BAHRAIN. Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) is seeking partners to manage the pharmacy units and the convenience, tobacco and news (CTN) concession in its new terminal.

The planned Passenger Terminal Building (PTB) is being built as part of the US$1.1 billion Airport Modernisation Programme (AMP). The terminal is scheduled to open next year.

The pharmacy tender consists of one package covering two units in 130sq m of space. The CTN tender consists of four packages, housing one unit each, with a total area of 548sq m. The tenders will grant non-exclusive concessions to business partners to design, fit out, finance, develop, operate, maintain and manage the concessions in both landside and airside locations.

Bahrain Airport Company aims to transform the traveller experience once it opens the new terminal

BAC Chief Commercial Officer Ayman Zainal said: “The AMP is one of the most important strategic projects for the Kingdom of Bahrain. It will ensure that the airport serves all economic sectors, while continuing to be a gateway for Bahrain to the rest of the world. These outlets will cater to passengers’ needs for pharmaceutical and convenience products in more than one area of the airport, which will mark another step towards achieving our goal of transforming BIA into a modern and commercial travel hub for today’s passengers.”
