Suvarnabhumi Airport’s Integrated Air Traffic Control System

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2007

With one of the tallest air traffic control towers in the world and one of the most automated Air Traffic Control Systems with the latest in safety equipment, Bangkok’s new airport , Suvarnabhumi, is poised for the kind of rapid traffic growth expected in Asia during the next few decades.

It’s not that Suvarnabhumi Airport hasn’t had its problems. Its $3.8-billion construction cost has been a matter of political controversy since a military coup last September ousted the elected government that conceived the project. And runway cracks, though repairable, and other less publicized defects have been spotlighted by critics intent on proving that the previous government made a mess of things. Still, the green-field facility has room for more runways in the future, and it has the potential to become one of the main aviation hubs in the region.

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.
