Suvarnabnumi Airport increases taxi numbers for high season

Suvarnabhumi Airport has registered 1,000 more taxi drivers to serve the arrival hall until early January, as the number of tourists has increased for the high season, the airport director said on Tuesday.

Sirote Duangrat said the airport had increased the number since November 22 and the extra drivers would be on standby to pick up arriving passengers from 5pm to 10pm.

He said the past month had seen the number of taxi trips from the increase from about 9,000 to 10,000 trips a day.

He said if officials noticed that the number of taxis became inadequate and passengers were waiting longer than 15 minutes, they would immediately bring in cabs from the departure terminal on the fourth floor to pick up arriving passengers.

The director said the airport provided shuttle buses to take arriving passengers to Mega Bang Na shopping mall and to BTS Bang Na station.

The airport has parking space for 5,000 vehicles across four parking lots. Another 455 vehicles can park outside near the Novotel Suvarnabhumi Hotel. Sirote said the airport also provided parking space for 1,432 vehicles at long-term parking lots in Zone A and D and during the long holidays, and up to 718 vehicles would be exempted from parking fees if they parked in Zone C.

The airport also provides a shuttle bus between the Zone C parking lot and the passenger terminal every 15 minutes, the director added.
