Bangkok Don Mueang International Airport arrivals
The airport is located north of the city of Bangkok. It is easily accessible by car or public transport. It serves the city of Bangkok in addition to the other airport Suvarnabhumi Airport. In addition, it is also often used as a hub to the smaller airports in Thailand. There are airlines such as Nok Air, Thai Lion Air, and AirAsia that carry out the most Don Mueang arrivals. The last ten years has seen growth in passengers resulting in more than 40 million per year. To realize this, 2 runways and 3 terminals are used.
In the last century, Bangkok’s Don Mueang airport was the second airport to be built in Thailand. The first Don Mueng flight arrivals were in 1914. At that time, the airport was not yet open to the public. That lasted until 1924. It had to endure several wars and is often used by the Air Forces of the US and Thailand itself. At the beginning of this century it was decided to build a new airport near Bangkok. This resulted in an opening in 2006 whereby Don Mueang airport was temporarily closed and Suvarnabhumi Airport took over all flights. This allowed a major renovation to take place, after which it reopened for domestic arrivals six months later.
