The Airports of Thailand (AoT) has agreed on the terms for a bid to find a new contractor to manage the duty-free air cargo zone at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport. The terms are broadly similar to what AoT had applied when it awarded the original contract, to Thai Airport Ground Services (Tags), according to the Bangkok Post.

AoT recently cancelled its contract with Tags after it ran into financial trouble, including an inability to pay its employees since November, and saw a change in management that resulted in operational failures.

The new handling contract will run for 10 years and the terms will be made available for bidders within next month. The new contractor will succeed temporary service provider Gemini Transport & Communication, brought in to fill the vacuum left by Tags.
