Reopen Suvarnabhumi : “It could take days, weeks or even months, only God knows how long”

There will be inevitable delays in bringing Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports back into operation when the anti-government demonstrators eventually disperse.

We cannot say anything for now because we have no idea how much damage has been done,” AoT acting president Serirat Pasutanond said yesterday.

However, it was unlikely the process would be quick, because staff would have to go through complicated and stringent checks, make repairs if needed and get re-certification, he said.

Even the complex IT systems at the two airports will have to be rebooted and calibrated, just like when you start-up a new airport,” he said.

Ground handling equipment and other support facilities which were moved out from Suvarnabhumi to U-tapao airport would also have to be moved back to Suvarnabhumi.

“It could take days, weeks or even months, only God knows how long,” a frustrated Mr Serirat said.

The PAD security detail has not allowed airport or airline workers to enter the area once they left. Most of the surveillance TV cameras at the two airports have also been disabled. (Bangkok Post)

It’s going to be a nightmare…

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
