Why can't I order an article online that I have seen in your airport shop?

Our online offering may not be identical with the articles that are available at the airport. It is often the case that we offer a bigger selection online for home delivery, for example wines. Conversely, certain articles such as tobacco products and perishable items may not be shipped. Only duty-free articles are available for delivery within Germany.

Can I have orders giftwrapped?

We're sorry, at this time we do not offer a giftwrapping service for home delivery orders.

Why have I received a different article than I ordered?

It can occasionally happen that, for example, wine of a certain vintage is sold out sooner than expected. In cases like this, we deliver the same wine but of the next vintage without consulting you, provided that it is equivalent in terms of the type of wine, price and quality.
