Welcome to the official Middle East and Africa Duty Free Association (MEADFA) website which offers a glimpse into the duty free industry in the region.

The Middle East & Africa is the fastest growing region within the global duty free industry. A series of expansion programs within the airport sector in the next few years will see the share continue to rise dramatically in the coming decade.

The Middle East Duty Free Association (MEDFA) established in 2001 with the aim of ensuring the continued growth of the duty free business in the Middle East, expanded its representation to Africa and became in 2013 The Middle East and Africa Duty Free Association (MEADFA).

MEADFA builds awareness with the public and the various government entities within the geographical area that it covers. MEADFA also aims to maintain high standards in the region’s industry retail operations.

MEADFA has adopted a code of conduct based on ethics, to be a member of MEADFA is a mark of quality.
