Court rules no ban on night flights from Suvarnabhumi airport

December 2nd, 2007 - 9:10 am ICT by admin  

Bangkok, 02 December, 2007 (PRD), Civil courts have denied request by residents in the Suvarnabhumi airport area to suspend flights during the hours of 9pm and 5am, which residents cite are bothersome. The court decision has prompted much outrage by residents but the Airports of Thailand (AoT) company has held firm that it intends to compensate residents in the area.

The court stated that because AoT has signed contracts with international airlines, suspending the flights during the night would cause too many legal issues to arise. The court also stated that AoT in principle had committed no wrong doing.

Nonetheless, AoT has established a committee to seek a compromise between the company and residents in the area and affirm that they will treat the matter justly and with importance.
