A meeting was held yesterday, led by the Phuket International Airport General Manager Petch Chancharoen, to discuss a YouTube post showing photos from the airport’s neighbouring beach.
YouTuber “Donprozento” posted a video on March 10 showing tourists taking photos of an aircraft landing at Phuket.
The meeting addressed how to prevent potential danger to tourists taking photos and problems that could be caused by a drone.
Petch said: “We strictly check on the safety as that is our main concern.
CCTV cameras have been installed near the area as well as three-metre fences and warning signs. Security staff member are patrolling the area every hour.
“The law will be strictly enforced for any offence. Both Thai and foreign tourists must not take pictures in this restricted area.
This is to prevent any harm to both tourists on the beach and aircraft landing on the sea approach to the airport.”
