Expansion of Suvarnabhumi will see Thai airlines return

Three Thai airlines, currently operating out of Don Mueang airport, are preparing to transfer their domestic services back to Suvarnabhumi International Airport.

Airline executives claimed that the initial move to Don Mueang was a result of inadequate resources at Suvarnabhumi.

However, the impending completion of the expansion project at Suvarnabhumi will attract the original defectors to return, according to the Thai News Agency.

National carrier THAI Airways is prepared to return, in support of their single airport policy for the benefit of customers. President Apinan Sumanaseni recognised that the shift of domestic operations for THAI could be completed without a fuss.

Budget carriers Nok Air and Orient Thai are also planning a return.

CEO of Nok Air, Patee Sarasin, acknowledged the willingness to return to Suvarnabhumi, but maintained that the shift is contingent upon improvement of the congestion problems and a commitment to escalating the airport’s flight capacity.

Udom Tantiprasongchai, CEO of Orient Thai, claimed that both Orient Thai and One-Two-Go have no individual preference, but required clarity on the government policy to prevent uncertainty.

He did add that the efficiency and adequate facilities at Suvarnabhumi provide strong incentives for carriers to operate from there.
