Duty Free Philippines opens first supermarket inside airport

MANILA -- Passengers passing through Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 will be treated to a wide selection of products from chocolates, perfumes, apparel, home furnishing, wines and liquors, cigarettes, sporting goods – and even groceries.

Duty Free Philippines (DFP) has opened its first supermarket inside an airport located at the DFP Arrival Mall, South Arrival Lobby, NAIA Terminal 3, making traveling and shopping much easier.

DFP Chief Operating Officer Vicente Pelagio Angala said the supermarket offers a complete section featuring dedicated wall bays and an increased product assortment to better serve travelers with a fully stocked supermarket right at the airport.

“We came up with this idea to raise the bar of the Duty Free pasalubong shopping experience. Instead of buying grocery items abroad that will add up to their baggage fees, they can shop the same brands when they arrive at the airport at a duty-free price,” Angala said.

“Other than keeping yourself from paying unnecessary baggage fees, this also adds convenience. Imagine arriving at the airport after a vacation or working abroad, one can just conveniently grab groceries or do grocery shopping with their family,” he added.

The over 800 square-meter supermarket boasts of a complete section of grocery items for mass consumption such as laundry detergents, shampoo, condiments, canned goods, frozen foods, and snacks.

It also has shelves for cereals, baby care, pasta and noodles, cheese, yogurt, and other items. (Duty Free PR)
