There will be no major ceremonies for Don Muang International Airport when it closes on September 27 after more than eight decades of service.

Instead, officials will host a religious ceremony on the last day in honour of Field Marshall Prince  Chakrabpongse Bhuvanath of Phitsanulok, the founding father of aviation in Thailand.

On September 27, many airport employees will be involved with moving efforts, according to Airports of Thailand Public Co., Ltd. (AOT) President Chotisak Asapaviriya,  all essential equipment and gear is expected to be at the new facility by September 28 when Suvarnabhumi Airport takes over as Bangkok’s international airport.

AOT is closely coordinating the transport of equipment from Don Muang to Suvarnabhumi with all partner agencies, including the Aeronautical Radio of Thailand (AEROTHAI), the Department of Aviation and national carrier Thai Airways International (THAI).

For airlines that can not complete the move to Suvarnabhumi in time for the September 28 opening, the AOT will allow the companies to use storage facilities at Don Muang rent free for three months.
