logo suvarnabhumi airportSuvarnabhumi Internationl Airport

Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, IATA code BKK, is the main airport in Thailand and one of the most important in Southeast Asia. The airport is located 30 km east off Bangkok in Racha Thewa sub-district, Tambon Racha Thewa in Thai, which makes part of Bang Phli district, Amphoe Bang Phli, in Samut Prakan province. One of the largest in the world, Suvarnabhumi is a modern and efficient airport with an elegant and refined design. It consists of only one terminal which is extremely large and is possibly the largest in the world, too. Noteworthy is also an impressive 132-metre tall - the tallest in the world - control tower that dominates its landscape. Suvarnabhumi Airport began operations in September 2006. Initially, until March 24, 2007, all domestic and international flights to Bangkok landed at Suvarnabhumi; later, for purely logistical reasons, many domestic flights and some low-cost international ones were moved back to Don Mueang. Currently almost all international and domestic flights operated by the national carrier Thai Airways, Bangkok Airways and Thai Smile and some domestic flights of Thai Air Asia land at Suvarnabhumi.
