Holidaymakers have been advised to arrive at Suvarnabhumi Airport two or three hours before their scheduled departure time during Christmas and New year holiday week due to an increase in the number of passengers. 

The number of visitors passing through Bangkok's international airport from Christmas Day to Jan 5, 2013 is expected to increase to 1.88 million, or 156,000 passengers a day, said Vilaiwan Nadvilai, director of Suvarnabhumi Airport.

The airport handled 1.84 million travellers at the same time last year.
