"I am pleased with the new contracts in Mexico and with Grupo Pullmantur. The first confirms our leadership in Mexico and in the Latin America, while the second illustrates our expertise and the strength of our portfolio with several different retail formats and will allow us to further extend our reach in relevant markets through the very interesting travel retail channel of cruise ships, which is one of our strategic growth areas,” commented Julían Díaz, CEO of Dufry.

Grupo Pullmantur is a cruise line headquartered in Madrid, Spain, with more than 15 years of experience. Its main routes include some of the most important regions in terms of tourism: the Mediterranean, the seas of Northern Europe, the Caribbean, the coast of Brazil and the Canary Islands.

Moreover, Dufry has been awarded a concession contract to operate a duty-free shop at Mexico City airport Terminal 2 with 400m2 of retail space. The shop joins Dufry’s operations at the airport which now accounts for close to 30 shops, showcasing all Dufry’s shop concepts: general travel retail shops, brand boutiques, specialized shops and convenience stores.
