Manila, Philippines – 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 travelling and shopping much easier.
The over 800 square-meter supermarket boasts 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.
According to DFP Chief Operating Officer (COO) Vicente Pelagio A. Angala, the supermarket offers a complete section featuring dedicated wall bays and an increased product assortment to serve the travelers better 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,” said Angala.
“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.
