Duty-Free Zone at Terminal 4 Kuwait Airport
Ruling retail at Kuwait’s newest airport terminal
Pace was appointed by Dufry for the interior design of the Duty-Free Zone in Kuwait Airport’s newly constructed Terminal 4. The appointment follows Dufry signing a 5 years contract with Incheon International Airport Corporation (IIAC) to operate the duty-free zone in the terminal. The concession zone provides a retail space of 1,563sqm that is operated by World Duty-Free in partnership with That Al Salasil.
The new walkthrough store will be a key retail area in Terminal 4. It offers a wide assortment of products across the core categories of beauty, confectionery and tobacco. The Beauty area is a real focal point, with a large area dedicated to fragrance, skincare and cosmetics, including many regional fragrances popular with travellers in the Middle East.
The design of the concession takes notes from Kuwait culture and local landmarks, including traditions to establish a clear sense of place. The concept includes the use of rhomboid and ‘sadu’ patterns found locally as well as a roof that resembles the country’s iconic dhow ships.
