    Stranded At Suvarnabhumi – “…can’t bake my turkey!”

     

    The Airports of Thailand (AoT) is trying to negotiate with the anti-government protesters to open the way for passengers, left stranded at Suvarnabhumi airport to go out to stay at hotel while the airport remains closed. Passengers stranded since Tuesday night were being evacuated from Suvarnabhumi after anti-government PAD took control of the terminal.


    Buses were provided to transport the passengers to other locations. Airport manager Serirat Prasutanon said the main concern now is to find the way to let trapped tourists and passengers out of the airport. Food and drinking water were distributed to trapped passengers and negotiations are under way. Tourists complained about lack of information and sleepless, after the airport has been seized by the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) demonstrators since Tuesday night. AoT evaluated it would lose about Bt50 million of income for each day the airport is closed. Meanwhile, Kongkrit Hiranyakit, chairman of the Tourism Council of Thailand said about 60,000 tourists arrival at Suvarnabhumi airport daily. The council set up an emergency counter there to help trapped passengers and cooperated with its offices in other provinces to facilitate inbound passengers, whose flights were diverted from Suvarnabhumi airport to other international airports, to find accommodation.
