World Duty Free Group's entry into German market next year
Jun '12
The world’s leading travel retailer “World Duty Free Group” (WDFG) will be running the duty free shops at Düsseldorf International Airport as of January 2013. “We want to give this area new stimulus. As an airport, we aim at exerting more influence on the conception of the shop design as well as the according market research and individual adjustment of the assortment to the Düsseldorf market place in future,” explains Thomas Schnalke, the airport managing director in charge of Non-Aviation activities.

“The concept with our new duty free partner takes all of these items into account.”

WDFG is going to take over all of the existing six duty free units at the airport of Düsseldorf. WDFG’s entry into the German market next year also marks the end of a 20-year successful cooperation between the airport of Düsseldorf and Gebr. Heinemann on the duty free sector.

The World Duty Free Group is headquartered in Madrid and belongs to the Autogrill group, one of Italy’s biggest listed companies. WDFG operates over 320 shops, for instance at British airports (e.g. at London Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted), in Spain (e.g. at the airports of Madrid and Barcelona) as well as in South America.
