However, the airport has already opened to serve passengers for inbound and outbound flights Thursday, although outbound passengers must report at temporary check-in counters at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC) in Bangna on the eastern approaches to Bangkok.

The check-in counters were moved to BITEC to facilitate passengers departing via U-Tapao, the military airport which temporarily replaced Suvarnabhumi, which was shut down by protesters from November 25 to December 3.

AoT will be able to resume full operation of the check-in counter system on Friday at about 11am.

Mr. Serirat, who is also acting president of the Airports of Thailand (AoT) said that a total of 101 flights from a number of airlines had already informed the airport authorities for their aircraft to land and take off at Suvarnabhumi Airport.

He said that the airport invited officials from many agencies including the Department of Civil aviation, the International Civil Aviation Organisation, the International Air Transport Association and the Airport Operation Committee to observe the airport in operation on Friday morning to ensure passenger safety and security.
