Old navy airbase to become the capitals third airport

A longtime military airbase southeast of Bangkok will become the capital’s third commercial airport.

The longtime military airbase in the southeast of Bangkok will become the cities third commercial airport.

The so called U tapao royal Thai navy airfield will be ready to serve commercial air traffic in 2017 after some modification will be done during the time.

The airfield, which served as a US air force base during the American-Vietnamese war, was briefly put into commercial service in 2008 when anti-government protesters shut down Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports.

Special motorways and connection streets with the inner city are on process and will be implemented soon.

In the long term, officials hope to see further improvements by 2020 that would increase capacity to five million travelers annually.
