Airports Dept eyes Bt5.8bn budget for 2021 upgrades

The Department of Airports has asked for a 2021 budget of Bt5.8 billion, almost the same as last year, said director-general Tawee Gasisam-ang.

Around 90 per cent of the budget will be spent on improving its airports.
Of the total, Bt3.234 billion is earmarked for upgrades at airports in Krabi, Khon Khaen, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Trang, Surat Thani and Buriram.
The state agency will spend some of the budget on extending runways at Trang and Buriram airports.
It will also renovate airport car parking facilities at Ubon Ratchathani and Surat Thani.
