Qatar Duty Free hits $1m daily sales marker

09 December 2010

Qatar Duty Free has said it has broken the $1m-barrier for sales in a single day on November 11, marking a new record for a 24-hour period at Doha International Airport, Duty Free News International has reported. The milestone was achieved due to strong passenger growth at the location, Qatar Duty Free senior vice president Keith Hunter said. “New route launches and additional frequencies to existing destinations by Qatar Airways will continue to pave the way for Qatar Duty Free’s expansion. We are also seeing a very healthy increase in passenger spend and a preference to purchase high value luxury goods.”
