The Phuket International Airport is conducting an Emergency Plan Exercise: PEMEX, an annual, real-life practice drill today (August 30), from 10pm to 1.30am tomorrow.

The Phuket PR Office says that the simulations involve a ‘Sabotage and Suicide Bomber in Domestic Passenger Terminal’ scenario.

Some sections of the area for the practice drill will be closed. The Phuket Airport is appealing for passengers and passers-by for a cooperation not to record or take photos of the practice drill.

The General Manager of Phuket International Airport Petch Chancharoen is worried about the practice drill tonight especially for people who are coming to pick up or drop off their relatives and friends. He says this will be just a practice drill which is held every year to provide valuable training and prepare staff for emergency situations.

The Phuket International Airport apologises for any inconvenience.
