First ever duty-free store opened at San Diego airport
Media reports recently said that the first ever duty-free store has now been opened at San Diego International Airport. The store was opened on December 10, 2012 and would be operated by Duty Free Americas.
The store is part of the airport’s concession redevelopment program and became possible after the company Duty Free Americas was able to win a seven-year contract in July this year for designing, building and operating the store.
The first ever duty-free store has been opened at San Diego International Airport’s Terminal 2. The terminal caters to airlines offering flights to the UK, Mexico, Japan and Canada.
The duty-free store is spread in an area of 1,249 sq ft and has been opened following the launch of nonstop Japan Airlines flights services between San Diego and Tokyo on December 2, 2012.
Japan Airlines would be operating the flights between the two cities four times every week until March 2, 2013 after which it would become a daily service.
