The Suvarnabhumi airport will exempt parking fees for passengers to facilitate their air travels during the long holiday weekend.
Airport director Sirote Duangratana said the free parking will be arranged at Zone C parking area where it can accommodate 718 cars.
He said passengers can drive and park their cars from 00.01 am on July 16 until midnight on July 20.
As the airport is expected to be crowded with passengers at the coming long holiday this weekend, the parking areas in front of passenger terminal might not be sufficient, and parking at Zone C might be inconvenient, he said.
This prompted the airport to exempt parking fees at Zone C, he said.
But he said the airport will arrange special shuttle bus service during this period for passengers between Zone C and the passenger terminal.
The shuttle bus will leave every 15 minutes.
The parking points of the shuttle buses will be at the airport’s departure terminal on the fourth floor of Gate 5, and at the arrival terminal on the second floor of Gate 5.
The special shuttle bus service is free of charge.
But he said the airport still have its normal shuttle bus service (Route A) available from the Bus Terminal to Zone C parking area.
The bus will deliver passengers to Gate 3, 8 and 5 and return to Zone C for parking. During rush hour the bus will leave every 7 minutes, while normal hour will leave every 10 minutes.
