Airport residents renew balloon threat

An angry meeting of fed-up noise victims around Suvarnabhumi airport on Sunday gave authorities nine days to solve the noise conflict or they will launch balloons to disrupt airliner traffic.

Some 2,000 people gathered at Moo Baan Ruam Rudee in Lad Krabang district of Samut Prakarn province next to Bangkok, aiming to pressure authorities to disburse financial compensation promised to them.

Wearing hats with a picture of balloons and two planes colliding, the residents threatened to release the balloons to cause disruption to air traffic if their calls were not answered.

Officials have asked the residents to drop any such dangerous plans, but the noise victims have held the balloons as a bargaining chip.

Around 100 police officers were dispatched around Suvarnabhumi airport in case the protesters decided to march to the airport during the rally, but no incidents were reported.
