The meeting of the Airports of Thailand (AOT) Plc executives has resolved to reduce many airport fees for nine months to assist airlines and related businesses negatively affected from the recent domestic political unrest.

As elaborated by AOT Chairperson and Independent Director, Piyapan Champasut, the AOT will reduce landing and taking off fees by 15% while the aircraft parking fee will be reduced by half. Rental fee inside airports as well as services and facilities fees will be cut by 10%.

The fees reduction will be effective for both Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang International Airports, dated back from December 2009 to April 2010 to help airline businesses and airline spaces renters.

Mr Piyapan admitted that the AOT would lose about 2.2 billion THB income for implementing this measure; therefore, the AOT would assign the management to reduce unnecessary expenses and investment to substitute for the lost income.
