More than 900 illegal taxi drivers and tour guides were arrested at Suvarnabhumi airport in June and July as the airport continues attempting to ensure passenger safety. Suvarnabhumi airport director Serirat Prasutanont said the crackdown had brought illegal taxi and guide activities down by 70 percent to 80 percent. Serirat admitted such illegal operations had damaged the country's image because some customers were over-charged, assaulted and robbed. Serirat added that any taxi drivers found to have overcharged a passenger would be prohibited from picking up passengers at the airport for at least 10 days.
