Following the huge success with the Sanya duty free shop, another duty free shop at Haikou Meilan Airport is soon to open this month after the series of preparatory work has been completed.


Early this November, the State Council has approved the government to set up an independent duty free goods company to import duty free goods and operate duty free shops in Hainan province. The first duty free shop is set to open at Haikou Meilan International Airport


To date, China Duty Free Group has been the sole duty free retailer in Hainan and has been recording incredible demand at its main duty free store in Sanya. 

According to the Hainan Tourism authority, the island has received 23.68 million tourists in the first ten months. The Sanya duty free shop recorded more than 800 million turnover sales between April 20 and November 30 with daily sales reaching 6 million yuan.
