Following renovation works brought forth by an ever-increasing frequency of travellers, Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) International Airport has launched its spruced-up Duty Free shopping area.
Marking this exciting development were senior officials from the Ras Al Khaimah Government, RAK International Airport and Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA), who participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony and unveiled the remodelled stores.
CEO, RAK International Airport, Sanjay Khanna remarked: “Enhancing the airport to meet the best international standards comes as a natural step due to the significant role we play in creating positive first impressions and experiences amongst tourists. We are focused on supporting the vision of our leaders and are proud to contribute to the ongoing growth of the tourism sector in the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah.”
Those passing through RAK International Airport can make the most of RAK Duty Free’s impressive selection of shopping outlets, including: Jimmy Choo, Hugo Boss, Giorgio Armani, Yves Saint Laurent, Ralph Lauren, Carolina Herrera, Diesel, Roberto Cavalli, Gucci, Channel, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Davidoff, Burberry and Bulgari, as well as top notch confectionary, beverages and cosmetics brands.
The refreshed Duty Free area comes hot on the heels of the announcement regarding TUI Group extending its partnership with RAKTDA, with six flights operating weekly from four hubs in Poland. This development is a result of Ras Al Khaimah’s increasing popularity amongst Polish travellers.
The fast-approaching winter season will also see RAK International Airport welcoming two weekly flights from Russia and a weekly flight from Luxembourg, while RAKTDA also secured the first direct flight from Prague to Ras Al Khaimah last summer, in cooperation with Czech tour operator, Fischer.
RAK International Airport additionally inked a long-term agreement with Saudi-based flynas, to help Indian pilgrims travel to the Kingdom for the 2019 Hajj season.
