Thailand’s Suvarnabhumi Airport was voted by over 12 million passengers worldwide as the world’s 10th best airport in a recent survey conducted by SKYTRAX, the world’s largest airport and airline review site.

Thailand’s Suvarnabhumi Airport was ranked as the world’s 10th best airport for its outstanding service under the category of airports handling 30-50 million passengers annually.

The results are based on 12 million passenger surveys completed during a 10-month survey period, from July 2011 to the beginning of 2012, covering over 385 airports.

Earlier, Suvarnabhumi Airport had been dubbed by the Airports Council International (ACI) as the world’s 7th best airport of 2011 in the category of 40 million passenger-size.

1Incheon International Airport1 Thailand’s THB 62.5-billion project to expand Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok is likely to start this year, hoping for an expected passenger capacity handling to increase by 15 – 60 million

Somchai Sawasdeepon, general manager of Suvarnabhumi Airport said that the project management consultant will finalise the design and choosing contractors to begin the project.The expansion of Suvarnabhumi, which was supposed to commence soon after the airport was opened in September 2006, has been delayed largely by the government’s inability to formulate a long-term airport policy. It has been debating what to do with Don Mueang airport and whether the facility should be used to take the pressure off Suvarnabhumi.
