In late May we posted a report titled "Apple's Tim Cook Surprises Apple fans at the Apple Store in Dubai on Saturday." This week two business publications in Dubai reported that Apple has opened two concessions at Dubai Duty Free in Dubai International Airport's Terminal 3.
One of the reports noted that "The two Apple shop 'programs' offer the full Apple products range, including the iPhone, iPad, Apple watch, Macbook laptops, Apple TV and Apple accessories, Dubai Duty Free said in a statement on Monday.
The shops occupy prime retail space next to gate B15 & A12 in the airport's new Concourse B, covering 86 sq m and 70 sq m respectively.
Colm McLoughlin, executive vice-chairman and CEO of Dubai Duty Free, said: 'With the Apple shop program in Concourse B being the largest in any travel retail in the world, this is a very exciting development for Dubai Duty Free and our customers. They will enjoy the design, layout and products, along with first-class customer experience and product knowledge."'
McLoughlin added that "Based on our current sales projections, we expect Apple sales to reach US$61 million this year."
