Designed to further enhance the passenger experience at Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH), Abu Dhabi Duty Free has launched its website, www.ADDF.ae, to enable travelers to browse and shop online from where ever they are, prior to their arrival at the airport.
The online store, which initially offers around 1000 of the most popular products varying from beauty, fragrances, food and confectionary, to jewelry, sunglasses, watches, souvenirs, and toys, will allow passengers to select their desired items online and pick them up from designated collection points conveniently located inside Abu Dhabi Duty Free. Products are available for guests departing, arriving, or transiting through the airport, and those who are using the exclusive VIP terminal.
Online orders can be made between two weeks and up to four hours before a flight. By using the website passengers will be able to shop efficiently and spend more time enjoying the other facilities on offer at the airport. Abu Dhabi Duty Free is offering a 5% discount on all online orders for first time users.
For passengers who do not yet have a confirmed date of travel they can shop and create a “Wish List”. The “Wish List” is accessible to registered users and will allow them to keep their items for later when their trip is booked.
Duty free shopping at AUH rose 7% in 2015 despite the global slowdown of the retail market. “More than 23 million passengers traveled through Abu Dhabi International Airport last year. The expansion and growth of Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, has ensured that we provide connections to almost every corner of the globe. With our world class retail offerings available at the click of a button, we want to give travelers further reasons to choose to fly to, from, and via AUH,” said Daniel Cappell, Acting Chief Commercial Officer for Abu Dhabi Airports.
The website is part of Abu Dhabi Airports’ constant endeavors to upgrade and enhance its world-class duty free offerings, and make steady strides towards achieving its vision of becoming the world’s leading airports group.
Abu Dhabi International Airport currently serves over 101 destinations in 56 countries.
