Koh Samui news: Airport Expanding Terminal

Bangkok Airways will be expanding the Koh Samui Airport with two new passengers halls next year.

Bangkok AirwaysReportedly a THB50 million budget has been allocated and the airline expects to increase passengers handling with the new facilities.

Recent media stories have surfaced about a private group looking to establish a new airport on the mainland in Don Sak near to Surat Thani.

While this is 45 minutes away from the aforementioned existing airport and effectively that much closer to Samui, given the time , cost and scale needed to develop a new entry, logically the current Surat Thani airport should be a far more viable solution to aid the island’s airlift problem.
