CAAT asks Thais not to set off lanterns near airports

The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand has asked for the cooperation of Thais not to set off lanterns, hot air balloons and fireworks near Thai airports. 

The request comes ahead of the Loy Krathong festival that will be celebrated in Thailand next Monday. 

Wing Commander Sutheerawat Suwannawat accepted that the lanterns were an important part of the culture of the country but they could pose a threat to aircraft and aviation. 

He said that anyone who wants to set off lanterns needs to inform the authorities to get permission seven days in advance.
