Dufry signs a new agreement with Grupo Pullmantur and opens new shop in Mexico City


Dufry has signed a new agreement with Grupo Pullmantur to operate close to 2,000 square meters of retail space distributed across four ships until 2022. The top travel retailer will operate all gift shops onboard the fleet.

The shops will offer a wide range of products from several different categories such as liquor, tobacco, perfumes, cosmetics, confectionery and watches, as well as jewelry, fashion, accessories and sunglasses, among others.

Grupo Pullmantur is a cruise line headquartered in Madrid, Spain, and has been operating for more than 15 years. 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.

Dufry has been awarded a concession contract to operate a duty-free shop at Mexico City airport Terminal 2 with 400 square meters of retail space. Dufry’s operations at the airport are now made up of close to 30 shops, including travel retail shops, brand boutiques, specialized shops and convenience stores.

Mexico City airport is the busiest airport in Latin America and received 41 million passengers in 2016, of which 14 million international passengers.

Julían Díaz, CEO of Dufry, commented: “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.”
