Airports of Thailand (AOT) should seek temporary protection from a court to take immediate action to contain the damage to runways and taxiways at Suvarnabhumi airport, pending the pinpointing of those responsible for the problems, a veteran engineer said yesterday.
Suebsak Promboon, director of the Engineering Institute of Thailand, said court protection would allow AOT to make immediate repairs without damaging its rights under the contract that governs the construction of the runways and taxiways.
If new board of AOT, who assigned by the military government, waits for arbitration to find those responsible for the cracks on the runways and taxiways, it would be too late for it to prevent further damage at the new Bangkok Airport, he said.
Airports of Thailand (AOT) is set to accelerate and resolve all problems which have arisen in Thailand’s flagship Suvarnabhumi Airport and to promote it as the â€œSmile Airportâ€ for the region in the coming years.
Serirat Prasutanont, Suvarnabhumi Airport director, revealed that AOT plans to develop the airport and step up efforts to cope with problems the airport is facing such as insufficient toilets, taxiway and runway cracks, and inefficient internal services, to get the showcase facility back on track to ensure that both travellers and air carriers will be given more convenience.
Bumrungrad International Hospital last week opened a new airport service centre at Suvarnabhumi, while Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital is scheduled to open the first medical centre to be run by a private hospital at the airport next week.
Centrally located in section C of the arrival hall and next to the Tourism Authority of Thailand counter at the new Bangkok Airport, the Bumrungrad Airport Service Centre provides mainly information and ground support services for its inbound patients in a stylish, business-class lounge setting. The centre complements a long list of services the hospital currently offers international patients, which include on-site serviced apartments, visa extensions and interpreters.
