Commenting on the new association, Julián Díaz, Dufry’s chief executive officer, said, “Dufry is very proud that GAP has entrusted us with opening its first store in Spain, the worldwide largest in an airport. It is apleasure for us to work with one of the world’s major fashion brands.” Stefan Laban, senior vice-president of Gap International, also spoke about the collaboration, “We are thrilled to bring Gap’s casual American style to more customers in Europe. Given the high affinity and brand awareness towards Gap with the Spanish consumers, we felt partnering with Dufry to create branded shopping experiences in the Malaga airport, as well as airports across Spain, is a terrific next step in our global expansion plans.”
Dufry operates more than 1700 stores located in airports, train stations, cruise ships, seaports and other tourist spots in over 60 countries. The company is listed at the Swiss and Brazilian stock exchanges and has over 21,000 employees worldwide.

Dufry has plans to open another four Gap stores in 2015, at Spain’s Ibiza, Gran Canaria, Tenerife Norte and Tenerife Sur airports. During 2014, Málaga Airport received nearly 14 million travelers, coming mostly from Spain and other European countries such as the United Kingdom, Germany, France and the Netherlands.
