Don Muang Airport may not be reopened as only three airlines - Nok Air, Thai AirAsia and One-Two-Go - have shown any interest in moving their operations back to the old airport. The number of flights these airlines operate  accounts for only 10 percent of the traffic at the new Suvarnabhumi Airport. All other airlines, including Thailand's flagship carrier Thai Airways, said Thursday following an important meeting that they intend to remain at Suvarnabhumi to help establish the country as an aviation hub.

The Board of Airline Representatives is baulking at recommending its members move back to Don Muang until aviation officials explain how they plan to operate two international airports in Bangkok simultaneously. "BAR is ready to meet with the public sector on how to operate the two airports. But so far, we have not been contacted by any government agencies," said BAR President Brian Sinclair-Thompson. He said the government should be clear about which airlines would be allowed to operate at which airport, about how and when the repairs at Suvarnabhumi would be carried out and completed, and about how the facilities would coordinate connecting flights. The association said it was planning to submit a letter to Airports of Thailand asking for details about its plans for the two airports.
