The number of disembarking international passengers at Suvarnabhumi Airport was 1,519,488 in January 2010 up 24% compared to January 2009 when we still feeling the effects of the December 2008 Airport closure.

Domestic passenger disembarkations at Suvarnabhumi Airport were 551,954 compared to 386,637 in January 2009.

Bangkok’ Don Muang airport has minimal international passengers. Domestic disembarkations were 119,484 in January 2010 compared to 194,089 in January 2009 and reflect the move of many domestic flight operations back to Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Phuket international disembarkations were 172,952 in January 2010 compared to 122,776 in January 2009 a 41 % increase year on year.

Domestic disembarkations at Phuket airport were 191,216 in January 2010 compared to 147,947 in January 2009.

All this is good news for the Thai tourism, hotel and Phuket Villa Rental sector.  It must however be remembered that the January 2009 numbers were low due to the airport closure in the previous month.
