Suvarnabhumi airport security tightened during festive season

Monday, December 25th, 2006

Security measures at Suvarnabhumi airport have been stepped up during the Christmas and New Year celebrations as more people are projected to travel during the festive season.

Effective through New Year’s Day, security measures at the airport will be tightened round-the-clock as more airport security, together with army and police personnel, will be posted there to provide security to local and foreign passengers, Chotisak Asapaviriya, president of Airports of Thailand Public Co., Ltd. (AOT).

Travellers should also beware of bogus guides and black-plated (unauthorised) limousines at the airport. They could be a threat because they are not registered with the airport, Mr. Chotisak said.

Don Muang airport, (former Bangkok airport) which closed in late September after 92 years of service, may return as Bangkok’s second airport because Suvarnabhumi airport is now congested.

Deputy Transport Minister Sansern Wongcha-um said passenger and airline inconvenience at Suvarnabhumi airport had prompted airline operators to demand Don Muang airport be reopened, and revive a plan to use both Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang airports to serve Bangkok’s air traffic.

Yesterday, he chaired a meeting with current and former executives of Airports of Thailand (AOT) and representatives of the Civil Aviation Department, low-cost airlines and the Airline Operators Committee.
