    Thailand took measures to reduce congestion at the main Suvarnabhumi international airport outside Bangkok, Thai News Agency reported on Friday.

    Civil Aviation Department (CAD) Director-General Voradech Hanprasert said that representatives from the department, Aeronautical Radio of Thailand, Airports of Thailand (AoT), and other concerned parties met to address the issue.

    The short-term measures to ease the congestion include more staffing at airport immigration arrival and departure channels, and increasing air traffic control flights from 55 to 68 per hour starting Friday.

    Moreover, incentives to attract airlines to use the airport during 2-5 am should be implemented to ease the congestion. Airport fees collected by AoT for takeoff, landing and aircraft parking will be cut by 95 percent during the period.
