Bangkok Airport

New Airport - Suvarnabhumi

Named Suvarnabhumi (meaning 'Golden Land') by His Majesty the King, the new airport is expected to be the most modern in Asia. The Royal Thai government has prioritised it as a "national agenda" of strategic importance to the future economic and transportation development of the country.

Suvarnabhumi Airport, a new international airport located 24 kilometres east of Bangkok. Expected travel time by road is around 40 minutes. A number of roads are being constructed all around the airport to boost accessibility from various sides and make travel to the new airport easier and quicker. It replaces the old overloaded airport at Don Muang and accommodates all international and domestic flights to Bangkok ,with a total capacity of 76 flights per hour. Suvarnabhumi Airport will be able to handle up to 45 million passengers annually. After completion of the final phase, this will rise to 100 million passengers a year.

Of the 11.6 million arrivals to Thailand in 2004, a total of 8.2 million (or about 70.6 percent) came through Bangkok. Many of them use the Thai capital as the gateway for taking onward flights to numerous other destinations throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

The entire airport will occupies a total area of 8000 acres, making it five times larger than the present airport, Don Muang. At 563 000 square metres, the passenger terminal will be one of the world’s largest single building structures. The total investment cost is estimated at 155 billion baht (about R26-billion).
