King Power Duty Free Co has proposed a surprisingly high return to Airports of Thailand Plc (AOT) in its bid for the contract to run the duty-free and commercial areas at Don Mueang airport. 

The AOT board is expected to select the company to run the duty-free shops at the old airport today.

According to a source at AOT, King Power Duty Free is offering a minimum return of 63 million baht a month, or 756 million baht a year, to AOT. In comparison, Central Retail Corporation has offered a minimum return of 40.6 million baht a month, Shilla Mall consortium proposed at least 35.2 million baht a month and Siam Future Development Co presented an offer of at least 24.2 million baht every month.
