Dubai’s duty free shops remain the busiest duty free outlets in the world, according to figures released this week by the Dubai Duty Free and Generation Research.
Consumers spent a staggering $1.14 billion (€887 million) at Dubai's duty free outlets in 2009 — over 5 percent of money spent at airports around the world.
Dubai’s sales put it ahead of London Heathrow and Seoul Incheon, the world’s second and third largest duty free markets respectively, which both suffered a fall in demand between 2008 and 2009.
Other duty free shopping hotspots include Singapore’s Changi airport and Germany’s Frankfurt-Main International. See the full list at www.bestandmost.com/?sel=annual&type=3&sorting=0
