"Thats the Atrium hall leads to the underground highspeed rail link station that will connect the airport to city terminal"

Incorrect. That is the connection to the underground Automated People Mover station, which will connect passengers to a future satellite concourse being built in Phase 2. The reason that the enclosure is built now is to avoid apron disruption when the airport is in operation.

The high speed rail link station to the city is fully underground on the entrance side of the Terminal.

Ahhhhh, I see. But isn't placing it on the tarmac a bit... odd?

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, thanks Chicago Hoagie. Yeah the people mover makes more sense, will it not be used though until they build some satellite concourses?

I heard that the satellite concourses will be built in next five years after the traffic volume increases.

No, What incorrect is what you typed.

The train will stop at sattellite terminal in the future, yes and will also continues to The Makkasan Central.

I'v been to the site manytimes and discussed to the Consortium, ITO jointventure and The NBIA Company them selves already.




This image below, you can clearly see the tunnel go streight to the exit of the airport., sattellite Terminal is on the total-opporsite site(perhaps in this rendition is on the right that does not shows in the image)


and continues to go up "above ground" when passed the airport hotel, picture below showing the Train railway when it "pops" up to the ground level.

The Main Terminal is just behind the Novotel Hotel.

Honestly I DETEST those raw messy industrial looking legs that support the roof. Otherwise, everything else looks almost PERFECT, especially the blue glass and the fabric looking roof cover...

1. "The train will stop at sattellite terminal in the future" - Correct, the train will stop at the future south terminal (not called satellite terminal), but it will not stop at either the 1st or 2nd midfield satellite concourses. There will be no check-in or departure immigration control at the satellite concourses, so the express train cannot drop off passengers there.

2. The express station for the Phase 1 north terminal is fully underground at front of the north terminal. The high speed rail extension to the future south terminal will run underneath the APM tracks. The APM will have stops at the north terminal, 1st satellite, 2nd satellite, then south terminal.

3. The original photo shows the connection enclosure between the middle of Concourse D and the underground APM station.

Suvarnabhumi fully operational only in January
Bloomberg

Bangkok's new $3 billion international airport won't be ready for full commercial operations until January, more than three months later than scheduled, Tourism Authority of Thailand Governor Juthamas Siriwan has said.
The Suvarnabhumi International Airport, designated Thailand's national priority project, is officially scheduled to start operating on September 29. Instead, that will probably be the date of its “soft opening,‘‘ Juthamas said in an interview. “Full operations will be January next year,‘‘ she said in Bangkok. “It's almost finished.‘‘
Bangkok's aging Don Muang International Airport can't compete successfully for additional flights and passengers with new, larger airports in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Seoul. According to reports in the media, almost 3.9 million foreign visitors flew into Bangkok in the first six months of 2005, 1.4 percent more than the same period a year earlier.
Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra acknowledged on June 27 that the airport “will not open on schedule,‘‘ and said about 7 percent of construction still had to be completed. He didn't provide a new time line.
Airlines have complained to the tourism authority about delays and a lack of information on the revised schedule, Juthamas said. She has recommended that regulators and Airports of Thailand Plc keep airlines informed about progress on the project, and help with claims of compensation.
The delay comes as Thailand is struggling to lure back visitors to its southwest beach resorts after the December 26 tsunami that killed more than 5,400 people – half of them tourists.
The tourism authority was seeking an additional 3-billion baht ($71 million) budget to market Thailand more aggressively as a holiday destination to different countries, including India and China, Juthamas said. According to reports, the government has approved an additional 2.5 billion baht.
“It is a selling point if you have a new airport, and also you can promote the convenience of a direct flight from anywhere, which is one thing that makes tourists decide to come,‘‘ Juthamas said. “I think the airport authority is trying to accommodate all the needs of airlines, and to open it as fast as possible.‘‘
Don Muang International Airport may be converted into an exhibition center, Juthamas said.

I like this idea. It's always good to hear when old airports are closed down, they're converted into something useful, instead of remaining an airport who used to be "big".

New Bangkok airport being constructed with nearly 4 billion Us .
due to rising of oil price leads to an increasing of materials. for the airport itself will cost around that but roads , expressways , airport train link will add up tho cost more than 1 billion US.

In total New Bangkok international airport will cost over 4-5 billion Usd for the first phrase of construction.

World's largest passenger terminal and the tallest control tower will promote this airport to the world.

Bangkok airport construction

SUVANABHUMI AIRPORT(New BKK int'l airport)

How is it pronounced?
"soo-wan-na-poom"

What does it mean?
"Golden Peninsula"or "Golden Land"--a traditional name for the Thailand-Cambodia-Laos-Burma region


These photos are from www.2bangkok.com





At 132 metres, the control tower will be the highest in the world, a factor which Mr. Vichet said would help attract international airlines and tourists to the new airport...
: Tallest control tower in the world - November 1, 2004

More pics

Hi Chad ! you have great photos of BKK airport, Skyline
thanks God that you were born on earth to post those nice photos .
Chad , I wanna see more of your photos... maybe old one .. but can't find coz too many posts.
I am new for this web hehe

Seven floors and a basement will give the terminal a total floor area of over 500,000m˛ making it the largest in the world.


The terminal's main materials are steel and glass.


Suvarnabhumi eventually will be able to cope with 120 million passengers per year and will have four runways with which to do this.
