Traffic at the airport is further expected to go up by about 20 per cent in 2016, Prasong Poonthaneat, chairman of government-controlled operator Airports of Thailand (AOT), said.
The new terminal has taken the airport’s passenger capacity from 18.5 million to 30 million annually, while actual traffic has shot up by an incredible 85 per cent between 2013 and 2015 to reach 28.8 million.
The spurt in passenger traffic has also enabled AOT to register record net profit to the tune of 18.7 billion baht in the financial year ended September.
AOT, mainly owned by the Thai government, is contemplating to initiate more steps to renovate the six airports, including Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok.
