Dufry extends concession contracts in Brazilian airports

Dufry and GRU Airport signed an agreement to extend its duty-free retail contract at Guarulhos International Airport until 2032. The company also extended its contract with RioGaleão for duty-free to 2023 and for its duty-paid business until 2021 at Tom Jobim International Airport.

Dufry will operate around 2,300 m2 of additional duty-paid retail space, including a Dufry Shopping megastore at Guarulhos International Airport’s Terminal 2, which is the largest airport in South America and welcomed in 2015 a total of 39 million passengers, of which 25 million were domestic passengers.

Located in Rio de Janeiro, the Tom Jobim International Airport is the second largest hub in Brazil and a major getaway for Brazil and South America overall. In 2015, the airport welcomed a total of 17 million passengers, of which 4 million were international passengers. With the expansion of its duty-free space from the original 4,000 m2 by around 7,000 m2, Dufry will now operate close to 11,000 m2 of duty-free retail space at Tom Jobim Airport.

The extension is a great opportunity for Dufry in Brazil and reinforces our position in South America showcasing the strength of our company and our deep knowledge of travel retail, the Brazilian consumers and their preferences and habits,” said Julián Díaz, CEO of Dufry Group.
