Sunday, June 10th, 2007

Airports of Thailand will launch a four-month program of Thai culture and tradition at the 125-billion-baht Bangkok international airport in an effort to encourage passengers to part with more cash.

The seven-million-baht marketing scheme would make air travellers feel very impressed with Thai culture and tradition, said Narongchai Tanachangsaeng, the airport’s deputy general manager.

Special activities under the theme “Suvarnabhumi: The Beauty Given and the Impression Received” would help increase the state-run company’s revenue. The authority projects 45-46 million passengers will enter Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang airports in 2007.
