Monday, August 27th, 2007

Airports of Thailand (AOT) plans to develop 1,000 rai of vacant land at Suvarnabhumi Airport into a commercial complex containing a three-star hotel, exhibition hall and shops.

The Bt10-billion site is located in the airport’s northeastern corner, close to the transportation terminal and some petrol stations.

Construction is expected to start early next year on the 300-room hotel and the exhibition hall next to it, said Narongchai Tanadchang-saeng, deputy general manager for business development.

The retail area will consist of local-product shops, restaurants, spa and massage facilities and a food court. A golf course is also on the drawing board.

Cabinet cancels Suvarnabhumi metropolis project

Sunday, April 8th, 2007

Military-installed cabinet accepted the Interior Ministry’s request to withdraw the draft bill on the proposed establishment of a special administrative zone around Suvarnabhumi airport from scrutiny by the Council of State.

The move comes because it was the Thaksin government-initiated project and was blasted in a series of recent polls conducted by the military installed’s ministry.

Deputy military’s government spokeswoman Netpreeya Chumchaiyo said the request was accepted after the ministry forwarded the findings and recommendations of a series of surveys on the draft bill.
