Delhi Duty Free: Shopper's Delight

Airports are the connecting points for  travellers. But each airport has a character of its own; some are intimidating, some confusing and some quite the opposite – comfortable to glide through. Delhi Duty Free Shopping or DDFS as it is popularly known is a sheer shopper’s delight. I am told it is set to grow bigger than ever and shoppers are really looking forward to it.

Exclusive duty free store in India

With exclusive stores like Pandora where you can customise your jewellery, Victoria’s Secret, wonderful scents at Armani Prive and cigars from the best brands around the world DDF is the hub for shoppers. I even tried the quick make over at Mac, just in case you are short of time and have to attend a meeting/ party directly after your flight.

DDFS is a brave new kid competing with the likes of Singpore and Dubai in this region. It provides customers with an Indian yet international sense of place and culture. The experience informs, inspires and delights passengers giving an opportunity to try, taste, learn and experience. With more than 2 lakh FB friends it is surely making the right moves.

  1. I remember being really nervous to fly into Delhi airport. I thought it was going to be so foreign and I wouldn’t be able to navigate it at all. Turns out, this is probably my favorite airport I’ve ever been in! I found it to be WAY better than London-Heathrow. And all the people were so friendly!
