the Bel Air Hotel in Los Angeles , which brought together over 300 representatives from the global travel industry.
The Global Traveler Awards are the result of a reader’s survey which attracted a record 31,457 responses. Readers gave their preference in 55 individual categories, which included airlines, loyalty programmes, destinations, hotels and airports. The 2008 survey included a ‘Best Duty Free Shops’ category for the second time.
The Global Traveler Award marks the first award of the year for Dubai Duty Free, which celebrated its 25th anniversary in December 2008 and ended the year with record sales of US$1.1 billion. The opening of Emirates Terminal 3 in October 2008 resulted in the retail operation doubling to 15,000sq m while its staffing levels rose to 3,700.
