Thai Airways to compensate Suvarnabhumi for plane’s runway damage

Saturday, July 28th, 2007

Thai Airways International (THAI) has agreed to compensate Suvarnabhumi airport for damage caused to a runway by one of its aircraft earlier this month, Suvarnabhumi airport director Serirat Prasutatnont said yesterday. The aircraft in question, an Airbus A300-600 which arrived from Phuket, caused the damage when it momentarily slid off the runway at Suvarnabhumi airport during heavy rain at around 5.30pm on July 7. But the pilot never reported the incident, Mr Serirat said.

CTX scanners have been fixed & ready for full operation

Saturday, July 21st, 2007

Computer tomography x-ray (CTX) machines at the capital’s Suvarnabhumi airport are fully functional now after breaking down in June due to a computer virus introduced into the computer system server.

The Airports of Thailand (AOT) has implemented measures to close all USB ports connecting to the CTX server so that no alien programme or software can be downloaded into the computer system, Serirat Prasutanont, director of Suvarnabhumi airport said.

GE Invision Inc., an American company which supplied the CTX machines at Suvarnabhumi, is developing anti-virus software to block the computer virus, but it has taken time to install the newly-developed software.

Bonded warehouse area at Suvarnabhumi airport to be expanded

Thursday, July 5th, 2007

The bonded warehouse area at Suvarnabhumi airport will be expanded and separated from the under-utilised customs-free cargo zone, Deputy Transport Minister Sansern Wongcha-um said.

Existing bonded warehouses managed by Thai Airways (THAI) and Bangkok Flight Services would be enlarged to satisfy growing cargo demand.

The expanded areas would be located north and south of the customs-free zone.

Some shippers complain of problems with the duty-free zone because the electronic Air Cargo Community System, which is supposed to track cargo in the air and on the ground, was unable to link properly with the Customs Department’s software systems.
