Airports of Thailand (AoT), operator of the country’s commercial airports, said Tuesday that shuttle bus services between Bangkok’s two commercial airports will be provided for passengers with connecting flights starting next month.
AoT Vice President Somchai Sawasdipol said the shuttle bus services will be offered for passengers between Suvarnabhumi International Airport and Don Mueang Airport next month after low-cost carriers move their operations bases to the capital’s original international gateway Oct 1.
Mr Somchai, also director of Suvarnabhumi Airport, said four buses will be on service hourly from 6am to 10pm between Don Mueang-Suvarnabhumi airports.
He said the services will give passengers more convenience and that the buses will run on the expressway.
Passengers board buses at the first floor of Don Mueang Airport’s Terminal 1 and debark at the second floor of Suvarnabhumi’s Terminal Building, Gate 3, said the AoT executive.
Regarding relocating low-cost airlines to Don Mueang, Mr Somchai said the passenger loads at Suvarnabhumi are expected to decrease by 10,000 daily, from the total 130,000 passengers.
