World Duty Free Group wins duty free contract at Düsseldorf Airport

World Duty Free Group (WDFG) has been awarded a 10-year concession contract to operate duty free stores at Düsseldorf International Airport, the third busiest airport in Germany after Frankfurt and Munich.

This is the first time the company, which is the retail division of Autogrill, has operated in the country and the concession contract is expected to generate total revenues of €875 million (£697 million) over the period 2013 to 2022.

“Winning the Düsseldorf tender is an endorsement of the competitiveness of our business model in proposing successful formulas, for the first time in the German market too, offering airport operators the know-how of a group with consolidated international experience,” said World Duty Free Group CEO José María Palencia.

The contract will commence in January 2013 and will see WDFG operate six shops covering a total of 4,000m2 in the airport’s three piers. The company will have exclusive rights to sell certain product categories, such as fragrances and cosmetics, spirits and tobacco products.
