Ospree Duty Free by MTRPL, in collaboration with Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Limited (APSEZ), India's largest commercial port operator, has opened duty-free shops at two flagship ports: Mundra and Krishnapatnam.

Mumbai Travel Retail Private Limited (MTRPL) is a JV between Adani Airport Holdings Limited (AAHL) and Flemingo Travel Retail Private Limited (FTRPL). This significant expansion is said to mark a new chapter in enhancing the shopping experience for crew and passengers, promoting tourism, and bolstering India's maritime commerce.

The new Ospree Duty Free stores will feature a wide range of international products and brands

In the first phase, Ospree Duty Free will open shops at six seaports: Mundra and Krishnapatnam (recently launched), followed by Kattupalli and Hazira by the end of June and Dhamra and Gangavaram by the end of July 2024. Offering a wide range of international duty-free goods, including imported liquor, confectionery, perfumes, travel accessories and destination products, these shops will cover a total retail space of 6,500 square feet and cater to over 600 vessels monthly.

Avishek Bambii Das, CEO of Ospree Duty Free, said, “We are thrilled to bring world-class duty-free shopping to India's leading ports. Our partnership with APSEZ allows us to provide exceptional value and convenience to international travelers and crew members.

“This initiative not only enhances the overall port experience but also aligns perfectly with our vision to expand our footprint and offer superior retail offerings. “With state-of-the-art infrastructure and seamless connectivity, these ports are well-equipped to support this expansion.”
