AOT preparing to clarify Suvarnabhumi case to Administrative CourtNovember 23rd, 2007 - 12:21 pm ICT by admin
Bangkok, November 23 (PRD) The Deputy Minister of Transport, Mr. Sansern Wongcha-um (สรรเสริญ วงศ์ชะอุ่ม), has instructed the Airports of Thailand (AOT)’s attorney team to prepare their speeches before they will appear before the Administrative Court on November 26th. The team will explain the AOT’s assistance to the troubled people living around Suvarnabhumi Airport to the court.
Previously, a large number of people living near Suvarnabhumi Airport filed a complaint to the Administrative Court after they felt that the responsible units did not address the Suvarnabhumi Airport’s noise pollution problems properly. Thus, the disturbed residents would like the court to consider prohibiting flights from landing at the airport from 10 PM to 5 AM.
The President of the Airports of Thailand (AOT), AVM Chana Yusathaporn, expresses concern for the residents who lodged a complaint to the court. However, he says the AOT has prepared a contingency plan, if about 150 international flights to Suvarnabhumi Airport have to be halted. He says Don Muang Airport would support those flights, and most of them are from the European region.
