The Krabi International Airport, with the help of the Thai government, recently joined forces with telecommunications brand Huawei to introduce 5G networking and services to the new "smart airport." Krabi is the first airport to undergo this development, with 28 other airports in the pipeline across the country.
NBTC secretary-general, Takorn Tanthasit, said the project at Krabi International Airport will start next month. He elaborated on the smart airport initiative, stating: “Huawei will provide additional innovations and services at the airport for free to ensure passengers’ safety in the new normal era after the Covid-19 outbreak, such as robots that can detect passenger density in airport areas, thermal scanners, and UV treatment equipment for passengers’ luggage."
