The airportís managing board reversed the decision made in August to terminate the contract with the retailer

The managing board of Belgrade Nikola Tesla airport has announced it has reversed the decision made on August 28 to terminate the lease agreement with retailer Dufry Group. According to the airport, Dufry has paid RSD33m ($618,129) for “taking over uncleared goods”, as well as €1.5m ($2.16m) for “investments in the business premises at Belgrade Nikola Tesla airport”. Through these payments Dufry has fulfilled the airport’s managing board’s demands within the termination notice period, the statement said.


Dufry opened its main 550sq m (5,920sq ft) duty-free shop at Belgrade airport in December 2006, followed by three convenience landside stores and a 150sq m (1,614sq ft) airside watches and accessories outlet.
