Dubai Duty Free, or DDF, recorded nearly Dh3 billion sales in the first half of the year and it is expected to touch Dh6 billion target by the end of 2012. Sales across all three terminals at Dubai International airport, which is the world’s fourth busiest hub for international traffic, showed upward trend. The airport itself recorded more than 13 per cent growth in passenger in the first five months of the year, compared to same period last year. DDF announced an 11 per cent increase in sales for the first half of the year as summer travel moves into top gear. It reported sales reaching Dhs2.818 billion ($772 million) and placing the operation well on track for annual sales of Dhs6 billion ($1.64 billion). Sales in the second quarter of the year is almost the same DDF announced in April for the first quarter at Dh1.42 billion. “We are .... looking forward to an equally busy second half of the year. Plans are very much in place for the opening of Concourse 3 in early 2013 and we are busy working towards the final fit-out of the new retail area and ensuring our recruitment plans are in line with our expanded retail area which will reach 26,000 square metres with the opening of Concourse 3,” Colm McLoughlin, executive vice chairman, Dubai Duty Free, said in a statement on Thursday.

Sales in Terminals 1 and 3 rose by 11 per cent and 10 per cent respectively, while overall arrival sales rose by 15 per cent.
