Suvarnabhumi Airport to introduce body scanners

The Airports of Thailand (AoT) has invested 100 million baht to improve security screen areas at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport.

Eight full body scanners will be implemented for maximum security checks, according to AoT senior executive vice-president and acting president Nirandra Theeranartsin.

We will relocate the security checkpoint zone from behind the immigration service areas to a new mezzanine floor, where passengers must take an escalator up to walk through the scanners and then take another escalator down to the immigration areas,” he said.

    After years of living in Thailand, we’re going back to Europe next year and we won’t be coming back. We never fly through airports with body scanners. They’re dangerous and ineffective. Even the Israelis and Germans won’t use them. Looks like our next trip to Asia will be to Malaysia. They don’t have full body scanners. Then again, Malays are much smarter than Thais.

    I was not allowed a pat-down search when I went through Suvarnabhumi aiport. I was made to have an X-Ray scan or was not allowed to fly.
    This is sheer forced radiation poisioning for the masses.
    I am sorry to say after many years visiting Thailand, this time was that last.
    There are alternative health-friendly countries tio visit.

    In America you can opt out of a body scan and have a body search instead.
    Not in Thailand though – they are operating a forced medication policy, which means that you MUST take part in their slo-motion genocide operation.
