Through this online shopping portal, travellers now have access to over 20 categories of products such as Beauty, Confectionary, Fashion, Souvenirs, Pens etc. sold across Terminal 3 and Terminal 1 domestic outlets. Products can be searched and chosen from menu listed under terminal, category, sub category or outlet. Travellers can collect their pre-ordered items from respective outlets by making the payment through cash or card.
“With this unique facility in place, one can book product(s) of his choice from 30 days upto 12 hours before his flight in three simple steps – Click-Pick-Fly,” said a release from the airport operator.
Commenting on the development, CEO, DIAL, I Prabhakara Rao said: “We have designed and launched the online shopping portal in a bid to give our valued travellers a new shopping experience at the airport. The online shopping portal is a platform for the smart and savvy travelers to purchase the wide range of products available at the airport without any hassle. This arrangement will benefit passengers in a big way as they will have access to exciting online deals, special offers and also fast track delivery upon reaching the respective outlet at the airport.”
Travellers can expect exciting offers and benefits being extended for their online shopping. These include discount on select products, home delivery of purchased products, and sale of exclusive goods, which are not available in the outer market among others. Besides, DIAL will soon extend the online shopping facility to the international travellers as well.
“The platform creates a niche market for Delhi Airport in the e-commerce space. Today more than 70 per cent of passengers travelling through Delhi Airport use smart phones. We will soon add more travellers’ friendly features and value added services to this first-of-its kind interactive airport shopping portal for travellers,” he added.
The URL of the portal also has been integrated with Delhi Airport website to enhance visibility of the new facility among travellers. On visiting the Delhi Airport portal they see a banner/ link that takes the passengers to the new e-shopping page.
