World Duty Free Group is a leading airport travel retailer, operating major tax and duty free stores in airports worldwide. With a presence in four continents, it has 261 stores in 67 airports, in a total of 16 countries, including the UK, Spain, North and South America and Asia.
World Duty Free Group has grown out of the integration of the previously separate and duty free businesses of Aldeasa and WDF into one single retail business. In February 2006, after winning the bid to run the duty free operations, Aldeasa and its local partner That Es-Salasil opened the duty free shops at Kuwait International Airport that run under the name of Aldeasa That Es-Salasil. That Es-Salasil operates not only the five shops on the airside of Kuwait Inter - national Airport with Aldeasa, but numerous stores throughout the country, some of which are located in prestigious hotels as well as in shopping centres.
Aldeasa WDF is one of the leading travel retailers, operating main tax and duty free stores in airports worldwide. Located after immigration on the departure level at Kuwait International Airport, Aldeasa That Es-Salasil Duty Free offers travellers a wide variety of top branded tax-free products. Following the expansion and make-over of the shop floor, the duty free range now on offer includes a perfume and cosmetics department, a food section, an electronics and accessories shop, two 'Buy Bye' shops- located near the boarding gates and the food court- and a tobacco section. As well as ongoing promotional offers throughout the shops, there is also a luxury boutique to cater for those with a taste for some of the world's most prestigious brands, including Bvlgari, Chopard, Montblanc and Tag Heuer to name just a few. In addition, there is an exclusive shop called 'Pure Gold', where customers will be able to find fine jewellery and other gold pieces.
