Airports of Thailand to study Don Muang as a 2nd Bangkok international airport

Friday, March 23rd, 2007

Airports of Thailand (AOT) has been assigned to study the feasibility of turning Don Muang Airport into a second international airport for Bangkok, though the first attempt was foiled after strong protests from international airlines.

According to Kulya Pakakrong, acting president of AOT, which is preparing Don Muang Airport ahead of its reopening this Sunday, the Transport Ministry has ordered the company to carry out the study. The ministry wants the company to operate two international airports in Bangkok.

Thai Airways, Nok Air, One-Two-Go and Orient Thai, will resume services at Don Muang on March 25, 2007

Wednesday, March 21st, 2007

Thai Airways International (THAI) on Sunday trucked part of ground service equipment back to Don Muang Airport (Former Bangkok International Airport) for a March 25 resumption of domestic flights from the old airport.
Thai Airways spent two hours in moving equipment loaded on 27 trailers and two crane trucks from Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok’s neighboring province of Samut Prakan to Don Muang.

On March 24, or only one-day before commercial domestic direct flights resume at Don Muang, Thai Airways will move smaller equipment including passenger transport vehicles and luggage handling equipment to Don Muang.

Sound-proof house for people living near Suvarnabhumi Airport

Monday, March 19th, 2007

A design for a sound-proof house for people living near Suvarnabhumi airport has earned three Rangsit University (RSU) students an architecture award. They say their design would keep out 60% of the noise. The winners are Pichaya Prasertwong, Jaruek Taweesri-amnuay and Intat Wejsan from RSU’s architecture faculty.

They beat 37 other teams in a contest for a sound-proofed house organised by King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Lat Krabang (KMITL).

The winning design has double-glazed walls which serve the double purpose of plane-viewing pleasure and a noise barrier.

It also incorporates the latest noise reduction technology employed at stations used by Japan’s Shinkansen high-speed bullet trains.
