New airport to take local flights from
Sept 15

Caretaker Transport Minister Pongsak Ruktapongpisal yesterday fixed September 15 as the new date for Suvarnabhumi Airport to start operating.
While the new deadline was for domestic flights only, the Transport Ministry was sticking to September 28 as the day for the airport to be inaugurated officially. However Thai AirAsia and Bangkok Airways would not be among the airlines ready to use the airport from September 15.


"We definitely can't move operations there on September 15," a source at Bangkok Airways said. "We have a lot of work to do and we are dealing with a number of foreign travellers … taking connecting flights to many domestic destinations. If we have to do it at … two airports, that would be a big problem. We'll move all our operations to Suvarnabhumi on September 28," the source said.


Tassapon Bijleveld, Thai AirAsia's chief executive officer, said the new deadline was not mandatory and it applied to only those who would be ready. "Thai AirAsia can't move there on September 15 because we haven't yet started … working on our office in Suvarnabhumi, and migration also requires a lot of work," he said. Orient Thai, however, is reportedly ready to move to the new airport to coincide with the new schedule.Apinan Sumanaseni, president of Thai Airways International, endorsed the new date, saying it would provide ample time to test aviation systems before the airport became fully operational on September 28.


"We are working out the details for the flights (between) September 15 and September 28," he said. During that time, most domestic flights would operate out of Suvarnabhumi. However, planes from major tourist cities, including Chiang Mai and Phuket, would use Don Muang International Airport, to ensure that foreign travellers encountered no problems when catching international flights home. Today, THAI will announce its moving plans, outlining the equipment to be transported from Don Muang to Suvarnabhumi and when it would be done.


To prepare for Suvarnabhumi's opening, the Transport Ministry has called a meeting today with all related agencies. Pongsak will also hold detailed talks with executives of Airports of Thailand Plc, which is to operate the new airport. "We're sure that Suvarnabhumi is ready, following successful test flights on July 29," Pongsak said.


"Given the new deadline, only equipment for international flights would be transported to Suvarnabhumi on September 28. Moreover, we will have 14 days to test the airport [before it is officially opened] to [sort out problems]."

Global experts say new airport is ready
ICAO: Suvarnabhumi ok for limited flights

BOONSONG KOSITCHOTETHANA

Suvarnabhumi airport will be able to open on Sept 28, the date targeted by the government, but only for a limited amount of air traffic, according to the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
"ICAO experts' current assessment of the status of operational readiness, based on available information, knowledge and experience of this and other airport projects, is that the new airport can open on Sept 28 for a proportion of air traffic," the specialised United Nations agency said in a statement.

But the airport's readiness for full commercial operations on Sept 28 hinges on the results of further tests. Trials are scheduled to take place up until then, intensifying in scope, activity and content.

The independent statement comes during scepticism over whether Bangkok's 125-billion-baht airport will be up to scratch, in terms of safety and security.

Despite issuing the vote of confidence, the ICAO clarified that it was not responsible for certifying Suvarnabhumi airport; that authority was Thailand's Department of Civil Aviation (DCA), which followed national regulations developed within the ICAO's framework.

The DCA has already issued interim aerodrome certification for Suvarnabhumi after completing an audit of safety and security standards, director-general Chaisak Angkasuwan said.

Mr Chaisak said Suvarnabhumi would only be fully certified by the DCA once it had been running full commercial flights for one or two months, which was routine.

"That's the normal procedure. We don't grant a full certificate until the airport has proved it is able to run effectively," he said. "I do not see why Suvarnabhumi would not be able to get full certification."

According to the ICAO, Suvarnabhumi would not only have to show that it has met all the safety and security standards to receive full certification, but also that it could provide a higher level of service, for passengers for example, than Bangkok International Airport at Don Muang.

Chotisak Asapaviriya, president of the Airports of Thailand Plc (AoT), said the AoT was doing all it could for Suvarnabhumi in terms of function and safety.

Apinan Sumanaseni, president of Thai Airways International, said that the national carrier's test flights to Suvarnabhumi on July 29, along with five other Thai airlines, proved the airport was safe.

"Otherwise we wouldn't have flown in the first place," said Capt Apinan.

Despite this, DCA chief Chaisak said people should not expect Suvarnabhumi to be 100% perfect when it opens.

"There will be teething problems during the opening. There will be rattles here and there but they are manageable," he said, adding that AoT had contingency plans to deal with any problems.

The AoT has worked with ICAO experts since 2003 to plan Suvarnabhumi. They will stay with the authority for a period after the opening to work out any glitches.

The ICAO's experts have been providing advice and assistance for the AoT in terms of passenger terminal operations, airside operations, aviation security, IT and communication systems, baggage handling, engineering and maintenance, and human resources, including training.
