Airports of Thailand expects passenger numbers rise of 6-10%

Airports of Thailand says it expects total passenger numbers to rise by between 6-10% in its financial year ending September 2015 as tourism recovers from months of political unrest.

Acting president Nirandra Theeranartsin told reporters that the political situation is “back to normal”, which makes more foreign travellers fly into Thailand.

The ongoing turmoil hurt confidence and tourism, which accounts for about 10% of the Thai economy and the army seized power in May in a bid to restore stability.

In its financial year ended September 2014, the firm said total passengers rose 1.67% to 87.57 million.

The number of foreign tourists rose for the second straight months in November from a year earlier, but it still dropped 8.61% in the first 11 months of 2014.
