The Department of Airports will ask the Transport Ministry this week to consider its proposal to cut aviation fees at its 28 airports to ease the burden on airlines and businesses suffering from the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak, said director-general Tawee Gasisam-ang on Monday (March 2).

Among the measures will be a 50 per cent cut in rental fees for business operators in passenger terminals, 50 per cent reduction in landing fees and a 90 per cent cut in parking fees.

The measures will last from March to August this year.

If approved, the plan will be forwarded to the cabinet for consideration.

“Airlines and businesses at the airports have suffered from declining passenger numbers, due mainly to the impact from the Covid-19 coronavirus,” he added.

Earlier, the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand said it would ask the Civil Aviation Board when it meets on March 6 to consider relief measures proposed by some 20 airlines suffering the effects of the virus outbreak.
