Customs Department to install 23 more X Ray machines on conveyor belts in Suvarnabhumi Airport by end of 2019


The Customs Department plans to install more X-ray machines on conveyor belts to increase the efficiency of the inspection at Suvarnabhumi Airport by the end of 2019.

So far, 23 belts in the arrivals area are being installed. The department also aims to adopt the National Single Window system, in accordance with the Government’s policy, to facilitate customs operations. The system is also being installed in Myanmar and the Philippines.

The government and customs Department states that this will increase safety and security at the airport as well as expedite overall processing.

The Pattaya News notes that critics on social media, however, claim that it is meant to make more money on importation and fines.
