AOT revenue 'not impacted' by cancellation of flights from Wuhan

The Wuhan coronavirus would not impact the revenue of Airports of Thailand (AOT), the company president said, adding charter flights would make up for the loss of flights from Wuhan.

 

 

The Wuhan coronavirus has affected the AOT’s operations but it would not affect revenue, AOT president Nitinai Sirismatthakarn said. Passengers from Wuhan city were only around 11,000, which was not much compared to more than 200,000 persons arriving daily at Suvarnabhumi Airport, he said.

 

“The number of passengers was estimated to increase 3 to 5 per cent,” he said. “This year we expect to grow by five per cent, from the Bt64.994 billion we earned in 2019.”

 

“Presently, flights from Wuhan have been cancelled until February 8, and AOT has provided charter flights to substitute for the cancelled flights,” he added.

 

He also said that the AOT's board of directors has issued a policy to lower by 50 per cent the landing fee for those charter flights.

Where are these provided charter flights flying to and from? China? To ferry the people that would normally have flown Thai air?

So, basically they are ferrying in people that may have left Wuhan on charter flights instead - these lunatics will reap what they sow - eventually
