Hi!

Any update on the opening date for the new airport in Bangkok, Suvarnabhumi ?

The latest I heard a few months ago was April or May 2006. The airports website doesn't mention anything on a opening date.

More info please !

Should be toward the end of next year or early in 2007.

Cheers

How long is a piece of string?

Good question, but I think the answer is hard to come by. If you've ever been to Thailand, you will become accustomed to "Thai time", which essentially means it'll be ready when it's ready!

The BKK Post reported this on 19 Nov 2005:

The airport's passenger terminals and the information technology (IT) building, which will be the centre of all computerized controlled systems--namely aviation control and CTX bomb scanning system--are still unfinished, he said.

"The Bt2.25 billion (US$56 million) IT building is a core structure of the Suvarnabhumi Airport. Everything inside must be fully protected and enjoy
continuous service once the airport is opened commercially by June 2006. But there are still leaks in its roof and the installation of computer systems is unlikely to be completed before March next year," Gen. Chainant noted.

The last date mentioned was mid-2006 . . . meaning the opening date has lapsed further. With the concerns expressed in the article above, it would not be surprising to see further delays.

Like Flykal says: It'll be ready when it is ready.
