Air traffic through Thailand's six key airports registered double-digit growth last year, driven largely by the surge in international tourism flows and the proliferation of low-cost airlines (LCCs). 

Combined passenger throughput last year rose by 11.9% year-on-year to 74.3 million, while total take-offs and landings grew by 10.5% to 496,749, according to preliminary figures released yesterday by Airports of Thailand Plc.
