Two Apple shops open at Dubai International Airport

Apple has opened two concessions at Dubai Duty Free in Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 3.

The two Apple shop ‘programs’ offer the full Apple products range, including the iPhone, iPad, Apple watch, Macbook laptops, Apple TV and Apple accessories, Dubai Duty Free said in a statement on Monday.

The shops occupy prime retail space next to gate B15 & A12 in the airport’s new Concourse B, covering 86 sq m and 70 sq m respectively.

Colm McLoughlin, executive vice-chairman and CEO of Dubai Duty Free, said: “With the Apple shop program in Concourse B being the largest in any travel retail in the world, this is a very exciting development for Dubai Duty Free and our customers.

“They will enjoy the design, layout and products, along with first-class customer experience and product knowledge.”

Since the opening of the new Apple shop concessions Apple has seen an 8 percent rise in sales for Apple products, a figure that is expected to rise further, according to the firm.

“Based on our current sales projections, we expect Apple sales to reach AED220 million ($61 million) this year,” McLoughlin said.
