Bangkok – King Power has won the bidding to run duty-free shops in three regional airports, marking another victory for the firm which previously won two licenses to operate duty-free shops and the commercial zone at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Airports of Thailand Plc (AoT) unsealed bid envelopes this week for the duty-free operation at airports in Phuket, Chiang Mai and Hat Yai. The three bidders were King Power Duty Free Co that won the auction, followed by a Royal Orchid Hotel (Thailand) Plc joint venture, and a consortium led by Bangkok Airways Plc.

The results of the three bids to run the duty-free concessions will be submitted to the committee in charge of revenue assessment on June 12 before being forwarded to the AoT board for consideration on June 19.
