Dubai Duty Free (DDF) will offer a 20% discount across a range of products to celebrate UAE National Day (2 December).

Running from 28-29 November at Dubai International and Al Maktoum International Airports, the promotion covers perfumes & cosmetics, watches, costume jewellery, precious jewellery, handbags, luggage, sunglasses, ladies and men’s fashion, confectionery and delicatessen items.

The travel retailer recently hosted a programme of activities to mark what will be the UAE’s 48th National Day.

The event gathered Emiratis and expatriate colleagues of DDF at the grounds of the company’s head office in Umm Ramool.

DDF executives and employees witnessed an outdoor Emirati exhibition that illuminated the region’s traditions and history, including calligraphy, henna decoration, doll making, pottery painting and live cooking, prior to a cake-cutting ceremony.

Colm McLoughlin, Executive Vice Chairman and CEO, DDF said: “This special day in the UAE reflects its unity, strength and the nation’s rich culture. Our annual participation in the national day highlights our commitment to continuously supporting the UAE’s vision and plans, as well as to promote the spirit of camaraderie between our Emirati and expat employees.”
