Dufry secures three-year confectionery contract at Singapore Changi Airport

By Andrew Pentol |


Andrea Belardini, CEO, Asia Pacific and Middle East, Dufry said the retailer put significant effort into proposing an ‘innovative and unique’ approach to the airport’s confectionery tender.

Dufry Group has secured a new three-year confectionery concession at Singapore Changi Airport to operate four new shops in Terminal 2 departures covering 563 sq m. The shops are expected to open sequentially in March 2020.

The new confectionery shops will be designed under the Sweet Garden concept paying tribute to the gardens. The concept includes various digital elements maximising customer experience. Dufry will also offer customers the benefits of its own global RED loyalty programme and the airport’s iShopChangi reserve and collect platform.

Dufry has been operating brand boutiques at Changi Airport for over 20 years and will add Max Mara, Chloe and Tumi boutiques. The new confectionery contract at Singapore Changi, which welcomes more than 65 million passengers per year, continues the momentum for Dufry in the region following key contract wins at Perth Airport and the Hong Kong MTR train station.


Andrea Belardini, CEO, Asia Pacific and Middle East, Dufry said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the confectionery concession at Changi’s Terminal 2. The retail offer at Changi is one of excellence and we have placed a significant amount of effort and care in proposing an innovative and unique approach to the airport’s confectionery tender. The design of our Sweet Garden concept will connect to the city, paying homage to its famous gardens and blending them to a fun and efficient execution with strong emphasis on activation zones that I am sure will delight travellers.

“We would like to thank Changi for their trust in us and we look forward to be working in close partnership with them to deliver a world-class confectionery experience to travellers at Terminal 2.”
