Abu Dhabi Duty Free’s (ADDF) ‘Big Ticket’ Dh1.5 million ($0.40 million) raffle draw served up another 15 winners in February, with a mix of nine nationalities among those to claim the prizes.
Pakistani national Charles Kenneth became the latest top-prize winner of Dh1 million after buying his ticket via Abu Dhabi Duty Free’s website - www.addf.ae.
“The wide variety of nationalities among the winners this month is a clear reflection of how, with Etihad Airways’ new destinations and increasing frequencies to and from Abu Dhabi, the airport is welcoming more and more passengers from across the international community,” said general manager, ADDF, Dan Cappell.
Nationals from Palestine, the Netherlands, Jordan, the UK, Lebanon, the Philippines, Pakistan, the US and India were all among the lucky winners with the other 14 prizes (after the Dh1 million prize) ranging from Dh100,000 to Dh5,000.
