Government wants restos, retailers for new airport


THE revamped international airport terminal in Berakas will host dine-in restaurants with international cuisines, fast food outlets and shopping stores, information obtained from the Ministry of Communications show.

The ministry's website posted a list of 14 tenders issued by the department for concessionaires at the airport terminal.

The tenders, closed as of June 25, were for concessionaires at both the new departure and arrival halls.

Proposed establishments for the departure hall include a fine dine-in restaurant serving international cuisine, a restaurant serving Malay and/or oriental cuisine, an international franchise serving food for immediate serving and an international franchise serving premium brewed coffee and espresso-based beverages.

The departure hall will also see one retail outlet selling fashion accessories, clothes, bags and shoes, another selling cosmetics and personal care products, an electronics shop and a bookstore.

There will also be outlets for foreign currency exchange and money transmittal service.

Meanwhile, the arrival hall will see an international fast food restaurant franchise, an international restaurant franchise, a 24-hour, one-stop convenience store with a pharmacy, and a foreign currency exchange outlet.

Tenants at the airport terminal currently include food establishments Delifrance, KFC, Express Fast Food Restaurant, Jollibee and The Coffeebean and Tea Leaf, among others.

The three-year "modernisation" project for the country's international airport will increase the airport's floor space by an additional 18,000 square metres, with 3,000 to 4,000 square metres allocated for tenancy to retailers.

Other improvements in the $150 million project include increased numbers of check-in counters and immigration counters.

With the construction of the new terminal building and car park, the airport's annual passenger capacity is expected to increase from 1.5 million to three million.

The departure and arrival hall is scheduled to be completed by October, in time for the second ASEAN Summit that will be held in the sultanate, according to the Minister of Communications Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Hamzah Pahlawan Dato Seri Seti Hj Abdullah Begawan Mudim Dato Paduka Hj Bakar during a foundation laying ceremony last year.

The expansion project is expected to be fully completed by the end of 2014. Al-Haadi Abu Bakar

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
