Warsaw Chopin Airport in Poland has introduced new rules governing the activity of the duty-free zone, which allows shops in the Schengen Area to sell duty-free goods to arriving passengers.
Warsaw Chopin is the first airport in Poland to make the change following information received from the Ministry of Finance to include arriving travelers in the sale of duty-free goods, providing they have a valid boarding pass or airline ticket. A printed document or its mobile version must contain the passenger’s full name, date of departure, boarding pass number, flight number and destination.
Michał Kaczmarzyk, director of Warsaw Chopin Airport, said, “The process of amending the rules took less than two months and was very smooth. We owe it to the support and help from the Ministry of Finance, the Customs Chamber and the Customs Office.”
