New airport security measures set to cost passengers 35 baht more for plane tickets

From December this year airline passengers will find themselves paying 35 baht more for airline tickets as the cost of boosting airport security is passed on to the passengers at Thailand’s six major airports.

Six months ago a security lapse at Suvarnabhumi Airport proved that the security systems were outdated when a former police official flew to Tokyo with a gun in his bag. Today the management company has announced that a new passenger processing system will be introduced that is set to speed up the immigration process as well as bring the safety systems in line with international standards. One of the upgrades will see passengers being informed if they are blacklisted by their destination country when they check in.

The 35 baht increase will affect Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Hat Yai and Chiang Rai. Eventually the new measures will be implemented in the other 32 airports across the country.
