Last gasp for airport puffers International terminal could bar smokers

Bangkokpost Published: 8/11/2010 at 12:00 AM


Health authorities are pressing ahead with a plan to close all smoking areas at Suvarnabhumi airport's international terminal.

The ban is in keeping with a ministerial regulation which prohibits smoking in public places, including airports.

The Office of the Tobacco Control Committee will work with Airports of Thailand Plc to put the Public Health Ministry regulation into practice.

The airport has 18 smoking rooms for international passengers.

The ministry in June closed all smoking rooms in the domestic passengers' area at Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports in line with the ban.

The president of the Health Promotion Institute, Hatai Chitanondh, said studies show that airport smoking areas expose non-smokers in adjacent non-smoking areas to significant concentrations of nicotine vapour.

Similar smoking room bans have been imposed at some international airports in Europe.

Those who wish to smoke still have the option to do so outside the building, Dr Hatai said.

Narongchai Tanadchangsaeng, deputy general manager of Suvarnabhumi airport, is worried that travellers will choose to bypass the airport if they cannot smoke inside the terminal.

Dr Hatai, however, believed the smoke-free policy would improve Suvarnabhumi's competitiveness with other airports.

"Most passengers opt for nicotine patches to get their fix," he said.

More international gates improvised

Bangkokpost Published: 2/12/2010 at 12:00 AM


Part of the concourse dedicated for domestic flights at Suvarnabhumi Airport is now being used to help relieve congestion for international flights during peak night hours, according to Airports of Thailand.

As of yesterday, Concourse A is now being used for overseas flights between 9 pm and 4 am, when there is no domestic traffic, and reverts to normal domestic functions in other hours.

Applying the "swing gate" concept to better manage capacity to cope with high late-night traffic, the practice ensures six additional gates for aircraft as large as Boeing B747-400s and Airbus A340-600s, the airport operator said.

International traffic between 11 pm and 1.30 am at Bangkok's main airport is usually heavy with the five concourses C-G with 39 contact gates becoming crowded, particularly with flights bound for Europe.

AoT introduced the swing-gate concept three years ago by opening Concourse B, normally used for domestic flights, for late-night international services.

Now there are a total of 51 contact gates available for international flights during peak night hours, enough to meet the rising air travel demand through one of Asia's busiest airports during the high season that started last month.

For its financial year that ended on Sept 30, 42 million passengers passed through Suvarnabhumi, according to AoT figures.

Suvarnabhumi Airport brightens image

Bangkokpost Published: 13/12/2010 at 12:00 AM


Poor lighting at Suvarnabhumi Airport's passenger terminal will soon be a thing of the past as Airports of Thailand Plc (AoT) is taking steps to deal with the frequent complaint.


All areas where people pass through will have double the current level of illumination.

It will be the second major lighting improvement following a minor adjustment that partly addressed the problems that earned Suvarnabhumi the nickname "the colossal dark den".

Developed in a collaboration with Chulalongkorn University, the state-controlled airport operator's lighting upgrade will cost 129 million baht.

In addition to increasing brightness to about 180 lux (equal to 1 lumen per square metre; 0.0929 foot candle), better arrangement and more energy-efficient bulbs will reduce power consumption.

Somchai Sawasdeepon, an AoT senior executive vice-president, believes the project, which is expected to be running in the first quarter of next year, will result in a 24% a year drop in power consumption for lighting.

This in turn would help the airport cut its monthly power bill to around 28 million baht from 30 million currently.

There will be more direct lighting with powerful bulbs illuminating the floors and less indirect lighting that reflects on ceilings, a frequent feature of the current layout.

The previous exercise undertaken shortly after the airport's opening in September 2006 involved turning many lightbulbs downward to the floors rather than upward to show a reflecting lighting pattern, a form popular in the western world and originally specified by Murphy/Jahn Architects, who designed the airport.

Tests conducted at several areas inside the terminal showed satisfactory results.

"There is greater illumination but not to the extent that it may irritate the eyes as in certain shopping malls," said Mr Somchai.

Though some people feel the current lighting is sufficient, most of the complaints came from Thais who prefer downward lighting to the reflecting variety, he explained.

Road lights on access roads to the terminal will also be equipped with dimmers to cut electricity consumption in the twilight period.

AoT expects the project to break even in four years and seven months based on power bill savings. The lighting improvement is being dubbed part of AoT's effort to make Suvarnabhumi one of the world's top 10 airports.

The airport has undergone significant improvements since its opening: revised signage, reduced waiting time in security lanes, additional toilets, new luggage trolleys, padding for steel seats, and the launch of the Airport Rail Link in August.
