Suvarnabhumi Airport allows free parking during long Apec weekend


Suvarnabhumi Airport will allow passengers to park their vehicles at its long-term car park for seven days to encourage Bangkokians to leave the capital ahead of the Apec Summit next week.

The airport management said free parking would be provided for 718 vehicles at the Zone C long-term parking area of its car park from 12.01am on November 15 until midnight of November 21, for seven days.

The management said the free parking facility aimed to support the government’s announcement of extra holidays from November 16 to 18 in Bangkok, Nonthaburi and Samut Prakan provinces. The extra holidays are aimed at easing traffic in Bangkok during the summit.

The airport said it would provide A line shuttle buses between the Zone C parking zone and the passenger terminal around the clock.

The buses will leave Public Transport Centre every 15 minutes to the Zone C parking zone and drop passengers off at various stops including, Gate 3 on the ground floor of the passenger terminal and Gate 8 before returning to Zone C parking zone and returning to the transport centre.

The airport urged passengers of international flights to check in three hours ahead of departure and two hours ahead of departure time for domestic flights.
