Thai Air to move some ops to Bangkok old airport; intl hub to be at Suvarnabhumi
The Thai government made a surprise announcement earlier this week that it will reopen the nearly century-old Don Muang airport within months to ease traffic and allow repairs at the four-month-old Suvarnabhumi.
Air Chief Marshall Chalit Pukbhasuk, the chairman of Thai' Airways' board, said the airline is ready to comply with the two airport plan.
"But we are ready to follow the government's policy. We can split the fleet to serve operations at the two airports. The most important thing is the convenience of our passengers," he said.
Chalit said the airline will also provide assistance to its low-cost subsidiary Nok Air to help it relocate to the old airport.
