Dufry will operate the 120sq m duty free shop from 1 August at the airport,which served 550,000 passengers in 2019.

The new shop will offer customers an assortment of all duty free core categories such as perfume and cosmetics, confectionery, tobacco, jewellery and travel accessories.

Christophe Ricard, General Manager Dufry France said: “We are proud to add French Guiana and the Cayenne Airport operation to our portfolio, as it allows us to further strengthen our footprint in South America as leading international operator.

“We thank our partners of the Central Administration and Chamber of Commerce of French Guiana for the trust put in Dufry and we are looking forward to developing the Cayenne Airport duty-free shop to international standards and offer its travellers an attractive shopping experience.”
