Phuket Gets ClearancePhuket airports auxiliary passenger  terminal will start operations tomorrow to relieve overcrowding at Thailand’s third busiest airport.

The opening date of Terminal X was set after tests of systems following the completion of construction, said airport general manager Pratuang Sonkham.

The facility, costing 150 million baht, will be largely used for international passenger check-in, helping to reduce heavy congestion at the main terminal.

Terminal X was built under an expedited programme to offer much-needed extra capacity to cope with rising traffic demand before the airport’s main expansion is completed in May next year.

It is capable of handling 1,000 passengers per hour in its usable area of 1,320 square metres. It is equipped with 10 check-in counters, baggage storage space, a passenger waiting area, an outdoor resting area, a commercial zone and airline offices.

It is located on four rai previously used as a football pitch and was leased from Aeronautical Radio of Thailand Ltd, the navigation service provider.

After checking in, passengers using Terminal X, specifically those on international charter flights, will be transferred by bus to the main terminal for security, immigration formalities and boarding.
