The National Airports Corporation (NAC) of Papua New Guinea has released five commercial tenders for space at Port Morseby Airport, as the country’s main international hub embarks on a development programme aimed at improving its service offer.

The airport said it hopes the project will result in “an ideal strategy that increases [retail] revenue and density, at the same time improving the service offer rendered to the travelling passengers.”

The five tender packages cover 16 retail spaces and include a duty free package comprising a 332sq m Departures walk-through store on the first floor of the terminal and a 89.69sq m Arrivals store on the ground floor.

Two food & beverage packages are being tendered, one offering three spaces including a 103sq m Papua New Guinea Coffee Hub – reflecting the country’s strong coffee heritage – and the other for just one 140.71sq m bar concept in the Departures area.

A retail & convenience concession comprises six outlets – including a ‘street market’ style store for local products, another arts & crafts shop and a convenience store – while foreign exchange and car rental concessions offer two outlets and six booths respectively.

The duty free concession will run for five years, with all others operating under two-year contracts. The airport is aiming for new concessions to start trading from May 2015.

Proposals are due by 17:00 (local time) on 8 August. A pre-proposal workshop will be held on 28 July.
