Suvarnabhumi » Trial for International Flights completed successfullySunday, July 20th, 2008
Four international flights conducted Friday (September 1, 2006) at Suvarnabhumi Airport as trial runs for the new facility were completed successfully, according to officials.
Earlier in the day, two flights departed safely from Suvarnabhumi to Singapore and Hong Kong and landed at their respective destinations later in the day. A second set of planes were used on a return trip from the same locations, arriving in the capital in the afternoon.
The tests were being conducted prior to the commencement of the new airport’s international services on Sept 28.
Officials used the opportunity on Thursday to test the simultaneous use of both runways during incoming and departing flights. After landing in Bangkok, passengers went through normal international arrival procedures.
Mr Chotisak Asapaviriya, President of Airports of Thailand Public Co., Ltd. (AOT), said the take-off and landing procedures were so smooth that the pilots could not have done a better job.
Next week officials will test the land transportation system between Bangkok’s downtown areas and the new airport. The AOT will accelerate public relations campaigns to disseminate information about the airport commute.
As for complaints that travelling to Suvarnabhumi may be difficult because the subway is yet in service, Chotisak said it should not cause too much of a problem with other mass transportation options available.
He cited South Korea’s Incheon International Airport, which is 65 km from Seoul’s city centre and does not have an electric train service. (MCOT)
