Abu Dhabi Duty Free (ADDF)
Established in 1984 with just five shops, Abu Dhabi Duty Free (ADDF) has grown into a multi-award winning travel retail organization and as the second-largest operation in the Middle East maintains the highest average spend per customer of all Middle East Duty Free operations.
From the beginning of 2008, additional retail space will be added at Abu Dhabi International Airport with the new Terminal 3 development - a dedicated terminal for Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates. With the growing number of flights and routes coming through Abu Dhabi's airports in the short to medium term, ADDF is set to become one of the fastest growing travel retail environments over the next decade.
ADDF services extend across the Emirate with operations at Abu Dhabi International Airport, Al Ain International Airport, and the Ghweifat land-border outlet between the UAE and KSA.
