Dubai Airports was named as the Airport Authority with the Most Supportive Approach to Travel-Retail at this year’s DFNI Global Awards for Travel-Retail Excellence held in London on Friday evening.
The award was decided based on the votes received from travel executives from across the globe. Dubai Airports faced stiff competition from highly respected airports operators Changi Airport Authority and Hong Kong International airport.
"The award reflects Dubai Airports’ efforts in driving commercial performance through creating successful, growth-oriented partnerships, and in effectively planning commercial spaces to enable continued profitability," said Eugene Barry, EVP Commercial Group at Dubai Airports. “It is also an endorsement of our strategy to partner and work with premium global brands to enhance and reward increased passenger engagement at our airports.”
Dubai Airports owns and manages the operation of both of Dubai’s airports – Dubai International and Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central.
Duty Free News International (DFNI) is part of The Metropolis International Group, the world’s biggest travel-retail publisher.
