China outbound tourism

The Chinese New Year period drew 1.4 million visitors to Thailand, according to Suvarnabhumi Airport Senior Executive Vice President and General Manager Nirandra Theeranartsin.

The figure is triple the number recorded between February 12-21 last year. On average the number of passengers increased from about 3,000 to 140,000 per day.

The airport appointed Chinese-speaking “airport ambassadors” to help them with the filling up of immigration forms and guiding them through customs procedures.
