Suvarnabhumi International Airport calls for cooperation to arrive at the airport early during the holidays in July
Over the last two years, the Thai aviation industry has lost passengers and suffered great damage, reducing the number of airport staff at each airport in the country. However, deregulation has progressed rapidly in recent months, and travel demand has also expanded rapidly. Currently, the development of operations has not kept pace with the increasing number of airport passengers.
In Thailand, five consecutive holidays from July 13th to 17th and four consecutive holidays from July 28th to 31st are coming. During this long vacation, heavy congestion is expected at each airport in Thailand.
Suvarnabhumi International Airport recommends that international flights arrive at the airport at least 3 hours before departure and domestic flights at least 2 hours before departure during consecutive holidays to reduce congestion.
Please contact the AOT Contact Center (1722) for more information. (24 hours support)
