Plans for 3rd Suvarnabhumi Runway, Domestic Terminal to go to Cabinet

BANGKOK, Aug 23 (TNA) -- Airports of Thailand (AoT) will submit its plans to construct a third runway and a domestic passenger terminal at Suvarnabhumi Airport to the Cabinet in October, AoT president Serirat Prasutanond said on Sunday.

If approved by Cabinet, both projects will be financed by AoT at a cost of about Bt10 billion and could be completed within three years, Mr Serirat said.

The plans for the domestic passenger terminal have been completed, while concerned officials are now studying the environmental impact report submitted by the Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning.

Initially, it was determined that a third runway, if built, would in effect reduce the impact of noise on people living near the airport, because it would spread noise pollution over a wider area and reduce the number of landings and departures per runway, he explained.

Construction of the third runway will not hamper services provided by the first and second runways, he added. (TNA)
