King Power Duty Free back at Suvarnabhumi Airport

Friday, February 1st, 2008

The Civil Court has ordered Airports of Thailand (AOT) to let King Power International Group resume business at Suvarnabhumi pending a decision on their dispute.

AOT earlier cancelled its contracts with King Power, the operator of duty-free shops and commercial areas at the airport, for alleged irregularities in the contracting process. The firm filed a counter lawsuit with the Civil Court and sought damages of 68 billion baht.

The court’s injunction, issued on Wednesday and released yesterday, said the firm must be allowed to operate until a ruling is made in their dispute.




Samui airport to become second international flight hub

Friday, February 1st, 2008

Bangkok Airways, the country’s largest privately owned carrier, plans to turn Samui Airport into a second international air hub after Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport in the next one or two years.

The airline would launch more direct international flights for medium-haul routes through the small resort airport. The plan falls under Bangkok Airways’ growth plan and the mandate of the Samui Property Fund.

Also in the pipeline are plans to offer direct flights from Samui to Dubai, Shanghai, Bali, and Kuala Lumpur. The airline already has scheduled flights to Hong Kong and Singapore.
