Celebrate Lunar New Year with unique gifts at International Duty Free!

Lunar New Year is the most important holiday in Asia and is celebrated all over the world. From February 4th until February 19th 2019, the world celebrates Lunar New Year during the ‘Spring Festival’, the most traditional festival in the world!

The Lunar New Year, celebrated in different Asian countries like Japan, Korea and China, has a symbolic zodiac sign every year. There are 12 zodiac signs in total, and this year, the Year of the Pig is celebrated. The Pig represents wealth, kindness, and generosity, and people born under this sign are told to have the same characteristics. Lunar New Year is traditionally celebrated with the colours red and gold, symbolic of good fortune, good luck and happiness.

International Duty Free-make a wish
21Jan 2019

A 12000 € donation for Make-A-Wish, thanks to International Duty Free and Brussels Airport!

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!

International Duty Free-Carolina Herrera-Good Girl
13Nov 2018

Carolina Herrera’s fragrance GOOD GIRL exclusively in stores at Brussels Airport!

For more than 30 years, Carolina Herrera has created fashion and fragrances defined by the effortless elegance and sophistication that epitomizes New York style. This month, we present Carolina Herrera’s GOOD GIRL, an ultra feminine fragrance that embraces the modern women of today: a fragrance that captures and celebrates her glorious, high-spirited duality.

The sweet, alluring qualities of jasmine give GOOD GIRL its brightness and femininity. The darker side of GOOD GIRL is created with richly fragrant cocoa and intoxicating Tonka. Almond and coffee bring GOOD GIRL its immediate vibrancy. Every part of the fragrance is a reflection of the Herrera woman: even the eye-catching bottle, a midnight blue ultra-high stiletto and gold-heel, includes a complex internal pressure system to diffuse the scent. Both fragrance and bottle express the sensual, confident, feminine and powerful nature of the woman who wears GOOD GIRL.

Discover GOOD GIRL in a travel retail exclusive at the IDF stores in Brussels Airport. Discover the fragrance during your next visit!
