Dufry opens first arrival shop at EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg


Since June, 1 2011 Swiss legislation allows arrivals duty-free shops in Switzerland’s airports. The bi-national EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg has also introduced this new service to travelers. As of June, 9 2011 Dufry is offering an arrival duty free shopping opportunity in the Swiss sector of the Airport.

Dufry has implemented an “arrival shop concept” in close cooperation with EuroAirport. Passengers arriving on an international flight and travelling into Switzerland will be able to purchase a selection of tax and duty free goods within the Swiss tax free allowances.


The products that will benefit from tax and duty free status are Liquor (above 15% alcohol) and Sparkling Wine, Tobacco products as well as Perfumes & Cosmetics.


For around 50 years Dufry has been doing business as a retailer at EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg. Currently Dufry operates five shops in the international departure area. The main shop is based on a walk-through multi-store concept with the traditional duty free assortment including watches and jewellery. The other four shops are a fashion boutique, Hudson News convenience store and two gate shops. There is additionally a 6th store in the departure area of the French sector.


EuroAirport Management is pleased to announce the new development which increases the range of passenger services at the Airport.


An extended arrival duty free shop is expected to be inaugurated in September 2011.
