Airports of Thailand (AOT) plans to develop 1,000 rai of vacant land at Suvarnabhumi Airport into a commercial complex containing a three-star hotel, exhibition hall and shops.

The Bt10-billion site is located in the airport’s northeastern corner, close to the transportation terminal and some petrol stations.

Construction is expected to start early next year on the 300-room hotel and the exhibition hall next to it, said Narongchai Tanadchang-saeng, deputy general manager for business development.

The retail area will consist of local-product shops, restaurants, spa and massage facilities and a food court. A golf course is also on the drawing board.

Karn Thongyai, managing director of Asia Security Management Co, which is part of the Loxley-ICTS consortium, said a reduction in the contract term would be acceptable if it was reasonable.

He said he had to study details from the Airports of Thailand board but the shortened period should start from now, rather than being backdated to when the original contract began last year.
