Suvarnabhumi International Airport to resume full service on 5 December 2008

Thursday, December 4th, 2008

Customs Department satisfied overall performance

Saturday, September 30th, 2006

Customs Department officials are satisfied with the overall performance of Suvarnabhumi Airport on its first two days of full operations, despite minor issues in cargo handling.

“There were no problems with passenger service, but some import-export entrepreneurs were inconvenienced when denied access to certain areas under the authority of multiple agencies. The overlap was caused by a lack of communication,” said Sathit Limpongpan, the director-general of the department.

“It was not serious, though. The department will hold a talk among the agencies involved as soon as possible and everything will be completely resolved.”

Fingerprint identification equipment to be installed at Suvarnabhumi Airport

Thursday, September 28th, 2006

The Immigration Bureau plans to install fingerprint identification equipment at Suvarnabhumi Airport within the next two months.

“Immigration procedures at Suvarnabhumi are very fast. It takes only 20 seconds for the average passenger. It will be even faster when we finish installing the fingerprint identification units,” said Police Lieutenant General Suwat Tumrongsriskul, Immigration Bureau Commissioner, who inspected the new airport Friday during its first day of full commercial service.

In addition to fingerprint scanning equipment, immigration police plan to install additional electronic passport control technology, which they hope will also be in place before the end of November.
