Million-dollar toilets to be added at Suvarnabhumi Bangkok Airport

Tuesday, October 24th, 2006

Suvaranabhumi Airport operators are to take space from Customs, security and Thai Airways International to build new toilets for passengers at a cost of 40 million baht (more than $1 million).

Airports of Thailand President Chotisak Asapaviriya acknowledged the scathing criticism of passengers and the public over the lack of toilets.

He said AOT intends to invest 40 million baht to build more toilet facilities because Suvarnabhumi has fared poorly on this issue. Over 200 toilets for both men and women will be added, he said. But he estimated passengers and airport staff would have to hold for about four months to await completion of construction.
