Prime Minister opens new U-Tapao Aircraft Maintenance Facility

New center showcases the value of U-Tapao Airport

Prime Minister Chuan Leekpai visited the Eastern Seaboard for the second week in a row, this time to chair the opening of the Thai Airways’ U-tapao Aircraft Maintenance Center.

Prime Minister Chuan Leekpai and honored guests “press the official button” to open the new Thai Airways Aircraft Maintenance Facility at U-tapao Airport.

Suthep Thueksuban, Minister of Communications, announced the proceedings as Dhamanoon Wanglee, Thai Airways General Manager, welcomed guests, who included Chayachit Ratkhachorn, Governor of Rayong, Admiral Narong Yutthawong, Commander of Sattahip Naval Base, and hundreds of invited people.

The Thai Airways crew has been performing aircraft maintenance service at Don Muang Airport in Bangkok. The maintenance service has been supporting Thai Airways and airlines of other countries at four aircraft maintenance hangers in the capital.

But due to expansion in the airline business, the number of aircraft using the maintenance facilities has increased, making it necessary to expand the maintenance facilities to accommodate the trend.
