The Transport Ministry is launching a project in major airports across Thailand, aiming to facilitate disabled and elderly passengers.

After the project launching ceremony, Transport Minister Chadchart Sittipunt said that he had told the Airports of Thailand (AOT) to place emphasis on the elderly and passengers who are disabled.

The project will be launched in six major airports across Thailand, including Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang, Mae Fah Luang, Chiang Mai, Hat Yai, and Phuket airports.

The project includes building restrooms for the elderly and those with disabilities, renovating ramps in terminals, setting up sign language translation kiosks, and installing help buttons.

In addition, the airports will also provide wheelchair forklifts when needed.
