First
commercial flight lands
on Suvarnabhmi Airport


The first commercial test flight from Don Muang Airport to Bangkok's new Suvarnabhumi Airportof of Thai Airways International (THAI), the national flag carrier, landed successfully on the new airport Saturday morning as scheduled.

The THAI's Boeing 747-400 aircraft, TG181 flight, carrying Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, other cabinet members, senior government officials and other passengers, historically landed on Suvarnabhumi Airport's runway at 08:09 a.m.

THAI has offered a special airfare of Bt999 for the inaugural commercial flight from Don Muang Airport to Suvarnabhumi Airport.Prime Minister Thaksin told journalists before boarding on the inaugural commercial flight that he was excited and delighted that finally the Bangkok's new internatinal airport was successfully developed after a four-decade plan.Upon his arrival at the new airport, the prime minister is scheduled to take hours to visit and inspect the readiness of all facilities before flying back to Don Muang Airport.

THAI and other five commercial airlines, including Nok Air, Thai Air Asia, Orient Thai, P.B. Air and Bangkok Airways, join the commercial flight tests for Suvarnabhumi Airport with special flights on Saturday.

The first test flight of the national airline is to be followed by 21 other domestic flights all the day.The Department of Civil Aviation has already issued the Interim Aerodome Certificate for the Suvarnabhumi Airport.
Many airlines, including THAI, Bangkok Airways and Air Asia, have announced that they plan to open new international routes to serve the commercial opening of Suvarnabhumi Airport on September 28.With the scheduled opening of the country's new international airport only a few months away, complete testing of the new airport facilities has begun since July 3 to ensure that the national showcase is fully ready for the launch.The tests include the airport's air-conditioning and lighting systems, passenger check-in counters, customs services and the operation of CTX bomb scanners.

The eight-storey airport complex, including an underground floor, where there will be electric mass transit facilities, and passenger terminals, has a total area of some 563,000 square metres and can cater to 45 million passengers annually.Meanwhile, the Department of Land Transport has affirmed the readiness of transport service for passengers to the new international airport.

The department said that transport services to the new Bangkok interntional airport include limousines, airport buses and airport express service.Airport buses, including inter-provincial bus service, will be run by the Transport Co., Ltd and the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA).

The airport express service, operated by the Thonburi Service Co., Ltd., will provide buses running through the capital's business areas and to downtown hotels in areas such as Silom and Wireless roads.

Prime Minister Thaksin said the transport service to the new airport is not aimed to reap benefit, but to promote the kingdom globally.

Bus access and seating is also modified to facilitate passengers with disabilities, according to the Thai leader. (TNA)
