Suvarnabhumi Archive for December, 2006
Security measures at Suvarnabhumi airport have been stepped up during the Christmas and New Year celebrations as more people are projected to travel during the festive season.
Effective through New Year’s Day, security measures at the airport will be tightened round-the-clock as more airport security, together with army and police personnel, will be posted there to provide security to local and foreign passengers, Chotisak Asapaviriya, president of Airports of Thailand Public Co., Ltd. (AOT).
Travellers should also beware of bogus guides and black-plated (unauthorised) limousines at the airport. They could be a threat because they are not registered with the airport, Mr. Chotisak said.
Deputy Transport Minister Sansern Wongcha-um said passenger and airline inconvenience at Suvarnabhumi airport had prompted airline operators to demand Don Muang airport be reopened, and revive a plan to use both Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang airports to serve Bangkok’s air traffic.
Yesterday, he chaired a meeting with current and former executives of Airports of Thailand (AOT) and representatives of the Civil Aviation Department, low-cost airlines and the Airline Operators Committee.
Having high expectations that large numbers of foreign tourists and local travelers would be traveling by air during the New Year weekend holiday, the management of Suvarnabhumi Airport will offer special traveler’s assistance next week, Somchai Sawasdeepon, general manager of the airport, said Sunday.
The travelers center will be on the seventh floor of the passenger terminal building as airport officials believe that the airport will be more crowded with the greatest number passengers at any given time since it opened commercially September 28, Mr. Somchai said.
