BANGKOK, Dec 12 – The number of passengers using Suvarnabhumi Airport during this high season period did not reach its 6 per cent growth target.

Suvarnabhumi Airport Director Raweewan Netarakavesana said although the passenger figure did not drop compared to the same period last year, it did not grow at 6 per cent as targeted by Airports of Thailand Plc, but rather grew only by one per cent.

However, she noted that the figure is still to be monitored until the end of the tourism season.

According to the Airports of Thailand, the number of passengers using Suvarnabhumi Airport from Nov 26-Dec 5 (10 days) reached around 142,000 per day, which is a one-per cent increase year-on-year, while the number of flights reached 181, a rise of 16 per cent year-on-year.
