Suvarnabhumi New Bangkok Airport Attractions
Thailandâ€™s tourism related agencies on Monday (1 June 2009) launched 15 special tour packages in Bangkok and its environs to attract transfer passengers making stopovers of 12 hours or less at Bangkokâ€™s Suvarnabhumi Airport, in an attempt to boost the countryâ€™s tourism industry.
The campaign which targets transit passenger has been jointly launched by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), the Airports of Thailand (AoT), the Immigration Bureau, Thai Airways International (THAI), and the Association of Thai Travel Agents (ATTA).
TAT chairman Veerasak Kowsurat said that the campaign is aimed at boosting the countryâ€™s economy and increasing local incomes.
The seven-million-baht marketing scheme would make air travellers feel very impressed with Thai culture and tradition, said Narongchai Tanachangsaeng, the airport’s deputy general manager.
Special activities under the theme “Suvarnabhumi: The Beauty Given and the Impression Received” would help increase the state-run company’s revenue. The authority projects 45-46 million passengers will enter Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang airports in 2007.
Dining is one of the new airport’s highlight features with a range of sophisticated sports bars, trendy restaurants and world-class gastronomy available.
Thanks to the Thai sanook (Fun) attitude, the new airport has unintentionally become the city’s newest and, of course, biggest recreational site.
While the airport terminal lures crowds of curious, fun-loving visitors who want to check out the modern facilities, departing Boeings grab people’s attention just like spaceships blasting off. And the airport’s futuristically designed building itself has become a favourite backdrop for streetside picnics for many locals.
