Dufry has won a new, five-year concession contract to operate the duty free shop at Cayenne – Felix Eboué International Airport in French Guiana, the French over-seas department located in the north of South America. Cayenne airport served 550,000 passengers in 2019.
This concession win further consolidates Dufry’s footprint in Central and South America, which includes the important tourist destination of the Caribbean, says the company.
Dufry will start operations with a 120 sq meter duty free shop on August 1, 2021.
The new Cayenne shop will offer customers a comprehensive assortment of all core duty free categories including perfume and cosmetics, confectionary as well as tobacco, jewelry and travel accessories.
The store will also offer a selection of local food, rums and souvenirs designed to provide a sense of place.
Christophe Ricard, General Manager Dufry France, said “We are proud to add French Guiana and the Cayenne airport operation to our portfolio, as it allows us to further strengthen our footprint in South America as leading international operator. We thank our partners of the Central Administration and Chamber of Commerce of French Guiana for the trust put in Dufry and we are looking forward to develop the Cayenne airport duty-free shop to international standards and offer its travelers an attractive shopping experience.”
