Airports of Thailand have announced expansion plans for Chiang Mai and Phuket airports to meet the customer rise in the recent years.
The present airports at Chiang Mai and Phuket cannot be expanded and hence construction of two new airports as part of a larger project to build 6 new airports has been decided upon.
For Chiang Mai, the location between San Kamphaeng district and Ban Thi district in Lamphun has been chosen for the construction, which would make Northern Thailand a travel hub.
Likewise, a site in Khok Kloi, Phang Nga, adjacent to Phuket Island will be the construction place for the new airport.
The projected value for the entire construction is 126 billion baht, which will be completed by 2025 by the officials.
AOT reported TNA, that by 2038, 137,790 flights are expected to arrive at Chiang Mai airport, bring almost 23.33 million passengers.
Similarly Phuket will receive 42.2 million passengers from 211,150 flights by 2038.
