Bangkok – Three bus routes linking U-tapao with three eastern provinces have been introduced to serve passengers and promote the international airport in Sattahip.

The Department of Land Transport (DLT) and the Navy jointly introduced the bus routes from the airport to Trat, Rayong and Chon Buri.

The routes are operated by private transport firms using air-conditioned buses with GPS tracking systems and another system to monitor their speed.

DLT Director General Sanit Promwong said the new services would benefit passengers and promote the airport as a new commercial aviation hub for eastern provinces.
