Airport's opening still on for next Thursday
The new Suvarnabhumi airport's official opening will take place next Thursday as scheduled despite the Thaksin government's downfall, officials said yesterday. In a meeting with the agencies concerned yesterday, transport permanent secretary Wanchai Sarathulthat said that the airport's commercial opening would go ahead as planned.
All airlines have been instructed to relocate their operations from Don Muang airport to Suvarnabhumi and their winter flight schedules have been set, he said.
Suvarnabhumi Airport will start full operation on September 28, 2006 according to the schedule, said Gen Sonthi Boonyaratglin today.
Earlier, there were speculations that the coup might further delay the opening of the new airport.
Airports of Thailand Plc (AOT) officials also confirmed that Suvarnabhumi Airport would start full operation as scheduled of September 28, 2006.

Life seems to be going on pretty much as normal, and none of the airlines' operations has been affected a single bit by the recent political events.
