Suvarnabhumi Archive for May, 2007
Starting June 1, 2007, The Transport Ministry’s Aviation Department will enforce its rule requiring air passengers to display liquids, gels and sprays in transparent containers before boarding flights, Director-General Chaisak Angkasuwan said Saturday.
Mr. Chaisak said he had met representatives of Airports of Thailand (AOT), airlines and King Power, contracted for duty free and other business at Suvarnabhumi airport, regarding the measure, which will be enforced both on domestic and international routes beginning June 1.
Enforcement will follow International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) procedures already used by many airlines worldwide after Britain last year disclosed that terrorists planned to destroy planes and passengers with liquid bombs carried aboard aircraft.
Thailand’s Royal Irrigation Department (RID) will dredge 17 canals to increase the efficiency of drainage systems around Suvarnabhumi Airport, announcing its confidence that the showcase airport won’t be affected by floods this year.

Royal Irrigation Department director confidents that there will not be high water problems at or around the new international airport, which is quite important to the economy, and that waterflow and drainage conditions will be closely monitored.
The airport management committee, chaired by Interim Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont, yesterday agreed to improve compensation for property owners affected by aircraft noise at Suvarnabhumi airport. Deputy Transport Minister Sansern Wongcha-um said the committee agreed with a proposal by Airports of Thailand (AOT) to exclude depreciation costs from expropriation compensation and add marketing margins of 10-20% for non-house buildings and 20-30% for affected houses. The measures would raise compensation by 22%.
