Bangkok Airport, Thai Airways

Thai Airways, Nok Air, One-Two-Go Airlines and Orient Thai Airlines will resume domestic operations at Bangkok's old Don Muang Airport on March 25. Last Sunday Thai moved 29 truckloads of passenger and ground handling equipment back to Don Muang from the new Suvarnabhumi International, where a few gates at a time are being taken out of service to facilitate airfield pavement repairs. Don Muang was closed to scheduled commercial traffic when Suvarnabhumi opened Sept. 28, but the Thai government last month decided to permit some operations at the old facility to take the pressure off the new airport. Several commissions are studying soil and pavement conditions at Suvarnabhumi and will make recommendations to correct underlying problems. Mar 20, 2007
