PHUKET: Soldiers, Navy personnel and a battery of local officials arrived in force at Phuket International Airport Monday morning to launch a campaign to arrest all taxi drivers illegally picking up passengers at the facility.
Security personnel barred any taxis from exiting the airport car park without first obtaining permission to leave.
“We have a list of all the drivers who are allowed to pick up passengers at the airport,” said Capt Somphong Narkthong of the Royal Thai Navy Third Area Command, based in Phuket.
