Tourism Authority of Thailand provides assistance to stranded passengers

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

Due to the suspension of services at Suvarnabhumi International Airport, all inbound and outbound flights were cancelled since 04.00 hrs. during 25-26 November 2008, causing inconvenience to passengers.

The stranded passengers who fly with Thai Airways have been accommodated by Thai Airways International. The Ministry of Tourism and Sports in cooperation with the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), Tourism Council of Thailand (TCT), Association of Thai Travel Agents (ATTA) and Thai Hotels Association (THA) transferred the remaining stranded passengers to the following hotels:

1. Imperial Queen’s Park
Address: 199 Sukhumvit Soi 22, Sukhumvit Road
Khlongtan, Khlongton District, Bangkok 10110
Tel: 02-267-9000, 02-261-9300

In flight liquids to be strictly enforced on June 1, 2007

Sunday, May 27th, 2007

Starting June 1, 2007, The Transport Ministry’s Aviation Department will enforce its rule requiring air passengers to display liquids, gels and sprays in transparent containers before boarding flights, Director-General Chaisak Angkasuwan said Saturday.

Mr. Chaisak said he had met representatives of Airports of Thailand (AOT), airlines and King Power, contracted for duty free and other business at Suvarnabhumi airport, regarding the measure, which will be enforced both on domestic and international routes beginning June 1.

Enforcement will follow International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) procedures already used by many airlines worldwide after Britain last year disclosed that terrorists planned to destroy planes and passengers with liquid bombs carried aboard aircraft.

Restrictions will be enforced on liquids, aerosols and gels in hand-carried luggage on all commercial flights

Thursday, April 19th, 2007

Thailand will start enforcing new restrictions on liquids, aerosols and gels in hand-carried luggage on all commercial flights departing from airports nationwide in the next few weeks.

Thailand is the latest Asian country to begin applying the security measures suggested by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) following the discovery of a terrorist plot in Britain last year.

Major Asian air hubs such as South Korea’s Incheon International Airport and Hong Kong International Airport implemented the measures earlier this year, while Singapore Changi Airport is due to apply them from May 8.
