In 2013, Lotte Duty Free was named the preferred bidder for the contract, but the contract offer was retracted after DFS Group protested against the tender. All subsequent protests were ultimately dismissed and the retailer took over the concession on schedule last July.

Lotte Duty Free CEO Hong-Kyun Lee said: "This is a very proud day for Lotte Duty Free, for everyone involved in helping us deliver on our vision and, most importantly, for the island of Guam. The retail offering we unveiled today stands alongside any airport in the world, as an exceptional shopping experience. It’s a fantastic impression of Guam, generating significantly increased revenues for the airport, and creating opportunities for the people and businesses of Guam. It showcases premium locally-made products alongside Lotte Duty Free’s luxury global brand lineup."
