UAE-based and retail baron Yusuff Ali M A-led Lulu Group has been awarded two retail spaces at Abu Dhabi Midfield Terminal Building (MTB) — construction on which is more than 97% complete —  by Abu Dhabi Airports, fully-owned by Abu Dhabi Development Holding Company (ADDHC).

Abu Dhabi Airports and Lulu Group inked an agreement for a gifting space and a non-food department store covering a total area of 1,833m2. The retail giant will join several brands at the MTB that will include a total retail space of 28,000m2 for duty-free shopping, dining, entertainment and relaxing.

In a statement, Abu Dhabi Airports revealed that Lulu Group will deploy international architects to design its ultra-modern and futuristic stores that will feature products to be exclusively sold at the Lulu outlets at MTB.

Speaking on the agreement, HE Sheikh Mohammad Bin Hamad Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, chairman of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “The Midfield Terminal is one of the region’s most significant aviation infrastructure projects, and it is only fitting that it will now be home to one of the region’s most successful international conglomerates."

Meanwhile, chief executive officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, Bryan Thompson, said: “This deal showcases the inclusive and diverse retail environment present at Abu Dhabi International Airport, and we are confident that the addition of the Lulu brand will contribute toward providing passengers with an enjoyable and memorable experience when arriving, departing or transiting through the airport.”

Commenting on the agreement with Abu Dhabi airports, chairman of Lulu Group, Yusuff Ali M A, said: “We are really excited and proud to have been awarded retail space in the upcoming world-class new Midfield Terminal at Abu Dhabi International Airport.”
