Thailand: Airport Officials Says Cargo Communication System a Complete Failure

Information technology problems and inexperienced staff have resulted in losses for private shippers at the recently opened Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Sources said the troubles encountered at BFS had led many shippers to switch to Thai Airways services instead, resulting in further logjams at the airport.

Since Suvarnabhumi Airport opened on Sept 28, a total of 27,587 outbound manifests have been processed for an average of 4,600 per day, well over the 4,000 per day average recorded at Don Muang.

Inbound traffic, however, has been lighter, with Suvarnabhumi handling a total number of 21,249 import manifests since opening, or 3,558 per day, compared with an average of 4,000 at Don Muang.
