i think i should not used the word Wujiaba.

anyway Kunming currently has an old airport is still in operation, but another brand new airport is under construction.

In my opinion, it will not directly give a threat in first 3 years. but its hardly to make sure that Survarnabhumi still ahead new Kunming airport after 3 years to 5 years time.

B163bn for Suvarnabhumi's expansion

Published: 29/07/2011 at 03:42 PM

The executive board of Airports of Thailand (AoT) has approved a 163 billion baht budget for the expansion of Suvarnabhumi airport, the chairman, Teerapol Noprampa, said on Friday.

The meeting agreed with the “single airport” concept favoured by the International Civil Aviation Organisation. It had approved a plan to expand Suvarnabhumi airport to enable it to handle 103 million people a year by 2024, he said.

Mr Teerapol said the expansion plan is in three phases.

The first stage, from 2013-2016, covers construction of a domestic passenger terminal, a third runway, carpark building for domestic passengers and and internal linking road system. The projected cost is 21.8 billion baht.

The second phase, from 2017-2020, is costed at 43.4 billion baht and includes expansion of both domestic and foreign passenger terminals and the construction of a fourth runway.

The third phase, from 2020-2024, with a total budget of 98.3 billion baht, is for the construction of a fifth runway, additional passenger terminals and the expansion of car parking space.

BKK climbs in global ranking

Published: 9/08/2011 at 12:00 AM

Suvarnabhumi Airport has moved into the world's 10 busiest airports in terms of international passengers, underscoring its importance as a global hub.


The gateway airport, code-named BKK, was 10th in the 2010 global ranking by Airports Council International (ACI), putting it in the same league as world leaders such as London, Paris, Hong Kong and Dubai.

A total of 31.41 million international passengers went through Suvarnabhumi last year, up 9% from the previous year's record, or just 750,000 below Tokyo Narita, which held the No. 9 position.

Meanwhile, Phuket Airport ranked eighth in the world's 25 fastest-growing airports last year in the category of those with at least 5 million passengers a year, due to a 26.5% rise in passenger throughput in 2010 to touch 7.31 million.

The ranking of Suvarnabhumi by ACI should put to rest doubts and debates over whether it is a key part of the global air transport network, industry analysts said.

Montreal-based ACI monitors air traffic at 1,318 airports in 157 countries.

Suvarnabhumi was not one of the world's 10 busiest airports in total passenger throughput (domestic and international), nor was its closest rival, Singapore.

Listed in that category were, in order: Atlanta, Beijing, Chicago, London, Tokyo Haneda, Los Angeles, Paris, Dallas/Forth Worth, Frankfurt and Denver.After an 18.95% jump in international passenger traffic in the first half of this year to reach 18.79 million, and with a continued increase in the second, Suvarnabhumi has the potential to move up in the 2011 ACI ranking for international throughput.

ACI said there was a strong rebound in traffic through the world's airports in 2010 from the two-year industry slump. Global passenger traffic rose 6.6%, topping one billion for the first time. Cargo volume hit a record 91 million tonnes with 15.3% growth.

Worldwide airport passenger numbers rose in all six regions surveyed. The Middle East (+12%), Asia-Pacific (+11.3%), Africa (+9.5%) and Latin America-Caribbean (+13.2%) showed high growth, while Europe and North America grew more robustly than before.

Worldwide domestic traffic increased 5.8%, and international traffic rose 7.7%. Aircraft movements rose 1.1% to 74 million.

Some 69% of airports worldwide registered positive passenger growth at an average of 8.6%, while 30% of airports lost traffic at an average of -4.1%.

Minister supports airport expansion

Published: 30/08/2011 at 12:00 AM

Transport Minister ACM Sukampol Suwannathat yesterday gave the nod to Airports of Thailand Plc (AoT)'s plan to carry out the expansion of Suvarnabhumi airport including fast-track construction of a new domestic terminal.

The minister yesterday expressed support for the multi-billion-baht expansion to address congestion at Bangkok's main international airport, which is operating beyond its capacity with crowding expected only to grow worse in the coming years.

At a meeting with AoT executives yesterday, ACM Sukampol agreed that construction of a new domestic terminal capable of handling 20 million passengers a year at an estimated cost of 9.2 billion baht should proceed immediately.

The larger phase-two master plan, estimated at 62 billion baht, which would raise the airport's capacity to 65 million passengers a year, should also be undertaken in parallel.

"We received good signals from the minister, who wants to see this vital project proceed without further delays," AoT acting president Niran Teeranartsin said yesterday.

The proposed domestic terminal should tackle the more immediate problem of congestion, as it could become operational in the next five years, while the phase-two expansion should deal with long-haul traffic demand.

Passenger volume through Suvarnabhumi, which was designed to process 45 million passengers a year, is likely to reach 47 million this year, Mr Niran said.

The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) have already advised AoT to implement the expansion of Suvarnabhumi to serve as the country's sole main air hub.

AoT has moved to tackle the passenger congestion problem by having some of the domestic gates serve international flights after 9pm when domestic flights cease.

At the same time, it is building a new security checkpoint zone, covering an area of 3,000 square metres, to help speed up passenger processing and free up the area of the existing zone for other passenger-service purposes.

Congestion at the airport is about passengers, not flights, as the airport is capable of handling 76 flights per hour while about 56 flights are used, said Mr Niran.

The two expansion projects are part of the overall airport enlargement that would see Suvarnabhumi raise its annual passenger handling capacity to 103 million - 73 million international and 30 million domestic - by 2024 at an estimated cost of 163 billion baht.

The overall expansion blueprint endorsed by the AoT board on July 28 and much in line with ICAO and IATA recommendations also envisages the transfer of domestic flight operations from Don Mueang Airport, which now caters to budget carriers Nok Air and Orient Thai, to Suvarnabhumi by 2016.

The expansion includes the construction of three additional runways from two at present, subsequent enlargement of domestic and international terminals and improvements to parking bays, car parks and other airport infrastructure.

Since I always thought that Suvarnabhumi would be finalised at only four runways, i din't know that a fifth runway was added.

AoT says facelift will unclog terminals

Published: 20/09/2011 at 12:00 AM

Security checkpoints at Suvarnabhumi are undergoing dramatic changes under a 155-million-baht makeover designed to remove the bottlenecks choking traffic at one of Asia's busiest airports.


When construction of the new "centralised security screen checkpoints" is completed in March of next year, security screening for outgoing passengers will get a significant boost.

The service area will more than triple to 3,600 square metres from 1,020 currently, and the number of X-ray machines will nearly double to 30 from 16 now, thus enabling 7,200 passengers per hour to be processed, up from 3,840 at present.

The new checkpoints are part of facilities and measures being adopted to more immediately address the crowding at Suvarnabhumi, which was designed to process 45 million passengers a year but will probably hit 47 million this year.

Airports of Thailand Plc (AoT) is struggling to remove bottlenecks and streamline its operations, as the airport's delayed expansion has yet to begin.

"These are short-term measures taken to enable us to cope with rising congestion until the expansion is ready in the next several years, " said AoT's acting president Nirandra Theeranartsin. "That is the best we can do now."

The Suvarnabhumi expansion has faced obstacles, but AoT is pushing to fast-track the construction of a new domestic terminal with the capacity to handle 20 million passengers a year at an estimated cost of 9.2 billion baht.

AoT hopes to kick off the project next year for completion in five years, as the larger phase-two master plan _ estimated at 62 billion baht, which would raise the airport's capacity to 65 million passengers a year _ is subject to a review.

The new facilities will be built on double-deck steel structures rising 5.6 metres in the check-in/departure hall on the terminal's fourth floor, above the current passport control counters.

The upper floor of the new structures, accessed by escalators, is dedicated to security screening. Upon completing screening, checked passengers will head down to the lower floor on escalators for passport control.

That flow is a reversal from the current procedure, in which passengers first pass through the immigration lines before entering the security screening zones, a pattern regarded as less efficient.

The new checkpoints, one located on the airport's eastern wing and the other on its western side, will be clearly visible on the fourth floor.

They will be equipped with "smart queue" systems with real-time read-outs of the passenger being processed and the wait time for a passenger to be screened. AoT aims to have one new checkpoint online by year-end.

Suvarnabhumi overcapacity worsens

Published: 4/10/2011 at 12:00 AM

Latest figures confirmed traffic through Suvarnabhumi Airport has well surpassed its design capacity and congestion will only get worse in the coming years.

Passenger traffic for the fiscal year, which ended last month, exceeded 47 million. The airport was designed to handle 45 million a year, said Airports of Thailand Plc (AoT), the majority state-owned airport operator.

Traffic is expected to steadily increase over time, yet there have been delays in airport expansion that should have been carried out right after Suvarnabhumi became operational five years ago.

AoT projections are for passenger traffic through one of Southeast Asia's busiest airports to rise to 49.4 million for 2012, 52.1 million in 2013, 54.9 million in 2013, 57.8 million in 2014, 60.7 million in 2015 and 68 million in 2016.

Traffic jumped from 37.05 million in fiscal year 2009 to 42.49 million in 2010.

AoT acting president Somchai Sawasdeepon acknowledged it has been struggling to deal with the congestion but has tried to remove bottlenecks to streamline traffic. A meaningful resolution will only come when the multi-billion-baht expansion is complete years from now.

"Expansion of the airport should have been carried out years ago," he noted.

AoT is pushing to expedite the construction of a new domestic terminal at the site with the capacity to handle 20 million passengers a year for an estimated 9.2 billion baht. It hopes to kick off the project next year with construction to be completed in five years. The larger phase-two master plan, estimated at 62 billion baht, which would raise the airport's capacity to 65 million passengers a year, is still subject to review.

The airport's cargo capacity faces no such worries. For the year ending last month, Suvarnabhumi handled 1.24 million tonnes of cargo, up from 980,000 tonnes last year.

The cargo terminal can handle 3 million tonnes a year.

Suvarnabhumi Airport ready for floods

Suvarnabhumi Airport places high confidence in its flood-prevention scheme, with the 3.5-metre-high and 37-metre wide earthern dyke and sheet piles to slow the currents as well as other preventive measures.

Airports of Thailand Senior Executive Vice President Somchai Sawasdeepon said that the airport also has a team of officers to monitor water levels at six flood gates including Lat Krabang, Saen Saeb and Samrong. Airlines operating at the airport are notified of water level every three hours, to ensure smooth aviation operations in Thailand despite the flooding in Don Mueang Airport.

Yesterday, the airport accommodated 945 flights, a new daily record since the opening.

Somchai yesterday briefed Japanese experts, brought in by Japan International Credit Agency which funded the airport’s construction, on the preparation steps. JICA’s experts were informed about the airport’s cooperation with all related agencies like the Highways Department and the Royal Irrigation Department.


The team of Japanese experts also received a briefing from the Flood Relief Operations Centre as well as Bangkok Metro Plc, the subway operator.
