Abu Dhabi Airports’ retail revenue hits $220m

Abu Dhabi Duty Free retail revenue reached AED809.5m (US$220m) in 2012, up 24 percent on 2011’s figures and marking a new record for Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC).

ADAC operates Abu Dhabi’s five airports, and its latest figures were announced by chief operating officer Mohammed Al Bulooki at the opening of Trinity Forum 2013 on Wednesday.

The figures reflect an increase in spend per passenger, as well as average transaction value during 2012. The increases have been attributed to the attractive combination of the retail mix, a variety of luxury brands and the promotional campaigns of retail operators.

During last year, Abu Dhabi International Airport’s passenger numbers also grew, rising by 18.9 percent, bringing 14.7m passengers through the airport.

The company has also recently signed a five year contract with Duty Free Shoppers, extending the existing five-year relationship to manage and operate Abu Dhabi Duty Free until the end of 2017.
