Don Mueang to get facelift during hiatus

As the coronavirus has grounded flights and emptied airports across the world, Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok is using this downturn to revamp the interior of its international terminal, a project which will cost 126 million baht (US$3.8 million), reported the Bangkok Post.

The report quoted airport director Sampan Khuntranont as saying that the project entails three sub-tasks: improvements to the air-conditioning system which will cost 99 million baht, re-carpeting works worth 18 million baht, and a nine million baht switch to energy-saving LED lights.

Construction bids will be opened this month, and work is slated to begin in July and expected to complete by year-end, according to the report.

As well, a plan is also underway to expand Don Mueang, with Thailand’s airport authorities having approved a master plan for the third-phase development of the airport pegged at an estimated 39 billion baht.
