Airports of Thailand to revoke permanent passes of all King Power staff

Thursday, June 7th, 2007

Airports of Thailand (AOT) agreed yesterday to revoke all permanent passes of staff and operators working at Suvarnabhumi airport under King Power International Group and replace them with temporary three month passes. The Airports of Thailand board said the decision was made because it had already nullified the group’s right to use commercial space at the airport.

According to acting Airports of Thailand president Kulya Pakakrong, the board viewed that the permanent passes could be cited to claim that Airports of Thailand still accepted King Power and its subcontractors’ use of commercial space in the airport’s passenger terminal.

Police have vowed to rid Suvarnabhumi airport of unlicensed black-plate taxis and illegal tour guides within 15 days.

Pol Maj-Gen Wut Liptapanlop, deputy chief of Police Region 1, said the new Bangkok airport has been plagued with the problem of black-plate taxis overcharging passengers. It was reported that there are more than 30 groups operating unlicensed black-plate taxis at the airport, each with 10-100 cabs.

If this is allowed to continue, their operations will cause the state to suffer 300 million baht in lost revenue per year, he said.
