Don Muang Airport to reopen on schedule on March 25th

Bangkok’s old airport, Don Muang is due to reopen on Sunday March 25th after being restricted to private and charter flights for over 6 months, since September 28th. However, it has now lost its privileged code name, no longer designated BKK, which has now been taken over by Suvarnabhumi, Don Muang’s new designation is DMK. Ms Kalaya Pakakrong, the Acting President of Airports of Thailand (AoT) urged passengers to check the codes on their tickets to avoid confusion.

While initially handling domestic flights of the Thai Airways International, Nok Air and One-Two-Go, the return to international traffic handling has not been ruled out for the future, although it’s likely that this will only apply to international flights operating within the region, according to Ms Kulya.

On Saturday, the two no-frills airlines, One-Two-Go and Nok Air, will test the Don Muang services diverting some of their evening inbound flights from Suvarnabhumi. The situation at Don Muang will be evaluated by the AoT after six months, Ms Kalaya further said; the outcome being crucial to the continued operation of Don Muang.

Don Muang Airport has a total handling capacity of 11 million passengers. The estimated number of flights from Don Muang is 140 flights per day, while between 18,000 and 20,000 passengers daily can be handled. Ms Kalaya said it was expected that some 5 million passengers from the three airlines would use the airport.

The diversion of flights to Don Muang has essentially been done to relieve the pressure on Suvarnabhumi and allow the much needed repairs to its runways, taxiways and other problems to be sorted out. Suvarnabhumi, has almost reached its full capacity of 45 million passengers a year, due to the attraction of the budget carriers.

Don Muang’s General Manager, Flight Lieutenant Pinit Saraithong, has stated that all facilities are ready to serve passengers, including the terminal, airline offices, security, parking lots, taxi service, restaurants and souvenir shops. He said ”Everything has been tested”. According to an AoT official, security will be strict at Don Muang with police sniffer dogs and air force bomb experts employed. Apparently, 422 security cameras have been installed.
