BANGKOK – Same-sex couples visiting Thailand this month could be pleasantly surprised, as Bangkok’s main airport has opened up premium lanes to fast-track couples through immigration.

As part of a campaign by the country’s tourism board, Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi, New International Airport, is to contain premium lanes which will allow gay couples to skip queues at immigration.

The campaign, named Amazing Thailand, Amazing Romance, according to Fridae, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, aims to ”enable couples, straight or gay, traveling together to expedite their arrival in Thailand.”

The statement, published by AfterMarriage reads: “Couples who visit the ‘Amazing Thailand, Amazing Romance’ counters can register for the ‘premium lane’ and avoid traffic at immigration….

“Once registered, travelers will be given pink heart-shaped stickers with the ‘Amazing Romance’ logo, which will entitle the holders to use the ‘premium lane’ for a fast track through the immigration process.

“Registrants also will be given key chains with the Thailand tourism mascot, ‘Sook Jai (Happiness),’ to welcome them to Thailand.” – by
