Suvarnabhumi Airport to remain on high alert against Ebola virus


BANGKOK, 1 August 2014  – Suvarnabhumi International Airport is set to strictly monitor all flights coming in from West Africa after there has been widespread panic that the deadly virus could spread to parts of Asia. 

Director of Suvarnabhumi Airport Raveewan Netrakavesana revealed that the airport has increased its security measures in a bid to prevent Ebola from reaching Thailand.

All passengers traveling from Africa are required to have an official document showing proof that they have been vaccinated against yellow fever.

The airport director also stated that as of now, there are no direct flights between Thailand and Liberia, Guinea, or Sierra Leone, which are the three countries in West Africa that have been severely hit by the Ebola outbreak recently.
