Dufry Group has opened a new duty paid shop at Vitória Airport in Brazil after inking a 10-year contract.

Measuring 350sq m, the walkthrough store is situated in the departures area and stocks core assortments such as perfume & cosmetics, liquor, confectionery, luxury accessories, fashion items, electronics, beverages and groceries.

Chanel, Dior, Veuve Clicquot, Swarovski, Sunglass Hut and Lindt are among the brand mix.

Airport operator Zurich Airport Brasil already works with Dufry at Florianopolis and Belo Horizonte Airports.

Gustavo Fagundes, General Manager, Brazil.

Gustavo Fagundes, Dufry’s General Manager, Brazil said: “We are extremely proud to have been awarded this contract in Vitória.

“Zurich Airport Brasil, a subsidiary of Flughafen Zürich AG, aims to be more than just an airport operator and is focused on connecting with the locations and cultures in which it operates, and on offering the best experience to its passengers in terms of customer service and facilities.

“These are values that Dufry also shares and as the leading global travel experience player, we have used our extensive knowledge and expertise to deliver the best possible shopping experience to the three million plus passengers who visit Vitória airport each year.

“I also take this opportunity to thank the team at Zurich Airport Brasil for the trust they have shown in us.”

Ricardo Gesse, CEO of Zurich Airport Brasil, added: “Dufry’s arrival at the airport raises the bar for Vitória’s commercial mix, as it brings brands and products that were previously not found in the city.”
