Holiday Rental – Travel improves with Temporary Terminal for Phuket

By on Aug 07, 2013 in Property News, Resorts

The board of Airports of Thailand Plc (AoT) last week endorsed a 145-million-baht maximum budget for building the facility, designed to render much-needed capacity before the airport’s main expansion, costing 5.8 billion baht, is completed in mid-2015.

The approval came as the AoT board also asked management to conduct a feasibility study for a second runway at Phuket to meet future demand growth once the current expansion is finished, according to AoT executives.Phuket Vill Rental

Unique Engineering and Construction Plc was given a preliminary mandate from the board to build the temporary terminal, a single-storey building with usable floor space of 1,400 square metres, subject to price negotiations.

The temporary terminal, to be built in 120 days on four rai currently used as a football pitch, will have the capacity to handle 3 million passengers a year when completed in December.

It will be a glass-and-steel structure designed in harmony with the terminal featured in the main expansion.

Because it will be located away from the existing terminal, the temporary facility, equipped with 10 check-in counters, will be used for passengers on international charter flights, to then be transferred by bus to the main terminal for security and immigration formalities..To continue reading, visit Bangkok Post
