Airports Company South Africa has taken Duty Free Shopping online with a new e-commerce portal, www.dutyfreeshopping.co.za. The online portal allows visitors departing from International Departures at O.R. Tambo International Airport to make Duty Free purchases online and collect their items at the airport on departure.

The airport’s largest duty free retailer, Big Five, is the launch partner for the portal and will be offering customers the chance to make their confectionary, alcohol, perfume and cosmetics purchases online, a minimum of 48 hours before departure. The portal will offer exclusive items like confectionary by Lindt, Ferrero Rocher and Daim, alcoholic beverage options including special edition whiskies, cognacs, and brandies and big-name cosmetics brands in variations, editions, sizes and volumes not available anywhere else in South Africa.

A collection point has been set up at the main Big Five store at O.R. Tambo’s International Departures area to allow customers to quickly and easily collect their pre-packed purchases before jetting off to their international destination.
