Yesterday evening Dufry celebrated the opening of its Toulouse Duty Free store as part of Toulouse-Blagnac Airport’s wider inauguration celebrations.

Dufry’s “Best in Class” 1,700m2 store was opened in April 2018, offering passengers a strong “Sense of Place” with a seamless transition from the city to the airport; both in terms of design and also the wide range of local products across categories, including cosmetics, delicacies and wines exclusive to Dufry.

To celebrate the airport’s inauguration, Toulouse Duty Free organised special regional wine, cheese, foie gras, chocolate and whisky tastings served by hostesses to the passengers and surprised customers with acts from the “Urbanballers”.  The football freestylers showed off their tricks to passengers to music in a flashmob format, ending the performance with the reveal of their Toulouse Football Club t-shirts, a nod to the importance Toulouse Duty Free gives to its local heritage.

Pedro Castro, Division CEO for Southern Europe & Africa at Dufry commented, “It’s a pleasure to be here today to celebrate our Toulouse Duty Free joint project with ATB. Nine months in, and we continue to be proud of the new coherent and integrated space we created as part of the passenger journey at this airport. For us it symbolises the best practise we always aim to achieve with our airport partners. Thank you Philippe Crébassa [ATB Chairman of the Board] and all of the ATB team for putting together this fantastic event.”
