Suvarnabhumi Airport is seeing an increase in passengers after the government eased lockdown measures in the fifth phase that allowed domestic travel.

 

 

Wing Commander Suthirawat Suwanawat, general manager of Suvarnabhumi Airport, said that from July 1-15, the airport had seen operation of 3,205 flights (1,604 incoming and 1,601 outgoing) or 214 flights per day on average.

 

“The total number of passengers using the airport was 174,912 (85,758 incoming and 89,154 outgoing), or 11,661 passengers per day on average, which is a big jump from the previous months when the fifth phase of the easing of lockdown had not started yet, he said.

“To ensure the safety of passengers and staff during the Covid-19 situation, Airports of Thailand has employed measures as suggested by the Ministry of Public Health, such as setting up screening checkpoints at all terminals, maintaining social distancing in operation and passenger areas, performing deep-cleaning in public areas and facilities every day, and enforcing the wearing of face masks by staff and passengers,” he added.

Suthirawat also suggested that passengers should download the AOT Airports Application and fill in the information in advance before entering the airport to avoid creating bottlenecks at terminals.

“For inquiry about the airport’s services and flight details, contact AOT Contact Centre 1722, which is available 24 hours a day,” he added.

In an article from last year, there was daily numbers of tourists recorded with 203 000. (int & nat)

 

Long way to go, a new era has begun. In my eyes it will never be the same again.

Now just over 11,000 a day so around 5% of last years figures. Let's call that a big jump for some positive news.

So how are they keeping us safe? Does everyone go into quarantine? 
 

The Nation writes horrible articles.

As pointed out the majority of the traffic is domestic, no quarantine is needed.

International traffic quarantine is needed.... unless you are Egyptian Army !!

yeah when i fly I take no notice of how many flights are coming and going over a 24hr period.

 

an average of 9 flights an hour does seem small but not a number i would be aware of as I don't hang around to count.
