Thai Suvarnabhumi Airport Commercial Launch Around Jun 20


12-28-05 09:08 PM EST

BANGKOK -(Dow Jones)- A planned THB48-billion expansion of the New Bangkok International Airport should be put on hold, Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said late Wednesday, while indicating a tentative date for the opening of the airport.

"We should get better ideas about passenger traffic and the airport's capacity before investing in the second phase," Thaksin said after a meeting with the airport's management.

He said the new facility - also known as the Suvarnabhumi Airport - will start commercial operations around June 20.

"The tentative schedule for the opening is around June 20. We will announce the official date later," Thaksin said. "But it won't be later than the end of June."

The new airport was initially scheduled to have opened in September, but many of the projects encountered delays.

Thaksin to instruct Airports of Thailand to improve facilities for disabled

Published on Dec 30 , 2005

Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said on Friday that he would instruct the Airports of Thailand Plc to improve facilites for the disabled and elderly at the new Suvanarbhumi International Airport.

Thaksin said he would take action after a group of representatives of the physically disabled submitted complaints to him on Thursday that the facilities were either lacking or substandard.

After visiting the airport last Tuesday, representatives of the disabled said they found that a main door was not automatic and had to be opened manually; that the seat of a toilet for the disabled was too high; and that there was no designated rest area for the disabled.

"Many spots are accident-prone, especially because of the slippery floor. And the passage from the passport control booth to the hall has no rest areas," said Torpong Kulkhanchit, head of the Disabled People's Institution in the Asia Pacific Region.

He added that claims by airport administrators that the facilities met international standards indicated that "they had tried to avoid involving disabled people in checking that the facilities would be useable and accessible."

He urged Thaksin to set up a committee including representatives of the disabled to supervise the suitability of the facilities before the new airport opens next year.

Thailand’s bid for regional airport supremacy imperiled

By Nareerat Wiriyapong

BANGKOK: Thailand aims to become Southeast Asia’s aviation hub when the new 3.7 billion dollar Bangkok international airport opens but some aviation officials doubt that the June opening date will be met.

Suvarnabhumi airport is meant to surpass regional rivals Singapore and Malaysia, but the world civil aviation body has yet to approve the project.

Officials from an international aviation group say the facility—which was partially opened amid much fanfare in September—needs more time so tests can be run.

The airport, whose name means golden land, has been planned for more than 40 years and was variously scheduled to open in 1990, 2000 and on September 29. A high-speed train line linking it with the city is at least two years away.

The delays are because the government ruled that the airport, 25 kilometers (16 miles) east of Bangkok, would be expanded to take both domestic and international flights, not simply international ones as consultants had proposed.

However, Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who publicly pledged it would open in September, decided in December to postpone a scheduled expansion immediately after the opening.

“We have checked and found that everything is ready,” Thaksin said in his weekly radio address on Saturday. “The airport could be opened in the next 180 days or by the end of June.”

Airport general manager Somchai Sawasdeepon said most construction work was finished except for airline facilities including lounges and offices.

“We are preparing for commissioning processes to make sure air traffic control and ground services will have as few problems as possible,” he told AFP.

“Everything could be completed within the next six months,” he said, adding that the airlines had been told operations will start in June.

Some observers remain unconvinced.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA), which represents 270 airlines, pointed out that the airport lacks approval from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for its security systems.

“Without certification from the ICAO, the new airport cannot be opened,” Chitvee Leelasiri, IATA country manager, told AFP.

“It should be certified before commissioning works start.”

He said the private sector was not allowed a full inspection of the airport during a September visit and airlines were worried about unresolved disputes over airline lounge designs.

“The period of another 180 days might be too short to be commercially operating,” Chitvee said.

The airport’s Somchai said plans for the security and emergency systems and procedures would be sent to the ICAO this month and he expected approval by early March.

The IATA in September reminded Thailand that a special advisory committee set up four months earlier to help plan the airport’s opening had not met, but needed to do so “urgently.”

Somchai said on Sunday that although that committee was “not active,” another body had been established to steer the airport opening.

The IATA also suggested Suvarnabhumi be tested for at least six months before beginning commercial operations, to avoid difficulties experienced at new airports in Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong.

The new airport could handle 45 million passengers annually, against the 38 million through the existing Don Muang international and domestic airport in the capital’s north.

While the new airport was supposed to be expanded in June to handle 54 million passengers by 2010, Thaksin shelved the expansion pending a review of Don Muang’s status and revenue forecasts of the airport’s operator.

“It remains unclear whether all activities would be moved to Suvarnnabhumi,” airport general manager Somchai said.

“Don Muang might be used to accommodate some domestic and charter flights in addition to the original plan to house an aircraft depot there.”

Thai Travel Agents Association president Apichart Sankary said the new airport would be able to rival its regional competitors as it had facilities equal to theirs.

“But to attract airline operators, we need to give better service and facilitate their requests,” he said.

A year of controversy for Bangkok's newest pride
SARITDET MARUKATAT


December 1: Airport officials inspect a runway at the airport
to dismiss reports that its construction was sub-standard and could cause problems to aircraft landing at the airport.
— SOMCHAI POOMLARD


Good and bad news haunted Suvarnabhumi airport throughout 2005, and it is still not clear when it will become operational. Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra had confidently declared the 155-billion-baht project would open to traffic on Sept 29, despite scepticism by people in the aviation business.

The prime minister at least partly fulfilled his promise, leading cabinet members and other dignitaries on two Thai Airways International flights which touched down at the airport, in Samut Prakan's Bang Phli district, for landing and systems tests on Sept 29.

Still, the airport cannot function commercially until all the construction and testing is completed.

The government is now eyeing a June opening for the first commercial flights. But given what is really happening there on the ground, even officials in charge of the project believe that will not be possible.

While the Sept 29 landings gave Mr Thaksin some solace, the airport project also contributed to the plunging popularity of his government with the controversy surrounding the purchase of the 26 US-made CTX 9000 luggage bomb detection machines.

US investigators indicated irregularities in the purchase of the machines in Thailand, China and the Philippines, but the government strongly denied this.

However, the prime minister did move Suriya Jungrungreangkit from the post of transport minister to the post of industry minister to ease pressure on the government after Mr Suriya could not clearly explain in parliament, where he was grilled on June 27 by the opposition parties led by the Democrats, why the detectors were so expensive.

Pongsak Raktapongpaisal replaced him as transport minister.

The latest bad news was the decision on Dec 28 by the prime minister to put on hold the plan to expand the new airport to enable it to process 45 million passengers annually. It is now expected to reach its capacity in 2010.
