Bangkok Airport - Update

Wed Feb 15, 2006 2:29 am

Does anyone have a rough date when the new Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport will actualy open for traffic?

I've heard June of this year, is that correct?

I'm planning to travel to BKK during July/August and would like to travel into the new airport, obviously only if it's open  Wink

Please could someone provide me with an update?

Also will Bangkok Air and Air Asia aircraft be on remote stands like at Don Muang, or will they be at gates?

Also can someone provide me with some pics of the new terminal and airport, I remember viewing some before?  Smile

I'd thought the latest date was to be September (2006). It currently seems to be subject to the position of the moon...

I was at BKK in December and they have displays of the new airport with pictures. The pictures show that the airport is essentially completed with furniture and all. What is the deal? Why haven't they opened the airport?

Pretty useless question.

I expect (In the stupid thai fashion - the summit of kings coming in June 2006)

Normally - Maybe November with all thenhassle that HKG went through.
