Airport authority to meet residents of Suvarnabhumi airport on noise pollution

The Airports of Thailand (AoT) which manages Bangkok's new international airport plans to hold talks with representatives of local residents currently living in the neighborhood of Suvarnabhumi airport who are being seriously affected by air traffic-related noise pollution.

AoT spokesman Chirmsak Pinthong said the state firm will negotiate with several representatives of residents around Suvarnabhumi airport by the end of this month so that compensation can be offered.

The AoT may respond to the damage caused by noise pollution either by buying the victims' houses or paying for home repairs, he said.

Only those who have lived in the area prior to 2001 will be considered for planned compensation, which is yet to be approved by the cabinet. If approved, all compensation would be provided next month.

Airlines and passengers may be charged an extra fee for causing noise pollution, as was done in Japan and Australia, he said, adding that the AoT is considering collecting the special fee to compensate residents affected by aircraft noise. (TNA)
