Does anyone know when the new BKK international airport (Suvarnabhumi) is due to be completed? I assume construction started last year?


I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

All infos normally available on: http://www.suvarnabhumiairport.com but it looks like the site is down for the moment.

If I'm not mistaken it said 2-3 days ago Count-down to opening 770 days, meaning around year 2005. And if I'm not mistaken "basic" constructions already started back in 1996 or 1997 but have been stopped due to the Asia economic crisis.

Can't wait to see the new airport! The current field most definitely needs to be obsolete!


Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

More precisely a LH like B747-100 and definitely not a B707 but a DC10.

Actually, the second one, the one seen from upside down, is also a 747, albeit without engine 1 & 3! Look closely and you can see the part where the hump ends.
