Jeju Free International City Development Center (JDC) has been keen to make the island a duty-free zone since it launched its first duty-free shop at Jeju International Airport in December, 2002. At the airport, domestic travelers can shop at the lounge in the departure area on the 2nd floor after they have gone through security. Purchasers are asked to present their boarding pass and ID. As of July, 2009, an estimated 3,490,000 customers enjoyed its duty-free benefits, which is 7% up compared to the previous year. The duty-free shop, which occupies 490 pyeong of the second floor, includes 170 brands in 15 categories ranging from cosmetics, perfumes, to liquors and accessories. Starting from July, the shop added a “Quick & Joy” booth in front of Gate 3 so that travelers can shop duty free more quickly. The most popular item for shoppers, according to JDC statistics, was found to be red ginseng products, followed by cosmetics, whisky, bag, and watches.
