Thailand opens Asia’s largest airport

Monday, October 2nd, 2006

REUTERS- Thailand’s new international airport – the largest in Asia – has opened for flights in a bid to rival Hong Kong and Singapore as a transport hub.

Most things ran smoothly at the giant US$4bn ($6bn) airport, Suvarnabhumi, on its first days of operation last week although a computer glitch did strand some cargo and baggage.

The computer system was unable to link to the Thai Customs Department meaning some cargo and baggage could not clear customs, leaving shippers and some travellers frustrated.

The man in charge of the new airport, which will handle 45 million passengers a year, is Chotisak Asapaviriya.
