Korean Air to use A380 in Bangkok

Published: 25/05/2011 at 12:00 AM


Korean Air is becoming the second airline to serve Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport with the Airbus' A380 superjumbo

The scheduled start in July of Korean Air's A380 service to Bangkok would come two years after Emirates began flying the A380 to Thailand in mid-2009.

Bangkok will be the third port of call for Korean Air's A380s, which are due to start maiden flights from Incheon International Airport near Seoul to Tokyo's Narita and Hong Kong international airports next month.

In a later stage, the airline will introduce A380 non-stop long-haul services from Seoul to North America and Europe.

The Korean flag carrier yesterday took delivery of its first double-decker jet from Airbus's Toulouse plant in France.

Korean Air is acquiring a total of 10 A380s; the first five are to be delivered by the end of 2011, with the additional five received by 2014.

According to Korean Air's Bangkok office, the A380 will be used for one of its twice-daily services between Bangkok and Seoul.

The A380 will be deployed on departing flight KE 652 at 10.40 pm, while the later flight KE 654 at 11.45 pm will be operated either by a Boeing B777 or Airbus A330.

Korean Air does not plan to impose a surcharge over normal fare to take advantage of the novelty of the world's large commercial aircraft, they said.

Korean Air is configuring its A380s with an all-premium upper deck that accommodates 94 180-degree full-flat sleeper business-class seats, while the lower deck is outfitted with 12 ultra-luxurious first-class suites and 301 economy-class seats.

The deployment of the A380 on the Bangkok route is meant to provide additional capacity to meet the growing demand on the city-pair.

"In terms of total seat count, the numbers do not increase significantly due to the deployment of A380, but the real increase is in the numbers on the premium seats which the superjumbo will offer," an executive of Korean Air's Bangkok office pointed out.

Thai Airways International is next in line to start A380 service through Bangkok.

THAI is due to receive the first three A380-800s in 2012 and another three in 2013. All will operate from Suvarnabhumi.

About suvarnabhumi expansion, found that on Bloombrerg yesterday:


Airports of Thailand Plans 72.5 Billion-Baht Expansion (1)
2011-06-06 05:00:59.953 GMT


By Anuchit Nguyen
June 6 (Bloomberg) -- Airports of Thailand Pcl plans to
invest about 72.5 billion baht ($2.4 billion) over the next
seven years to almost double passenger capacity at Bangkok’s
Suvarnabhumi airport.
The state-controlled company will spend 62.5 billion baht
by 2017 to expand the airport’s capacity to handle international
travelers, and about 10 billion baht on infrastructure for
domestic passengers, the company’s acting President Nirandra
Theeranartsin told investors in Bangkok today.
The expansion will increase annual capacity at the
country’s biggest international airport to about 80 million
passengers, from 45 million, Nirandra said.
Bangkok-based Airports of Thailand will fund the plan by
selling bonds in Thailand and borrowing from local banks, said
Supaporn Burapakusolsri, senior executive vice president for
planning and finance.

Suvarnabhumi passenger traffic, flight frequency up

By The Nation Published on June 9, 2011


Passenger traffic at Suvarnabhumi Airport rose 9 per cent in the first seven months of the 2011 fiscal year to 40 million, compared with the same period last year, according to Airports of Thailand.

In the OctobertoApril period, flight frequency also increased 11 per cent, to 258,457 flights.

Though May is the start of low season, passenger traffic jumped 39 per cent year on year, while flight freฌquency increased 13 per cent.

AOT told analysts at a meeting yesterday that doubledigit growth in air traffic was likely this year, so long as there was no serious political unrest.

Bualuang Securities said in a research note that AOT was selectฌing a project management consultฌant for the second phase of Suvarnabhumi Airport. Groundbreaking is expected in mid2012 and completion in 2017.

In the second phase, Bt62.5 bilฌlion is earmarked for a midfield conฌcourse and passenger terminal, which will increase passenger capacฌity by 15 million, from 45 million now.

AOT told analysts that it would borrow 24 per cent of the financing for the investment while 76 per cent would come from operational cash flows.

As Suvarnabhumi Airport is expected to be fully utilised by the end of this year, a new domestic terminal with capacity of 20 million passengers per year, to be completed by 2014, is a mitigation plan while waiting for completion of Phase 2. However, this project is subject to Cabinet's approval.

AOT also plans a Bt5.8billion investment to expand the capacity of Phuket International Airport, to accommodate 6 million more pasฌsengers. That investment should be completed in 2013.

Airport traffic rebounds

Published: 21/06/2011 at 12:00 AM

Passenger traffic through Thailand's main airports surged nearly 16% in the first five months, reflecting a return to robust growth from political turmoil.

Combined passenger numbers passing through the six airports, including the gateway Suvarnabhumi, reached 28.66 million from January to May this year, up from 24.72 million recorded in the same period last year.

The 15.90% increase was doubled the normal annual growth rate of 7-8% projected by Airports of Thailand Plc (AoT).

There was a marked recovery in international passenger traffic during the period, a year-on-year increase of 18.19% to 18.16 million, as travel confidence returned while global economic recovery continued, according to figures sourced from AoT, the airports operator.

In particular, there was a surge in numbers of leisure passengers from key markets such as China, India and Russia, who returned in droves as security issues arising from the political unrest passed, said Somchai Sawasdeepon, an AoT senior executive vice-president.

Domestic passenger traffic grew more slowly, rising 12.13% to 10.49 million, partly due to airlines expanding their domestic network and frequencies.

Total aircraft movements increased in tandem with passenger throughput, growing 14.07% year-on-year to 188,496, comprising 105,628 for international flights (up 15.15%) and 82,868 domestic (up 12.72%).

However, total freight pushed through the AoT-operated airports grew more slowly than passenger numbers, registering a 3.18% year-on-year increase to 587,037 tonnes, mirroring a slowdown in global economic growth.

International air cargo inched up 2.74% year-on-year to 539,065 tonnes while domestic volume rose 8.43% to 47,972 tonnes.

Unless there is a dramatic change in the political landscape following the election, AoT expects passenger volume passing through its airports this year to exceed last year's level of 66 million.

AoT proposes domestic Suvarnabhumi terminal

Published: 23/06/2011 at 12:00 AM


Airports of Thailand Plc (AoT) is in favour of building a new terminal dedicated to domestic flights as a fast-track way to deal with crowding problems at Suvarnabhumi Airport.

The AoT board yesterday agreed with recommendations made by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), a UN agency, for the construction of a domestic terminal capable of handling 20 million passengers a year.

The proposed terminal, which could be up and running in 44 months after receiving approval, is regarded as a possible early solution to the congestion at Thailand's gateway airport.

According to AoT, Suvarnabhumi last year handled 42.78 million passengers and this year's volume is expected to reach 46.78 million, exceeding its designed capacity of 45 million.

But AoT acting president Niran Teeranartsin noted that the board had not yet approved a new terminal, estimated to cost 9.13 billion baht.

The board asked management to see how the ICAO's recommendation to build a domestic terminal could be aligned with the broader Suvarnabhumi airport expansion approved earlier by the cabinet.

In other words, management should see whether the master expansion plan, costing 62 billion baht, needs to be revised by taking into account the future role of Don Mueang airport, now serving only two domestic budget carriers, which remains an unresolved issue.

The proposed domestic terminal should be able to handle passengers until 2019, AoT said.

AoT management was assigned to report its findings to the board next month when it will decide on an expansion proposal to government.

The expansion endorsed by the cabinet in August last year envisages the construction of a satellite passenger terminal to be located about 800 metres south of the existing terminal and linked by an underground automated people mover, a rail system used by leading airports around the world.

A concourse would accommodate 28 aircraft including A380 superjumbo jets, and there will also be new taxiways, buildings for airline offices and car parking.

That expansion, which would lift the passenger handling capacity of Bangkok's prime airport to 60 million a year, will not be completed until 2017.

AOT sees record passenger numbers

By THE NATION Published on June 30, 2011


Airports of Thailand expects record passenger numbers at all six of its airports this fiscal year, with 46 million anticipated for Suvarnabhumi Airport alone.

Niran Thiranartsin, acting president of AOT, yesterday said the overall number of passengers would hit 65 million by September 30, when the 2011 fiscal year ends.

AOT, which celebrates its 32th anniversary tomorrow, operates Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang, Phuket, Hat Yai, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai airports.

"In the first eight months of the fiscal year [October to May], the number of passengers hit 44.77 million. The airports also accommodated a total of 295,000 flights. Our anticipation is that the annualised number of passengers will be as high as 65 million, with 418,000 flights, representing increases of 13 per cent and 8 per cent respectively from the previous year," he said.

He added that as Suvarna-bhumi would handle an estimated 46.28 million passengers this year against its capacity of 45 million, it was vital to proceed with the Bt9-billion investment in a domestic passenger terminal, as suggested by the International Civil Aviation Organisation.

The extra terminal, requiring 44 months for construction, would accommodate 20 million passengers per annum, boosting Suvarnabhumi's capacity to 65 million.

AOT also plans the construction of an international passenger terminal at Phuket International Airport, along with facility improvement, as the airport is expected to handle 7.96 million passengers this year against its designed capacity of 6.5 million.

Currently in the design stage, the new Green Building will increase the capacity to 12.5 million once it is completed in 2014, Niran said.

Listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand, AOT reported a net profit of Bt2.4 billion for the period from October to March.

Kunming hardly has any international connections. Don't think it's a direct threat to Bangkok yet.
