Commuters satisfied with test run of airport link


BANGKOK, Oct 7 (TNA) – The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) began its trial run of the airport link railway Wednesday, connecting Makkasan railway station in Bangkok and Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Samut Prakan province.

A large number of the prospective passengers showed interest in traveling on the test run of the 28.6 kilometre route Wednesday, according to the authorities, but full-scale commercial operation is not expected until April next year.

SRT governor Yuthana Thapcharoen said that the test run on Wednesday went smoothly. He expressed confidence that it would be well used by commuters when it starts full operation.

Most passengers said the airport link railway was convenient, similar to the BTS Sky Train, but the airport link (Express Line) is faster taking only 15 minutes from Makkasan to Suvarnabhumi Airport. They said they will definitely use the airport link service when they travel to the airport. (TNA)

German firm picked to run airport rail link

Bangkokpost Published: 8/10/2009 at 12:00 AM


An overseas company will operate the express rail link to Suvarnabhumi Airport for the first few years of its operation, the State Railway of Thailand says.

The SRT union has opposed a plan to set up a subsidiary to operate the service, so an overseas contractor would be hired instead, SRT governor Yuthana Thapcharoen said yesterday.

DB International GmbH, which is installing the operating system for the railway link and training staff, would be hired to run the service as well, he said.

The link is scheduled to open in April. Mr Yuthana said the SRT would need over 500 million baht from the government as a start-up fund to run the Airport Rail Link.

The sum will cover management costs, insurance for trains and passengers, and the cost of running the railway stations.

The governor was among passengers who went on an unofficial trial run of the rail link yesterday. The SRT handed out free tickets to the public.

Further trial runs will be held on Oct 14, 21 and 28 and Nov 4. Daily trial runs will be held from Dec 5 to April.

Mr Yuthana said passengers on the test run from Makkasan station to the airport gave the service a thumbs up.
