Suvarnabhumi Archive for November, 2006
Key government agencies, including the Aviation Department, the Office of Transport and Traffic Policy and Planning and the National Economic and Social Development Board, held another round of talks yesterday to seek a common position on the future of Don Muang.
The talks were called after repeated requests from low-cost airlines that they be allowed to shift their operations back to Don Muang from Suvarnabhumi.
The Airports of Thailand Plc is finding appropriate seats and toilets in the passenger building reserved for monks as requested by the Department of Religious Affairs.
Suvarnabhumi Airport Director-General Somchai Sawasdiphon said AOT had already reserved a special room in the passenger building for high-ranking monks. The company has instructed airport officials to reserve more seats for monks.
The director-general admitted that there are not enough seats in the passenger buildings despite additional 2,000 seats brought from Donmuang Airport. He affirmed that this problem will be resolved as quickly as possible.
Airports of Thailand‘s new board chairman Gen Saprang Kalayanamitr has ordered all airport contracts to be examined. Speaking after a board meeting, he said all contracts could be available for public vetting, depending on legal content.
”The public has the right to learn about the contracts. There is nothing to hide. But we need time to gather clear and complete information to ensure fairness for all parties,” he said.
The board set up three panels to look into complaints about mafia gangs and passenger problems at Suvarnabhumi airport. Any staff member found to be involved in mafia gangs will be punished, he said.
