Are you busy making plans for your summer travels? Whether you are cityhopping around Europe, discovering the hidden parts of Asia or living it large in the USA, a must-have in any travel luggage is a great pair of sunglasses. Ray-Ban sunglasses, known for their unique style and fashionable appearance, have continued to gain popularity since their launch over 75 years ago. Many celebrities are already part of the brand’s cult following, including super models, musicians and movie stars. No matter who you are or what your face shape is, what your style is or how old you are, these shades are for everyone.
The classic: the Aviator
The most well-knows pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses is, without a doubt, the Aviator model, designed in the early 1930s. This shape of glasses is popularly called “pilot’s frames”, as they were initially designed for aviation. The frame follows the eye socket and the contours of the face, so pilots are protected against the dangerous glare of sunlight while flying.

In honour of the 8th and final season of Game of Thrones,
HBO is collaborating with Diageo (the company behind e.g. Johnnie Walker,
Guinness and Smirnoff) to create a limited
edition of eight special single malt Scotch whiskies – one for each season.
Every Game of Thrones whisky is matched to each iconic House of Westeros. It is packaged in a
protective case, decorated with the fictional house’s sigil. Archivist Joanne
McKerchar researched the history of each region and distillery, to perfectly
pair the characteristics of each blend and the ethos of the different Houses of
for example, who are expert navigators, find their partner in Talisker, a single malt that is loved
for its maritime character. House Stark,
from the icy North, was paired up with Dalwhinnie,
from the heart of the Scottish Highlands: a whisky that is at its best when enjoyed
chilled or on the rocks.
This unique collection will be available in our stores in
Brussels Airport as of March 1st 2019.
It is a limited edition, so be sure
to pick up a bottle of your favourite Game of Thrones house on your next visit!

During the Christmas season, International Duty Free and Brussels Airport collaborated in a special fundraiser for Make-A-Wish Belgium. The Make-A-Wish foundation helps the dreams of (seriously) ill children come true: by taking them on a special trip, by arranging a meet-and-greet with their idol, by helping them become their dream profession or superhero for a day. No dream is too crazy for Make-A-Wish: whatever these kids dream of, they make it happen. With their magic, they bring unforgettable joy to ill kids’ otherwise challenging lives.
To allow Make-A-Wish to help even more children in 2019, Brussels Airport and International Duty Free joined forces to raise funds for this extraordinary organisation. As Belgian companies with a global reach, they are committed to help ‘close to home’, so they chose Make-A-Wish’s Belgian division.
During their busy Christmas season, shoppers at Brussels Airport were encouraged to buy one of the specially created Christmas baubles, of which the proceeds were entirely donated to the good cause. Volunteers were also present in the airport to explain travelers who Make-A-Wish are and what they do.
Their requests didn’t go unnoticed: the sales of the Christmas baubles gathered 4000€ in proceeds for the good cause! But: the generosity doesn’t stop there. Both Brussels Airport and International Duty Free decided to match the amount collected, and add 4000€ each to the donation, making a grand total of 12000€!
On Monday, January 21st, International Duty Free’s CEO Nicolas Van Brandt and Brussels Airport Company Chief Experience Officer Bart Saverwyns donated the 12000€ check to Make-A-Wish. A Christmas inspired action that will spread joy in the hearts of many ill children in Belgium in 2019!
