Within the next two years, the government plans to make Suvarnabhumi Airport, which opens later this month, the best airport in the world.

Deputy Prime Minister and Industry Minister Suriya Jungrungreangkit said Wednesday that the airport meets multiple international standards and criteria, including modern administrative and security systems, and ample duty free.

His statements were made while presiding over the opening of both the Suvarnabhumi Airport Media Centre and the International Broadcasting Centre at the Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport hotel.

He also emphasised that tourism will improve following the airport’s opening on September 28.

“Suvarnabhumi Airport is the right answer to promote Thailand as the regional centre, especially for tourism. The National Economic and Social Development Board predict annual revenue generated by tourism will total one trillion baht within five years,” said Suriya.

Suvarnabhumi Airport is a new chapter in Asian and global aviation, according to the deputy PM, because it confirms Thailand’s potential to become a regional hub.

“It is one of the most modern airports in the world with multiple distinctive features, including beautiful architecture and a great location. It will serve as a centre for connecting flights to different parts of the world. In short, it is ready to be both passenger and cargo hub,” said Suriya.

He added that the media centre is crucial for disseminating information about the airport and reinforcing it readiness after a 40-year wait, 21 governments and 14 prime ministers. (TNA)
