Wing Commander Suthirawat Suwanawat, Suvarnabhumi’s general manager, said the airport has set up checkpoints where passengers will be screened as well as a laboratory to conduct Covid-19 tests.
“The lab is equipped to conduct polymerase chain reaction [PCR] tests, which provides up to 95 per cent accurate result within 90 minutes,” he said.
“We have also turned the area near gates D3 and D4 into waiting rooms with restrooms and facilities for passengers waiting for test results. Seats have been kept socially distant, while the room will be regularly cleaned.”
Thai passengers will also have to undergo measures to contain spread of the disease.
