Passengers on TG flight 663 from Shanghai were given the soap and treated to a performance of Chinese dance.

The welcome was organized by the airport authority in conjunction with police and Samut Prakarn municipal staff including the governor of the province.

Deputy head of Suvarnabhumi airport operations Chadanisa Chamnanwet said they wanted to create a good atmosphere for tourists visiting during Chinese New Year and that the soap was very auspicious as oranges are often given at this time of year.
