11 Feb 2011 • by Natalie Aster

London – “The alternative to building a global network of airport retail operations for operators is to develop off-airport revenue, a strategy pursued by LVMH-owned DFS and Korea’s Lotte Duty Free. Having built a luxury proposition, DFS has shifted the focus of its tax and duty free stores from airports to downtown- and resort-based locations.” Verdict, (2010)

The Middle East & Africa was the fastest growing region over the last five years with sales reaching $2.7bn in 2010. The key to this growth has been Dubai, which over the last 25 years has transformed itself into a leading hub in the international aviation network through sustained investment to create world leading passenger facilities. Already the most valuable category, with sales of $8.1bn, beauty will achieve the fastest growth over the next five years, driven by strong demand in Asia and exclusive promotions on leading brands. Alcohol and tobacco will experience relatively weak growth with the potential for tobacco limited by trading restrictions. The alternative to building a global network of airport retail operations for operators is to develop off-airport revenue, a strategy pursued by LVMH-owned DFS and Korea’s Lotte Duty Free. Having built a luxury proposition, DFS has shifted the focus of its tax and duty free stores from airports to downtown- and resort-based locations.
