New Delhi: Delhi Duty-Free Services Pvt Ltd (DDFS) on Friday (October 9) launched its unique online “Click & Collect” facility. This facility allows international passengers (both departure and arrival) to pre-book their choice of products and collect it on the day of their travel.
A joint venture of Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), Aer Rianta International (through subsidiary Yalorvin Limited), and GMR Airports Limited, the DDFS conducted a successful trial over the past few weeks. The “Click & Collect” service has recently been launched at Delhi airport.

Passengers wanting to avail of this facility will first have to register themselves on the DDFS website www.delhidutyfree.co.in. For online shopping of liquor they will have to accept a disclaimer that they are above 25 years of age, as per government policy. Then they can key-in their travel and passport details.
After this, they can select their choice of product from liquors, tobaccos, make up and skin cares, perfumes, confectionary and other travel retail exclusives on DDFS website. They can place their order well ahead of their scheduled travel by making online payment in advance, for which they would be issued a receipt.
