A court to make quick rulings on all conflicts involving tourists will open in Phuket on Tuesday in an attempt to bolster the tourism image of the resort island. 

The debut of the Phuket court follows one in Pattaya, which opened on Sept 5. It handles civil and criminal cases lodged by local and foreign tourists.

Suvarnabhumi Airport will also open a courtroom for foreign plaintiffs on Monday, with a plan to set up a court by the Courts of Justice and the Tourism and Sports Ministry in the pipeline.
