The store is scheduled to open towards the end of 2023, in Terminal A of the airport.

The store will house a curated selection of toys and games from major brands.
WHP Global chairman and CEO Yehuda Shmidman said: “We are thrilled to partner with Duty Free Americas to introduce the first-ever Toys “R” Us airport store, an exciting new concept that we believe could roll out in airports around the world.”
