Abu Dhabi Duty Free has announced the launch of its online shop, which will enable travellers to browse and shop, prior to their arrival at the airport.
The online store (www.ADDF.com), will initially offer around 1,000 of the most popular products varying from beauty, fragrances, food and confectionary, to jewelry, sunglasses, watches, souvenirs, and toys.
It will allow passengers to select their desired items online and pick them up from designated collection points located inside Abu Dhabi Duty Free, the company said in a statement.
Products are available for guests departing, arriving, or transiting through the airport, and those who are using the exclusive VIP terminal, it added.
Online orders can be made between two weeks and up to four hours before a flight and Abu Dhabi Duty Free said it is offering a 5 percent discount on all online orders for first time users.
