Thai fruits sweeten tourist welcome at Suvarnabhumi airport

International passengers arriving at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport were given a surprise welcome with famous tropical Thai fruits, following the government’s Thai fruit promotion policy.
Serirat Prasuthanond, director of Airports of Thailand (AOT), stated that Suvarnabhumi’s international arrival terminal was richly flourished with tropical Thai fruits including northern sweet ‘longan’, the queen of fruits ‘mangosteen’ and juicy southern ‘longkong’ to promote Thai fruit among foreigners, under the concept of ‘Experience Thai Taste in Thai Fruits’ that ended on September 11.
“Some 40,000 international passengers transit through Suvarnabhumi airport each day. It is a good opportunity to promote Thai fruits worldwide,” added the AOT director.
Foreigners were advised on how to eat Thai fruit properly and how carry the fruit home in a fine sealed package.
The 20-tonnes of free Thai fruit distributed at Suvarnabhumi airport was targeted as part of the government policy to introduce Thai fruit to world markets and also to help fruit growers after prices dropped dramatically in recent weeks. TNA
