The Airports of Thailand (AoT) is eyeing to expand the capacity of the passenger terminal at Suvarnabhumi International Airport with a 60-billion-THB budget. The project is expected to be completed in 2016.

Speaking of the Suvarnabhumi development plan, AoT President Serirat Prasutanond stated that the company is preparing to build another concourse and enlarge the existing passenger terminal in order to accommodate 60 million people a year, instead of 45 million at present.

The AoT also plans to raise more income from non-aviation businesses by developing land around the airport into a business center. The state enterprise will adjust its service strategy using the “Airport of Smiles” concept to create good impression among passengers. The company targets to become one of the top ten airports with the best service in the world.
