The second passenger terminal building at U-Tapao International Airport will be fully opened in February, the airport’s director said.

Rear Adm Luachai Sri-iamkul, the director of the airport, said the new terminal ‘Terminal 2’ has been partially opened for domestic flight passengers and for inbound international flight passengers. He said the airport would have to build more toilets to cope with the high number of passengers and to open bidding for the commercial management of the building so that there would be shops and restaurants for passengers. The director said the outbound immigration police booths and work on some shops has yet to be completed.

Luachai said all the facilities in Terminal 2 should be ready by February next year. He said the second terminal building, which is about 80 per cent complete, covers 22,000 square metres and can accommodate 3 million passengers a year but with effective management, the building could accommodate up to 5 million passengers a year. Luachai said 2 million passengers used the airport last year and this year the number could rise to 2.5 million.

Pattaya Airport is a popular entry point to Thailand for visitors going to Jomtien beach and Koh Samet island.
