Only a small portion of Suvarnabhumi airport need be closed for repairs and maintenance, leaving most areas operable as normal, said Narongchai Thanadchangsaeng, deputy director of the airport.

Mr Narongchai’s comment followed the suggestion by Adm Bannawit Kengrian, head of the National Legislative Assembly’s committee investigating Suvarnabhumi airport problems, that the airport be closed temporarily for repairs following reports of runway and taxiway cracks.

The committee chairman said only about five or six per cent of the entire three-million-square-metre space of the airport will be closed for repairs while all other areas will open as normal.

Such partial repairs are commonplace at other international airports worldwide, the deputy Suvarnabhumi airport director commented.

Workers employed to repair a portion of the airport will be kept removed from the passenger terminals while airport security measures will be thoroughly enforced to assure safety for passengers as repair and maintenance work proceeds, Mr Narongchai said.

Meanwhile, an Airport of Thailand‘s committee headed by Tortrakul Yommanak and currently investigating the runway cracks is scheduled to give a press conference on progress in the probe on Monday, Feb 12, 2007.
