AirAsia group chief executive Tony Fernandes is calling on Thai authorities to privatise airports as a way to tackle funding and development issues.
"I encourage the government to privatise airports to allow new money to come in so these facilities can be developed faster," he told the Bangkok Post during an interview in Sepang, Malaysia.
He branded airport deficiency one of the major bottlenecks to expanding Thailand's aviation industry, particularly in handling fast-growing air traffic spurred by mass tourism.
