Minor International (MINT) is awaiting a response from the Airports of Thailand (AOT)’s response to its letter requesting the AOT to reconsider its disqualification from the bidding for the management and operation of commercial activities within the passenger terminal at Suvarnabhumi Airport.





MINT submitted its bid to the AOT last Wednesday but was rejected on the basis that it did not have adequate experience in the food, retail and beverage businesses in Thailand, said Chaiyapat Paitoon, Deputy Corporate CFO and Strategic Planning of MINT.

He added that MINT strongly disagrees with AOT’s position and its rejection of MINT’s bid submission. The company has therefore sent a letter to the AOT asking it to reconsider and expects a response in the next day or so.
