45 years that we waiting for…first flight happen on 29 september 2005. and will official open soon.

Suvarnabhumi means Golden Land. Was named by King Rama 9.

155,000 million Baht was spend for the project.

The world's largest runway

25 Km. east from Bangkok

Address : 99, moo 10, Bangna-trad road, Km. 15, Rachatewa Bangplee Samutprakarn10540

The outstanding of Suvarnabhumi Airport is area 20,000 Rai. Can support 45 million passengers (can extended to support 100 million passengers) and 79 flight per hour (include all departure and arrival). And can support Airbus A380* too. Means it’s a new technology surface structure that Thailand never have before.

Cargo can support 3 million tons (Donmuang Airport, Bangkok can support 1 million tons).

Suvarnabhumi Airport will charge the seller cheaper than Donmuang airport, Bangkok. Control the value that make all shopping in airport mark-up only 25% with all shop including thailand food, foreigner restaurants and souvenir

*Airbus A380 was a biggest commerce airplane weight 500 tons, Around the world will start to use it including Thai Airline.



Suvarnabhumi Airport Architecture
Glass and steel in 563,000 square metre that made it was a biggest structure of the world.

Building emphasis the glass structure, special fabric** and steel like the modern architecture around the world. For make it modern for long times although 40 or 50 years.

**Fabric in construction was different from all that you ever seen, since Denver airport, Olympic stadium, Kuala lumper airport or Athens airport and around the world was a mainframe fabric that have 1 layer. But fabric of Suvarnabhumi Airport was 3 layers. Not only the beauty but also advantage too.

Outer layer protect dust, liquid, noise and heat.

Middle layer special protect noise and crash.

Inner layer protect UV radiation, light and noise.

Is there supposed to be high speed rail or mag-lev access to this airport? It looks like there's something other than the highway leading up to the airport.

yes, an airport express rail line is under construction and it is scheduled to open about a year and a half after the new airport opens in July.

it links the city and the airport, allowing passenger to travel from a City Airport Terminal to the Airport in 15 minutes using a limited-stop express train service. there'll also be a local serive running along the same line but trains will call at every station.

the airport railway station is underground, just below the passenger terminal (Basement 2) and the airport hotel (Novotel).

the train is not Maglev though, but a Siemens built Desiro train.

if you're familiar with Bangkok, you can transfer to the Skytrain (BTS) and the Metro (MRT) in the downtown. the airport is about 20 km by road from the city centre. it is found on the eastern suburb or Bangkok.

Partnerships for Sustainable Competitiveness: MARCH 2006 (#84)

2006 Owen G. Kenan Conference makes recommendations to improve planning for development around Thailand’s new airport

The Kenan Institute Asia held its annual development strategy conference on the theme “Development around Suvarnabhumi Airport – Planning to get it right.” As in the previous four Kenan conferences, the aim was to bring together government officials, academics, business executives and community leaders to work on a key development strategy issue for Thailand. With the new Suvarnabhumi Airport scheduled to open in the second half of 2006, the time was right to deal with the difficult issues involved in planning development around the airport so that it meets business, community and environmental needs. Kenan Asia Trustee, Ambassador Nitya Pibulsonggram opened the conference saying that the development of the airport and the area around it was the most important infrastructure development projects in Thai history and that it provided a one-time opportunity to make Suvarnabhumi a key driver of the Thai economy. He said effective planning and implementation would be critical if the country is to realize the full potential of the airport

Developing the Suvarnabhumi area–new mechanisms for management .

The keynote speaker, Mr. Somchai Sunthornwat, Deputy Minister of Interior, said the two key issues involved in the development of the area around the new airport were:

to design and establish zoning for the areas surrounding the airport
to organize a special administrative for the airport area.
The key planning concepts were to make the area a ‘Water City’ and a tourist attraction and develop the supporting business infrastructure to make it the center of air commerce in the region.

He said a special local administrative body would be established for the area to be called “Suvarnabhumi Mahanakorn.” This will evolve in two phases. In the initial period, will be a province, but not yet a full local administrative body. A Suvarnabhumi Mahanakorn management committee will be appointed consisting of 30 members. The committee will include 20 central government representatives, five development experts and four local government officials under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister. In four to eight years, the metropolis will be transformed into a full-scale special local administrative body, dissolving all preceding local administrative bodies. A Suvarnabhumi Mahanakorn council will be established with 36 elected members and an elected governor.

Suvarnabhumi Airport capabilities & potential for national development

Mr. Somchai Sawasdeepon, General Manager, Suvarnabhumi Airport, Airports of Thailand Public Co., Ltd. gave a detailed explanation of the capabilities of the new airport. He said the airport will open with capacity for 45 million passengers annually and can be expanded to accommodate the 120 million passengers forecasted in the next 20 years. Suvarnabhumi will open with 3 million tons of cargo handling capacity per year, which can be expanded to 6-8 million tons.

Airport-Driven Urban Development: The Suvarnabhumi Opportunity

Dr. John Kasarda, Director of the University of North Carolina’s Frank Hawkins Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise presented development examples from major aerotropoli to highlight the challenges faced by the Thai government.

Speed and connectivity, he said, are critical in determining whether a company achieves global success. As a result, corporations are clustering around major airports. In the United Sates, Dr. Kasarda said, aviation-driven business is strongest in the technology sector with technology workers traveling 40-60% more frequently than in other professions. Up to 40% of global trade [by value] is moved by air.

Corporate growth at major airports means that they are much more than points of departure and arrival. Instead, they are developing into the sites of new clusters of logistics centers, business parks, industrial estates, residential and retail shopping areas – forming the basis for what is known as the “aerotropolis”.

Dr. Kasarda said that the critical issue for the Suvarnabhumi area planning is whether it will grow intelligently, or whether haphazard, uncontrolled and environmentally degrading development will take it down the same path of other poorly managed airport developments.

Planning and implementing economic development around Schiphol and Berlin Airports – lessons learned

Dr. Willem Trommels, Managing Director of the Berlin Area Development Company and former Managing Director of the Schiphol Area Development Company described key success factors for developing an aerotropolis, based on lessons learned at Schiphol in the Netherlands, which in the past 20 years has become an important economic center and destination in its own right.

The key factors to ensure success of an airport development, Trommels said, were:

Clear objectives for the airport city
A structured planning approach
A well-thought-out governance structure with clear distribution of responsibilities
Strong management control of land and infrastructure development
Good flow of information between the airport management and those governing the area around it on
Trommels said the Suvarnabhumi Airport area has many of the key conditions necessary for successful development, including support from government willing to champion the airport as a national priority; economic diversity which can be stimulated to support airport activities; and a good location situated between the Bangkok metropolis, the Laem Chabang Port, and industrial areas of the Eastern Seaboard.

Balancing environment, business and community for sustainable development

A panel moderated by KIAsia’s Dr. Saisawan Vadhanapanich provided a wide variety of views. Mrs. Somhathai Panicheeva, Managing Director of Amata Holding Co., Ltd., said the airport and developments around it were critical for the continued success of Thailand’s Eastern Seaboard. She said that businesses were now locating in industrial estates nearby to have good access to the airport.

Mr. Pramoj Maiklad, a Bangkok Senator and former Director General, Royal Irrigation Department, Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, said the low-lying area around the airport and the construction of new roads had increased the possibility of water problems such as flooding in the rainy season, water shortages in the dry season and increased water pollution from industries attracted to the area.

He said that current plans were inadequate to deal with flooding because they do not provide sufficient canals to drain excess water into the sea. The government should formulate an integrated, strategic master plan and appoint a suitable committee to implement it.

Dr. Chutchawal Pringpuangkeo, a leading architect and chairman of Design 103 International, said more work was needed to provide rapid mass transit access to the airport. He said the government should allow the private sector to co-invest in the system to provide the connectivity with Bangkok, with the eastern seaboard and with the new city being developed.

He agreed that there was a significant threat of flooding, but said that instead of letting all flood water run into the sea, it would be better to collect this water for future consumption. With imagination and good design water storage can add to the beauty and attraction of the area.

Mr. Paiboon Wattanasiritham, chairman of the Community Organization Development Institute said that members of existing communities around the airport members would like to participate in the planning and management of the area, but have not been allow significant participation. Although there have been some public hearings regarding the development of Suvarnabhumi metropolis, they are not enough. He said there should be other methodologies to involve the public beyond just public hearings.

He said a governance structure with the Prime Minister as chair, even as an interim measure, should be avoided. It is better to have a respectable private individual lead the effort for reasons of project continuity and lack of political interest, he said.

At the conclusion of the conference, Dr. Suwat Wanisubut, Director of the Office of the Suvarnabhumi Development Committee, promised to consider the comments from all the speakers. He said he would forward these comments to the top officials working on the project. These include Pramote’s proposal on water issues, the industrial and custom development ideas proposed by Somhathai and Chutchawal’s recommendations on storing water. As for the public participation proposed by Paiboon, he said there is already an order from the Ministry of Interior to listen to the public. He said participation by the community will be encouraged in the remaining time.

He said the government is open to public suggestions for improvement of the legislation currently being drafted to establish Suvarnabhumi Mahanakorn. He said it would be agreeable in the longer term to prevent political interference by appointing qualified private executives who can serve uninterrupted terms. However, in the first four years of development, the critical issue would be budget. Appointing high-ranking politicians to the committee will help make it easier to get the necessary budget allocation, he said.

A total of 280 business executives, government officials, NGO representatives and academics attended the conference, which was covered by five television networks and more than 20 print journalists.
