About Alfarag Duty Free

Since its inception in 2003 by Alfarag Trading PLC, Alfarag Duty Free at Addis Ababa's Bole International Airport has been a trailblazer as the first private duty-free retailer in Ethiopia. This milestone brought together our brand's rich heritage and the exclusive realm of duty-free shopping. Our carefully curated product selection spans from the enticing allure of perfumes and confectionery to the refined elegance of watches and jewelry, catering to the sophisticated tastes of our customers and celebrating the diversity of global brands. Alfarag Duty Free is a symbol of luxury and choice, setting itself apart in the African duty-free sector. Over the years, we have consistently aimed to provide the highest level of service to our customers, continuously enhancing our offerings to ensure access to iconic brands and outstanding shopping experiences. Our dedication to innovation and improvement propels us to create a top-tier duty-free shopping destination that exceeds our customers' expectations. Reflecting this commitment, we are thrilled to announce that ongoing renovations will soon be completed, further elevating your shopping experience with us.

Transforming Alfarag Duty Free: A New Era of Excellence

At Alfarag Duty Free, we are committed to continuous improvement and refuse to be associated with stagnation. Our mission is to transform our duty-free outlets into world-class destinations, making them among the best in the world. We strive to provide our customers with the best service, an exceptional shopping experience, and a wide selection of quality products at competitive prices.

To achieve this, we have embarked on an extensive renovation project for both of our duty-free shops at Bole International Airport. Our aim is to create unique and memorable experiences, drawing inspiration from the warmth and hospitality that define the Ethiopian spirit. Serving as the final touchpoint in a visitor’s journey through Ethiopia, we are thrilled to enhance their travel experience through our revamped stores.

This renovation project marks an inspiring time for our Alfarag team, who are passionate and committed to showcasing Addis Ababa – translated as ‘a new flower.’ The small Alfarag Duty Free shop's renovation was completed in July 2024, and the larger shop is set to be finished by August 2024. Both shops will be inaugurated simultaneously in August 2024, reflecting our dedication to offering a premier duty-free shopping experience that meets and exceeds our customers' expectations.

We look forward to welcoming you to the newly revamped Alfarag Duty Free, where luxury, quality, and exceptional service await.
