Air arrivals to Bangkok up nearly 16% through October

International arrivals by air at Bangkok, excluding Thai travellers, in the first 10 months of this year rose 15.97% year-on-year to 7.92 million, according to statistics compiled by the Immigration Bureau.

The top six countries of origin for visitors, in order, were Japan, China, South Korea, the UK, the US and Singapore.

The top three positions remained unchanged from last year. The UK remained the largest European market for visitors, with 540,401 arrivals, an increase of 7.96%.

Arrivals from Singapore fell by 4.36% over last year, perhaps as a result of fallout from the controversial sale of Shin Corp to the Singaporean company Temasek Holdings, which had prompted some anti-Singapore sentiment in Thailand.

Russia posted the largest increase of any country, with 99,247 arrivals in the same period, up 108% over the same period last year.

Southern unrest does not appear to have affected cross-border traffic with Malaysia, with arrivals rising 16.35%.

Thailand is becoming more popular not only with Europeans, but also with visitors from the Middle East. They are no longer keen to travel to the US or the UK in great numbers and feel more welcome in Asia.

The arrival figures from the Middle East rose 33.43%, with Saudi Arabia showing an increase of 86.47% and Egypt increasing 48.60%.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand has projected overall foreign tourist arrivals will reach 13.5 million this year, against 11.52 million last year, which was down by 1.15% from the previous year.

The TAT expects foreign tourist arrivals in 2007 to increase to 14.8 million.

World's largest plane lands at world's newest airport

dpa German Press Agency
Published: Tuesday December 5, 2006

Bangkok- A test flight of Airbus' A380 superjumbo jet ended at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport Tuesday without a hitch, making it the 38th airport successfully tested by the world's largest aircraft. The test flight, carrying dummy passengers and five crew, landed a few minutes behind schedule, the Thai News Agency reported.

The A380 was flown to Bangkok as part of Airbus' ongoing sales negotiations with the national carrier, Thai Airways International, which has ordered six of the colossi, and to test its "compatibility" with Bangkok's new airport, Richard Carcaillet, Airbus' director of product marketing, said at a press conference.

Airbus was expecting the A380, its newest aircraft, which is capable of handling 555 passengers, to be certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency and US Federal Aviation Administration within a week, Carcaillet said.

Thus far, 166 A380s have been ordered worldwide, including six by Thai Airways, although that order is now under discussion after production delays and a change in government in Thailand in September.

Thai Airways planned to use the planes on its popular routes from Bangkok to Frankfurt, London and Paris.

Carcaillet said Monday that he was confident the delivery of six A380s to the airline by 2011 will be on time.

Bangkok's new Suvarnabhumi Airport, which opened on September 28 after several delays, is the world's newest airport and was built to accommodate the A380.

A380
SuperJumbo
arrives in Thailand

(Agencies)

Thailand today welcomed the A380 superjumbo on its first visit to the kingdom, a day after European plane maker Airbus promised no more delays in delivery of the aircraft.

The world's largest plane arrived at Suvarnabhumi Airport at about 1:20 pm, and a group of 20 airline officials applauded as the 555-seat jumbo touched down at the new airport.

The A380, carrying 55 passengers and five crew, flew direct from Toulouse, France to Suvarnabhumi, and will leave Bangkok and return to France on Thursday.

The previously unscheduled trip is widely seen a move by Airbus to convince Thai Airways not to cancel its order for six planes after the flag carrier demanded compensation for the hold up.

Ian Thomas, an analyst at the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation in Sydney, said that the trip was also important because Suvarnabhumi Airport, which opened just over two months ago, was designed to accommodate the A380.

"Airbus is now in a position where it has to start realizing some of the potential that's offered by the aircraft,'' he said.

Bangkok was noticeably missing from the A380's globe-spanning test that wrapped up last week, although the plane stopped in several other Asian countries.

Airbus' director of product marketing, Richard Carcaillet, on Monday declined to comment on the negotiations with Thai Airways over possible compensation for the delays but insisted that Airbus would stick to the latest delivery schedule.

"We are very confident there will be no delay,'' he said. "Thai's delivery will be on time.''

Thai has ordered six of the A380s, with three now scheduled for delivery in 2011, delayed from 2009. No delivery date has been set for the remaining three aircraft.

If Thai canceled its order, it would be Airbus's first loss of a contract for the passenger version of the plane. Thai Airways president Apinan Sumanaseni said Saturday that the airline was in talks with Airbus on compensation for the delays.

Thai Airways had planned to use the superjumbos on some of its most popular routes, flying from Bangkok to Frankfurt, London and Tokyo.

Thailand awaits arrival of Airbus A380


Thailand Tuesday eagerly awaited the arrival of the new A380 superjumbo on its first trip to the country, a day after European plane maker Airbus promised no more delays in delivery of the aircraft.

The surprise trip to Bangkok's new Suvarnabhumi Airport is widely seen a move by Airbus to convince Thai Airways not cancel its order for six planes after the flag carrier demanded compensation for the hold up.

The A380 is flying direct from Toulouse, France to Suvarnabhumi and is due to land at about 1.00 pm (0600 GMT). It leaves Bangkok and returns to France on Thursday.

Airbus A380 lands on new Bangkok airport after assurance on aircraft delivery

12.05.06, 2:50 AM ET

BANGKOK (XFN-ASIA) - The A380 superjumbo landed on Thailand's new international airport for the first time after European plane maker Airbus promised the country yesterday there would be no more delays in the delivery of the aircraft.

The world's largest plane arrived at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport at about 1:20 pm, and a group of 20 airline officials welcomed the 555-seat jumbo.

The A380, carrying 55 passengers and five crew, flew direct from Toulouse, France to Suvarnabhumi, and will leave Bangkok and return to France on Thursday.

Biggest commercial passenger plane
Airbus A380
lands in Bangkok


Published: December 5, 2006

BANGKOK, Thailand: The world's largest commercial passenger plane, the Airbus A380, touched down at Bangkok's new airport Tuesday, after an 11 hour, 35 minute flight from Toulouse, France, for its first trip to Thailand.

Airbus officials have said they expect the A380 to be certified as airworthy by the end of this year after the 555-seat plane completed its trial flights on Nov. 30.

During the trials, the plane traveled about 127,788 kilometers (69,000 nautical miles) in some 152 flight hours over 18 days, with stops at 10 airports in the Asia-Pacific region.

At Bangkok's new Suvarnabhumi international airport, the A380 will be presented to officials from Thai Airways International and Airports of Thailand, Airbus said in a statement.

"Airport compatibility verification tests" will also be undertaken, it added.

Suvarnabhumi, which opened in September, has five gates capable of receiving A380s.

A spokesman for Thai Airways, which has ordered six A380s, said expansion plans envision an extra satellite gate specifically for the superjumbo.

Airbus has received 166 firm orders or commitments for the A380 from 15 airlines.

Singapore Airlines will be the first carrier to fly the superjumbo — it expects to receive its first A380 next October, a year later than initially planned. Other deliveries are expected to be delayed by an average of two years.

The technical trial flights in November took the A380 to Singapore, Seoul in South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan's Narita airport and Guangzhou, Beijing and Shanghai in China. It also undertook a round-the-world trip via both poles, with stops in South Africa, Australia and Canada.

"At each destination the A380 performed as expected, demonstrating that it can be turned around as per normal airline operations," Airbus said in its statement Tuesday.

The plane is scheduled to fly back to Toulouse on Thursday, it said.

Point of correction: The A380 Whalejet is NOT the "World's largest plane".
That honour belongs to the AN-225 Mriya (though the H-4 Spruce Goose had a larger wingspan); a cargo plane first flown in 1988.
The giant Airbus is more correctly the world's largest passenger airliner.

Airport no-housingzone grows to 10km
Move aims to solve aircraft noise pollution


AMORNRAT MAHITTHIROOK


The no-housing zone surrounding Suvarnabhumi airport has been extended from a radius of eight to 10km as a long-term solution to aircraft noise pollution, Deputy Transport Minister Sansern Wongcha-um said yesterday. Mr Sansern said the meeting on management of the airport vicinity, which he chaired, agreed yesterday that residents in the designated areas would be subject to expropriation, which would be carried out on a voluntary basis.

The exact area covered in a radius from the airport's centre and the number of affected homes had yet to be determined.

Mr Sansern said the announcement prohibiting housing within 8km of the airport had been in place since 1992 and reiterated on many occasions, but it had never been taken seriously. He said the aircraft noise since the opening of the airport had made areas in the vicinity unfit for residential purposes. Land prices have plunged by up to 80% as a result.

The meeting gave a working team, comprising transport permanent secretary Chaisawat Kittipornpaiboon, the National Economic and Social Development Board (NESDB) and related agencies, one to two months to work out a plan for commercial development of the areas in the no-housing zone. Maximum benefits and possible private participation in the development would be the aims of the plan.

The areas had a high potential to serve aviation-related activities, he said.

In the short run, those badly affected by aircraft noise and who could no longer stay in their homes would be relocated to about 100 housing units in the Lat Krabang-Romklao area that Airports of Thailand had arranged for their temporary stay, pending settlement.

Mr Sansern said talks are underway to sort out compensation and assistance for the first phase of expropriation _ 71 houses sitting on 29 rai of land north of Suvarnabhumi, where noise levels were measured at above 40 on the scale of the Noise Exposure Forecasts, considered a level dangerous to health. Compensation rates will vary according to the location and land price of each house, but total costs for this first batch would be capped at within the 389-million-baht budget the cabinet approved on Nov 14
