Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in Texas, USA, has partnered with TRG Duty Free, a consortium of local businesses and duty free operators, to open and operate six new retail outlets in Terminal D.
The new duty free concessions will occupy approximately 20,000ft² of terminal space, and will include a flagship store with 13,000ft² split across two levels. The shops will feature renowned international retail brands such as Ferragamo, Gucci, Dior, Chanel, Lancôme and Burberry, and will sell a variety of goods including clothing, cosmetics, electronics, leather goods, jewelry, handbags, and wine and spirits.
Sean Donohue, CEO at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, said, “Terminal D hosts more than seven million international travelers each year, and as our international profile grows those customers look for world-class experiences and amenities. The new duty-free experience at the airport will transform Terminal D and bring our customers an unparalleled level of luxury and service with high-end brands, VIP concierge services, cutting-edge technology and local flair.”
Ken Buchanan, executive vice president of revenue management at Dallas Fort/Worth Airport, said, “When looking for a duty-free retailer, we asked for a blend of international couture, state-of-the-art technology and luxurious services – all while capturing the spirit and beauty of Texas.
“TRG’s winning proposal delivered with a concept that we know will surprise and delight our passengers. We’re excited to know their vision will soon come to life in Terminal D.”
