Business summary

It operates the following international airports: Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang, Chiang Mai, Hat Yai, Phuket, and Mae Fah Luang Chiang Rai.

Company background

Airports of Thailand, a state-owned airport operator, is 70% controlled by the finance ministry. The company was established in 2002 when the Airports Authority of Thailand was privatized.

It operates six major airports in Thailand. Suvarnabhumi Airport, the new international airport that opened in Bangkok in 2006, just after a coup that toppled the Thaksin Shinawatra government, is run by the company. The airport was seized by anti-government protestors in 2008 and forced to shut down for a week.

Don Mueang International Airport, which opened in 1914, was replaced by Suvarnabhumi, but is now a budget airline hub. Other airports include those at popular tourist destinations such as Phuket and Chiang Mai.

The chairman post at Airports of Thailand is filled by air force officials. Current Chairman Araya Ngampramuan is an Air Chief Marshal. He was named to replace Sita Divari, a squadron leader who was picked by ousted Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, and resigned after the military coup in May 2014. The president's post is currently vacant. Former President Makin Petplai stepped down from his post in September without citing reasons. The company has invited members of the public to apply for the role.
