Award winning jewellery retailer Pure Gold Jewellers recorded an increase of 25% sales at its Abu Dhabi Duty Free operations in the first half of this year compared to the corresponding period in 2011.
According to Karim Merchant, CEO & MD of Pure Gold Jewellers, "We have seen strong year-on-year growth for our Abu Dhabi Duty Free operations since we started operating exclusively at the Duty Free in 2008. This year we have witnessed a substantial 25% increase in the first half compared to last year. With the increase in frequency of flights operating out of and into Abu Dhabi to and from increased destinations and in step with Abu Dhabi's growth as a tourist attraction, we are confident of increased opportunities for our business in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Airports Company."

In the first half of 2012 ADAC recorded several key achievements and milestones, including the "Best Airport in the Middle East Award" at the prestigious 2012 World Airport Awards.
According to Mohammed Al Bulooki- ADAC Chief Commercial Officer, "ADAC is always keen to support its partners and ensure their growth and success. The sales increase reported by Pure GoldJewellers today is another indicator of the healthy and strong growth that Abu Dhabi International Airport is witnessing across all sectors and activities. The partnership between ADAC and Pure Gold reflects positively on passenger spending since its inauguration in 2008, and the company will continue to work closely with all its stakeholders to ensure the delivery of best in class services to its customers."
