CHIANG RAI -President Nitinai Sirismatthakarn Airports of Thailand Plc (AoT) said the agentcy will upgrade screening systems at Chinag Rai’s airport to enhance airport security standards.

Walk-through metal detectors will be replaced with full body scanners which will be able to spot both metal and non-metallic objects, weapons and explosives, concealed under clothing.

Besides the full body scanners, the current X-ray machines which rely on constant visual supervision to screen carry-on baggage will also be replaced with new detection devices, called Advanced Technology X-ray, which will be able to detect and identify hidden explosive objects.

Mr Nitinai said airport development and expansion plans, designed to cope with an influx of passengers, will be conducted simultaneously with the security upgrade.

A budget of five billion baht will be used to finance the development of Chiang Rai airport which was expected to be finished by 2022 to accommodate up to three million passengers a year, while 15 billion baht will be earmarked for Hat Yai airport which will be completed in 2030.
