The opening of a travel retail outlet at Edinburgh Airport has delivered dozens of jobs.

The World Duty Free store is being officially launched today, having created 44 posts.

Edinburgh Airport chief executive Gordon Dewar said: “This fantastic World Duty Free store doubling in size is a great example of how we have listened to our passengers and have delivered greater choice to improve the constantly evolving Edinburgh Airport experience.

“The creation of 44 new jobs at this store and the development of the whisky and beauty brands shows that World Duty Free recognises the ambition that Edinburgh Airport has for greater growth.”

Fred Creighton, director of retail operations for World Duty Free, said: “Edinburgh Airport is one of the UK’s most successful and vibrant airports and is an important part of our business.

“We’ve enjoyed working in close partnership with the airport team to create this new store, which delivers a very different shopping experience, along with a variety of new brands that our customers most want to see.”
