Bangkok Suvarnabhumi (BKK) Airport

Bangkok Suvarnabhumi BKK Airport Overview

Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport BKK – or simply BSIA - opened in 2006 with a new name, following the partial closure of its former airport, Bangkok Don Muang International (presently offering only limited domestic flights). The name of Suvarnabhumi translates into the 'Golden Land'. BSIA has consistently received high ranks among large world airports, and calls itself the ‘Airport of Smiles’. It can handle 76 flight operations per hour, and its air-traffic control tower is presently the tallest (132 meters) in the world.
Skytrax voters have declared Bangkok Airport as being number 10 of the World's Best Airports.

BKK Airport is located in Racha Thewa, in the Bang Phli district of Samut Prakan province, 30 km east of Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand. It is directly accessible via the Bangkok Chon Buri Motorway (Hwy 7) or from either the Lat Krabang Rd. or the Bangna-Trat Rd., and has five access and entrance routes. The new 28.6 km mostly elevated Airport Rail Link parallel to Motorway 7 and the Si Rat Expressway gets you quickly to the Airport.
With two very long runways and servicing over 50M travelers, Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport is a hub for Thai Airways International, Bangkok Airways, Orient Thai Airlines and Thai AirAsia, and is served by a myriad of national and international, regular & low-cost airlines and charters, offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.

On-Airport accommodations include, (a) the 600-room Novotel hotel at  Bangkok Airport, located above the underground rail link station, in front of the passenger terminal.  (b) Fully-equipped ‘Day Rooms’ are located on Level 3 near gates A1-A6; and on level 4 near gates G1-G5.

The passenger terminal complex
at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport has presently only one large main terminal, flanked by concourses A through G, which surround the main terminal and its multi-level parking garage in the shape of an H.

Future Airport Developments: 
New Airport Improvement Phase 2 projects, to be completed by 2016, include: main Terminal Extension at its east side by 14,580 sq.meters , new Midfield Satellite 1 with Apron and 700-meter tunnel to the Main Terminal; new carpark & office building;  and a public utility system. A  third runway is also to be built.
