Bangkok to reopen Don Muang Airport

The Thai government agreed to reopen Bangkok’s old Don Muang airport for international and domestic flights, amid growing problems at the scandal-ridden Suvarnabhumi Airport, according to the Associated Press. Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont told reporters after a Cabinet meeting that the government needed time to make repairs and improvements at Suvarnabhumi Airport, which has been plagued by glitches and corruption allegations since opening in September.

“The Cabinet today has agreed to reopen Don Muang as an international airport,” Surayud said. He did not say when Don Muang would be reopened.
