BANGKOK: The Airports of Thailand (AOT) says it has prepared commercial activities to compensate for an approximate loss of over 90 million baht from reclaiming commercial and office areas at Suvarnabhumi Airport and Phuket International Airport.

According to the agency’s letter to the Stock Exchange of Thailand, the reclamation, which will come into effect on July 1, aims to improve and develop facilities at the two airports to meet aviation standards and increase passenger satisfaction.

This move also aims to comply with aviation consultancy firm Skytrax’s suggestion on improvement and development of Suvarnabhumi Airport to meet passengers’ expectations.

It is also aimed at promoting the airport to being among the world’s top 50 airports by 2025 and among the top 20 within the next five years.

AOT will reclaim certain commercial areas under King Power Duty Free, and certain office areas of government agencies, namely the Immigration Bureau, the Thai Customs Department and the Revenue Department for improvement and development.

This will free up approximately 1,097.14 sq m areas inside Concourses and Midfield Satellite 1 at Suvarnabhumi Airport, and approximately 491.22 sq m areas inside the International Passenger Terminal at Phuket International Airport. — The Nation/ANN
