Suvarnabhumi_Airport taxiBangkok: Taxi queues at Thailand International airport will be computerised within a month to end mafia control of cab operations, chief of the 11th Military Circle Maj Gen Nirundorn Samutsakorn said.

Cabs will also be able to pick up passengers at the departure level on the fourth floor, but not park there. The reforms are part of the efforts by the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) to improve public transport systems.

Maj Gen Nirundorn said the army felt that the first priority in taxi management should be at the airport, for the sake of the country’s image and to prevent problems such as passengers left stranded on the road, over-charging and drivers acting improperly.
