Now it is official that Nok Air and 12Go can continue their domestic operations from Don Muang airport and don't have to relocate back to Suvarnabhumi.

As discussed in the below thread, TG will move all their remaining flights from Don Muang back to Suvarnabhumi within this month: http://www.airliners.net/aviation-fo...eneral_aviation/read.main/4292485/

I wonder how long before the gov't decides to give Nok and 12Go some incentive to move. Costs to AOT must be quite high to operate Don Meuang for just a few flights a day.

Good news. Now I hope that Thai AirAsia moves back to Don Mueang and maybe they can reopen one of the old international terminals and run some international flights from there

Unlikely. Thai Air Asia refused to relocate to Don Muang when Thai moved its domestic operations there so why would they now want to move?

I am wondering how 1-2-go are doing. Didn't they shut down for quite a while last year? Are they now back in business? Still with the old MD80s? I could imagine that it must be quite difficult to reopen after this involuntary shutdown, especially now that tourist numbers are down.

I was wondering exactly the same. I did not expect them to restart at all.

Yes they still fly their MD80s on a few domestic routes and also on a daily flight to HKG. Their schedule however shows a 742 by their parent Orient Thai, but when I worked at HKG airport at the end of last year it was an MD80 every day.

I am not sure if Orient Thai still offers charter flights to ICN though (out of BKK and/or HKT).

Thai Air Asia made a statement in the Bangkok Post business section a short while back that said they would be interested in returning the entire operation (including international) to Don Mueang if the government guarranteed they could stay a minimum 5 years
