Airports of Thailand (AOT) will spend Bt393 billion on the expansion of six airports as part of its investment plan for 2017-33, the company’s president, Nitinai Sirismatthakarn, said.

The plan, already approved by the board, aims to boost the airports' capacity to serve a total of 243.7 million passengers.

The budget covers the construction of a passenger terminal in the north of Suvarnabhumi Airport, which will boost the airport’s capacity by another 40 million passengers per year.

It also covers phase 3 of Don Mueang Airport’s expansion and phase 2 of the Chiang Mai Airport expansion.

He added that AOT could afford the huge investment, due to its financial strength.

Presently, AOT runs six international airports: Don Mueang, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Hat Yai, Chiang Rai and Suvarnabhumi.
