Qatar Duty Free (QDF) has been shortlisted for three prestigious awards by the 2018 Frontier Awards, including ‘Airport Retailer of the Year,’ ‘Inflight Retailer of the Year’ and ‘Marketing Campaign of the Year by a Retailer,’ it was announced yesterday.
Now in its 34th year, the Frontier Awards are one of the most prestigious set of accolades of their kind. The awards ceremony will be held on October 3 at the Mandelieu-La Napoule Congress and Exhibition Centre during the Tax Free World Association (TFWA) World Exhibition and Conference in Cannes, France.
The annual global event acknowledges best practice, rewards innovation and celebrates excellence across the global travel retail channel.
“We are delighted to be nominated for three categories at the 2018 Frontier Awards, which set a benchmark for excellence in the industry,” QDF head Thabet Musleh said.
“We constantly seek to provide new and exciting experiences for our passengers and inspire them through unique moments that create memories, and we are proud that this has been recognised with the nomination from the 2018 Frontier Awards this year,” he noted.
“We will continue to push boundaries and ensure our passengers are provided with five-star service, both in flight and at our home and hub at Hamad International Airport (HIA), giving them an experience worth travelling for,” Musleh added.
One of the largest duty free retailers in the world providing travellers with a world-class shopping experience under one roof, QDF boasts more than 90 elegant boutiques and luxury, high-end and mid-range stores and outlets. QDF also hosts more than 30 restaurants and cafes covering an area of 40,000sq m at HIA.
Luxury brands available at HIA include Gucci, Bulgari, Hermes, Giorgio Armani, Hugo Boss, Moncler, Rolex and Harrods. The second-largest duty free operator in the Middle East, QDF was recently awarded ‘Airport Retailer of the Year’ at the DFNI Global Awards 2018.
QDF was also recognised in April at the PAX International Readership Awards, when Qatar Airways won the ‘Best In-Flight Duty Free Programme’ for the Middle East and Africa award, and was acknowledged as an industry leader for its outstanding in-flight duty free service, operated by QDF.
