Airport opens tender for shop space


Local airport operator Macau International Airport Co. Ltd (CAM) has put out a tender for one of the shop spaces located in its Arrival Hall of the passenger terminal building, according to a response to Business Daily enquiries. The tender relates to a ‘complex retail services shop,’ located ‘at landside, south arrival level’ of the passenger terminal, and formerly operated by China Travel Service (Macao) Ltd. Due to the expiration of the contract with the company, the retail shop, which CAM hopes to have offering ‘a combination of retail and/or take-away products’ is now open and accepting submissions until August 4 at noon. The total shop size is 46 square metres, according to the information provided.
This comes as the group continues its North Extension project, aimed at increasing the airport’s passenger handling capacity to ‘around 7.5 million,’ the group notes in previous responses to Business Daily. The airport authority informs that the extension is still ‘expected to be completed and put into operation in the second half of 2017’.
In late May, CAM opened up a Fixed Base Operator (FBO) tender, ‘to enhance the overall quality of business aviation services and create better and enjoyable travel experience to customers,’ encompassing maintenance, storing, passenger handling and aircraft leasing services.
While not divulging how many proposals have been received so far, noting only it’s ‘still under bidding phase’, the deadline for proposals is still fixed for August 9 of this year.
