Turnover in Latin America went to CHF 1,694.0 million in 2017 versus CHF 1,531.1 million one year earlier. Organic growth in the division was 10.8%. South American countries, such as Brazil, Uruguay, Chile and Peru performed well. The same applies to the Caribbean operations with Dominican Republic being the leader in this area. Dufry Cruise Services also posted strong growth driven by the start of operations on a number of new ships.

The positive market conditions seen throughout 2017 have continued in the first months of 2018 in all divisions with similar organic growth performance as in previous quarters, thus providing a good base for the start into the new reporting year,” said Julián Díaz, CEO of Dufry Group.
