Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport to be equipped with information kiosks and bus services
Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport will offer special information kiosks which are expected to be operational by the middle of next year along with reinstated bus services.
Airport general Prapon Pattanakijsakul said the machines will be installed in various points in the departure hall including the area where passengers enter the immigration booths.
The kiosks serve to inform boarding pass holders directions, time to enter the gates and even the time left for shopping before boarding the aircraft.
The project is estimated to cost about 100 million baht (S$3.9 million).
Bus lines are also being reintroduced next year. They will travel from the airport to various locations in Bangkok.
Airport bus lines were previously scrapped due to poor numbers.
Since coming to power in May, the country's junta has been analysing state enterprises and large projects worth millions in order to ensure transparency and control over state companies.
Passenger traffic at the airport is expected to reach 50 million by September next year.
