The company said it witnessed stable growth in most locations and improved performance in specific businesses, driven by Brazilian and Russian travelers.

Following the full integration of World Duty Free, Dufry's earnings before interest and tax (EBITDA) increased 5.6 percent to 154.7 million Swiss francs ($155.38 million). Revenue rose 4.7 percent to 1.71 billion francs.

Dufry's performance improved in "distinct locations" such as South America, Russia and Turkey during the first quarter, Chief Executive Julian Diaz said on Tuesday.

He said the trend continued into the first weeks of the current quarter.
