Dufry-owned Hudson Group has been awarded six new duty free shops at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) Terminal B in a joint venture with Byrd Retail Group. 

The contract covers 7,500sq ft of expanded space with all six stores due to open by the middle of next year.

Passengers to Newark Dufry Shopping will enjoy premium, duty free fragrances and cosmetics, fashion watches, jewellery, sunglasses, tobacco and fine wines in an environment taking its design cues from New Jersey landmarks such as Elizabeth; the ironbound area of Newark; the boardwalks along more than 100 miles of coastline; and the Garden State’s renowned farmlands.

Hudson already possesses an international airport footprint in New Jersey and New York with operations at Newark Liberty, JFK, La Guardia, Atlantic City and Stewart.

It also serves travellers and commuters in the greater New York and the New Jersey area in the Port Authority Bus Terminal, Grand Central Terminal, New York Penn Station, the United Nations Gift Centre and Empire State Building in New York.

Roger Fordyce, Chief Executive Officer, Hudson Group said: “Hudson is honoured to be part of the continued success at Newark Liberty International Airport as we transform travel retail with new duty free offerings as part of the Newark Dufry store concepts.

“In addition to expanding our strong relationship with our landlord, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, we are excited to deliver a leading collection of duty free shopping options for domestic and international customers traveling through Newark Airport.”
