Duty free and travel retail - additional information

The global industry of duty free and travel retail is engaged in selling merchandise to international travelers. Sales from duty free shops are tax-free and exempt from excise duties, on the condition that goods are only sold to travelers who will transport them out of the country or an economic zone such as the European Union. While airports account for the bulk of sales worldwide, duty free and travel retail is also accessible at border shops, onboard cruises and ferries in international waters, and onboard aircrafts during international flights. In non-EU Europe, Australasia, the Middle East and Latin America, travelers have the option to purchase duty free goods upon arrival at the airport of destination. This trend has become a key source of revenue for airports. Furthermore, duty free and travel retail generates necessary revenues for travel and tourism industries, as well as the aviation and maritime industries.

Airports accounted for more than 36 percent of travel retail sales share worldwide in 2016. Fragrances and cosmetics were the most popular product category accounting for about 20 percent of global duty free sales.
