'Demons' to be relocated at airport

Bangkokpost Published: 10/11/2009 at 12:00 AM


Twelve "demon statues" at Suvarnabhumi airport believed to have brought bad luck to shopkeepers will be moved at a cost of one million baht.

The guardian spirit statues will be shifted from the inner zone of the passenger terminal to the check-in area to "improve morale" of people working at the airport.

Airports of Thailand Plc conducted a religious ceremony for the relocation of 12 yaksa in the passenger terminal last night.

Suvarnabhumi director Niran Thiranartsin said the sculptures were modelled on 12 statues at the Grand Palace.

They are regarded as exceptional works of art and are collectively worth 30 million baht but visitors rarely notice them in the inner passenger area of the terminal because the statues are placed in less visible corners and air passengers rushing to claim baggage or going to departure gates do not see them.

Mr Niran said the six-metre-tall statues will be more visible if they stand in the outer part of the passenger terminal where there are check-in rows.

Mr Niran admitted the decision to relocate the figures from the inner part of the passenger terminal had partly resulted from complaints from staff working in the inner zone which has many shops.


The shopkeepers are blaming the "demon statues" for the problems they have faced at the airport, which was seized late last year by demonstrators and supporters of the People's Alliance for Democracy.

An AoT source said the airport had planned to move the statues to stand guard at the gates of the terminal but a Brahmin had warned the statues should not be placed there because they were the models of those at the Grand Palace and represented highly ranked demons.

The AoT decided to move the statues to face a showcase of the Buddha's relics at Gate 5 on the fourth floor.

The relocation of the statues is set between 1am and 5am every night to minimise impact on passenger traffic.

IATA wants single airport for Bangkok

By THE NATION Published on November 14, 2009


The International Air Transport Association is urging the government to operate a single airport for Bangkok and suggests officials build a domestic terminal at Suvarnabhumi.

IATA director-general and chief executive Giovanni Bisignani on November 2 delivered a letter to Transport Minister Sophon Saram advocating a single airport for the capital.


It said a one-airport policy was best for passengers, airlines and the local economy.


"IATA asked that the government reconsider its proposal to operate two commercial airports in Bangkok. The old Don Mueang Airport should be used for general aviation and non-scheduled traffic," Bisignani said yesterday.


The government recently announced it would operate two airports for Bangkok: three-year-old Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Mueang Airport.


Bisignani said Bangkok served as the gateway to Thailand and was a critical transit hub for international and domestic travellers, so it should have all operations in one location.


"Splitting airline operations between two airports will no doubt result in increased passenger inconvenience for travellers flying into one airport and out of the other. Also, two airports will result in a duplication of investment - in airlines, airports and Aerothai [Aeronautical Radio of Thailand, which manages air-traffic control] resources - leading to increased costs for airline and passengers. Both of these factors will have a detrimental effect on the sustainable viability of airline operations in Thailand," he said.


IATA is also aware Suvarnabhumi Airport is operating close to its stated capacity of 45 million passengers.


Rather than diverting resources to Don Mueang, all efforts should be made to optimise and expand Suvarnabhumi's capacity instead, Bisignani said.


"In this regard, IATA urges the government to initiate a new domestic terminal with a capacity of 65 million passengers by 2013. In the interim, all stakeholders need to work together to enhance and ensure initialisation of current facilities," he said.


Bisignani said the present slowdown in aviation traffic provided an added incentive and a window of opportunity for this effort.


The letter said the World Travel and Tourism Council reported travel and tourism last year contributed US$38 billion (Bt1.27 trillion) to gross domestic product and provided 4 million jobs in Thailand.


It said the government should try to maintain its regional leadership in the industry by persuading airlines to remain.


IATA, along with the local Board of Airline Representatives and the Airline Operators Committee of Bangkok, is ready to work with the government in this matter, Bisignani said.

Emirates ups Thai flights

BANGKOK POST Published: 19/11/2009


Emirates Airlines, the Middle East's largest carrier, will introduce a fourth daily service to Bangkok next month.

An Emirates A380 superjumbo is unloaded at Suvarnabhumi Airport, where the airline is adding more capacity on its Bangkok route.
The additional daily flight to Bangkok, which is part of the carrier's two-month Asia-Pacific expansion plan to tap peak travel demand, will begin on Dec 2.

With the fourth flight, the Dubai-based airline will offer the largest capacity between Thailand and the Middle East.

Emirates is already using four high-capacity wide-bodied jets on the route, including the A380 superjumbo that can carry 488 passengers.

The additional flights would support Thailand's economic recovery by increasing tourist arrivals from Dubai and the Middle East, said Richard Jewsbury, senior vice-president for commercial operations for the Far East and Australasia.

The extension of visa fee exemptions for Thailand until March 2010 is expected to generate more tourist traffic, he said.

Cargo will also receive a push, said Mr Jewsbury.

Thai exporters of electronic parts, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and perishables, and importers of automotive and machine parts, medical equipment, chemicals and chilled foods stand to benefit from the additional 161 tonnes of capacity per week per direction on the route, he said.

Emirates insiders said the airline hoped to sustain the fourth Bangkok flight, at least until the end of the current air traffic programme that ends in March.

The airline is also expanding its footprint in Asia-Pacific with a third daily service to Sydney, two additional flights to Manila and one to Jakarta.

A total of 17 flights per week will be added over the four cities, including Bangkok, between December and January, representing a 13% growth in seat capacity. The number of flights throughout the Asia Pacific will increase to 187 flights per week.

The airline more than doubled its profit for the six months through Sept 30 to US$204.9 million, from $77.4 million in the same period a year earlier.[/QUOTE]

Airport traffic resumes gradually Suvarnabhumi back to normal in 5 months

Bangkokpost Published: 19/11/2009 at 12:00 AM


Passenger traffic and aircraft movements through Suvarnabhumi Airport look set to resume a normal growth pattern over the next five months, thanks largely to the end of recession and improvements in Thailand's political scene.

Airlines have booked 125,000 flights through the country's main airport between the end of October and March next year - the aviation industry's winter season - representing a year-on-year increase of 8.52%.

Passengers passing through the three-year-old airport in the period are expected to surge by 11.04% to 19.78 million, according to Airports of Thailand Plc (AoT).

The rise in domestic flights and passenger numbers is projected to significantly outpace the increase in international traffic, although domestic figures are lower than international ones.

International takeoffs and landings are forecast to rise by 3.35% to 90,000, while domestic flights look set to leap 24.56% to 35,000.

A total of 14.91 million international passengers - an increase of 6% - are expected to go through Suvarnabhumi during the winter season, while domestic passenger traffic is expected to grow by 30% to 4.86 million.

Most international passengers will be from East Asia, accounting for 53.33% of the total.

Five more carriers are starting to operate through Suvarnabhumi this winter, raising the number of airlines to 94 from 89 in the summer season.The airport bookings indicate a return to normal for air traffic, which was hit by the seizure of Bangkok's two airports - Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang - toward the end of 2008, as well as by political unrest, the global downturn and the H1N1 flu scare.

International travellers seem to be getting over their nightmarish memory of being stranded between Nov 25 and Dec 4 last year to come back to Thailand during the holiday season, said an industry observer.

In fact, signs of recovery in air traffic through Suvarnabhumi became clear in September with a robust 22.41% rise in passenger numbers to 3.17 million, while combined flight movements rose by 9.74% to 20,636.

September brought the second consecutive monthly recovery in flight traffic figures and volumes began recovering from the contractions of the first seven months of this year.

But the first nine months of this year saw passengers, at 29.09 million, still down 5.08% year-on-year, while aircraft movements slipped by 1.97% to 187,073.

Analysts said the speed of the global recovery and Thailand's ability to improve its image, especially in the eyes of tourists, would determine whether traffic through Suvarnabhumi in 2009 would match 2008's 38.6 million passengers and 245,719 flight movements.
