World Duty Free store opened at Edinburgh Airport

Edinburgh Airport in Scotland has today (November 18) opened a new World Duty Free store for departing passengers, creating 44 new jobs in the process.

The new store is the latest development in a five-year masterplan, which includes a £50m (US$75m) expansion program to increase the airport’s long-haul capabilities, and a £25m (US$37m) terminal expansion project which was completed earlier this year.

Gordon Dewar, chief executive for Edinburgh Airport, said, “This fantastic World Duty Free store doubling in size is a great example of how we have listened to our passengers and have delivered greater choice to improve the constantly evolving Edinburgh Airport experience.

“The creation of 44 new jobs at this store and the development of the whisky and beauty brands shows that World Duty Free recognizes the ambition that Edinburgh Airport has for greater growth.

“Edinburgh Airport is going from strength to strength – with more airlines and a greater choice of routes and destinations than ever before and we are well on course to make 2015 our busiest year ever.”

Fred Creighton, director of retail operations for World Duty Free, said, “Edinburgh Airport is one of the UK’s most successful and vibrant airports and is an important part of our business. We’ve enjoyed working in close partnership with the airport team to create this new store, which delivers a very different shopping experience, along with a variety of new brands that our customers most want to see.”
