Major expansion plan for Don Mueang

- +

Don Mueang may be expanded and reopened as a full service airport to rival Suvarnabhumi by 2015, Airports of Thailand vice chairman Pongsak Semson said. 

AoT is renovating terminals 1 and 2 at Don Mueang and the runways to expand its handling capacity to 30 million passengers a year within two years.

Don Mueang currently operates only terminal 1 for budget airlines for domestic and international flights on point to point service, to ease the pressure on crowded Suvarnabhumi, which was opened in 2006 and now handles more passengers than its planned annual 45 million capacity.
