Making Suvarnabhumi international airport one of the world’s top 50 by the end of this year and one of the 20 top airports within five years is a dream of Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin.

 

He was speaking about his government’s vision to Transport Minister Suriya Juangroongruangkit, Deputy Transport Minister Manaporn Charoensri and top executives of Airports of Thailand Public Company, as well as executive from several airlines, at Government House on Friday.

 

The prime minister said that his objective is to turn Thailand into the region’s aviation hub and he believes in the country’s potential to achieve that goal, adding that Thailand must first admit that there are problems which need to be addressed before the goal can be achieved.

 

He said that the airports in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong are ranked higher than Suvarnabhumi, even though they have not upgraded in recent years. He warned that, without any action to address the problems, the current 68th ranking of Suvarnabhumi airport may drop further.

Not entirely clear what he means by 'top' in this context. If it simply means more dazed tourists pouring through, that's scarcely reassuring.

 

But if you add some concepts of 'quality' to the mix [measured efficiency in & out, baggage handling & retrieval, customer service, transport to & from ... ] it starts to have some point. But only if you act on them vigorously ...

Focusing on the thriving tourism sector helps avoid the criticism of the exports (80% of GDP) industries which are really in the doldrums right now.

Is this going to be a way for countries under sanctions, such as Russia, to acquire parts and repair to American aircraft they've seized and which cannot be otherwise serviced?
