The newly opened 84sq m arrivals store is the latest investment from Iraq Duty Free and parent company Financial Links.

The new store offers travellers a ‘new shopping experience on arrival in Basrah’ and features a number of best-selling items such as fragrance and cosmetics, confectionary, liquor and tobacco. The store boasts a new, modern look and a world-class design and succeeds in the brands ambitions to modernise their stores.

The retailer commented: “The newly opened shop and the closure of the old one could not have been achieved without the support of the official government figures of Iraqi Civil Aviation, Basrah Airport management and personnel along with the dedication of the Iraq Duty Free management and staff members.”

Following this opening, Iraq Duty Free intends to open a new major project at the Kirkuk International Airport with a new 140sq m departures store and an 110sq m arrivals store expected to be open by July.
