Incheon International Airport's AIRSTAR Avenue (www.iiacairstar.kr) today announced its honor of being chosen as the 'World's Best Duty Free Shop' at 'Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards 2013'.

The 'Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards' hosted by business travel magazine Business Traveller, has awarded AIRSTAR Avenue as the world's top Duty Free shop for three consecutive years since 2011.

This year 'Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards 2013' has executed three months survey worldwide on-and-offline for airport customers starting from April. The results of the survey revealed that AIRSTAR Avenue received the highest support from travelers around the world.

Business Traveller acknowledged that AIRSTAR Avenue deserve the award not only for the superb shopping environment but also for the brand's competitive management to keep pace with 'Korean Wave' by establishing popular Korean brand shops in the Duty Free complex. Especially, diverse attractions organized for customers that were not carried out by Duty Free brands in other countries were especially a strong merit. Also the cultural events and programs carried out by Traditional Korean Culture Experience Center all year long provided enjoyment for foreign travelers from around the world.

As the world's only integrated Duty Free shop brand, AIRSTAR Avenue opened jointly with three other Duty Free brands (Lotte Duty Free, The Shilla Duty Free and Duty Free Korea) in June of 2008 at Incheon International Airport.
