With the new concession - Dufry adds a new market to its portfolio and DFASS expands their operations in Colombia - both companies further consolidate their strong presence in Latin America.

With Dufry being responsible for the retail activities, the joint venture will operate in total three shops in the departure areas of the North terminal, including two retail stores of 1,300 m2 in the existing area and 880 m2 of new space in the extended area. The stores will offer the traditional core duty-free mix, including various categories such as wine and spirits, perfumes and cosmetics, confectionery, watches, tobacco, fashion and accessories.

The El Dorado International Airport, located in Bogota, the capital of Colombia, is the largest in the country and one of the main airports in Latin America. In 2015 the airport welcomed over 30 million passengers, ranking 3rd in Latin America.

I am pleased to announce our first concession contract in Colombia. With the start in this new country for Dufry, we will consolidate further our presence in Latin America,” said Julían Díaz, CEO of Dufry Group.
