Suvarnabhumi phase 2 project to go to tender in April

Airports of Thailand plans to bid out the Bt62-billion project to build the second phase of Suvarnabhumi Airport in April and disclose the winner in August.

Construction is expected to be completed in 2016, when Suvarnabhumi's capacity will be boosted to 60 million passengers per year from the present 45 million a year, president Makin Petplai said Monday.

The political demonstrations have caused passenger throughput at airports under AOT management to expand by only 7.35 per cent in March, falling short of the 10-per cent target.
