Suvarnabhumi to introduce body scanners


Published on Sep 7, 2011

The Airports of Thailand (AoT) has invested 100 million baht to improve security screen areas at Suvarnabhumi International Airport.

Eight full body scanners will be implemented for maximum security checks, according to AoT senior executive vice-president and acting president Nirandra Theeranartsin.

"We will relocate the security checkpoint zone from behind the immigration service areas to a new mezzanine floor, where passengers must take an escalator up to walk through the scanners and then take another escalator down to the immigration areas," he said.

The mezzanine used to be a lounge covering 4,500m2. He said the relocation would free up the existing security check area for other passenger-service purposes.
