UK Airports: Impact of Changes to Duty Free and Tax Free Rules

In September 2020, the UK Government announced that from 1st January 2021 (post-Brexit), British passengers travelling to EU countries will be able to take advantage of duty-free shopping, meaning that passengers will be able to buy duty-free alcohol & tobacco products in UK airports, ports, international train stations and on-board ships, trains and planes.
