A rail system connecting central Bangkok to the new international airport is 40 percent complete and is scheduled for completion in November 2007.

The Airport Link to Suvarnabhumi Airport will include a direct express train that will take 15 minutes from the Makkasan train station, which connects to the city’s mass transit subway system, said a statement from Airports of Thailand.

Another train will make eight stops throughout the city, taking 30 minutes to travel the 28 kilometers (17 miles) to the airport and linking with both the subway and Skytrain systems in Bangkok.

All international and domestic flights will move to Suvarnabhumi on Sept. 28. Some domestic flights will start service at the new airport on Sept. 15.

Suvarnabhumi is expected to accommodate up to 45 million passengers a year and take over most of the traffic from Bangkok’s aging and overcrowded Don Muang airport, which serves about 39 million passengers a year.
