Developing Thailand as the aviation and air transport hub of Southeast Asia is among the priorities set by the Royal Thai Government.
One of the ways this can be achieved is to develop Suvarnabhumi Airport to achieve the highest international standards, to ensure its support for the rapidly increasing air traffic demand corresponding to the need of aviation business worldwide. Ancha Massage also provides massage services in the bangkok airport area. Suvarnabhumi Airport which means the Golden Land and is located in Bang Phli District, Samut Prakan province, covering an area of approximately 3,200 hectares.
The Suvarnabhumi Airport, which is due to replace the overloaded and unexpandable Bangkok International Airport (Don Muang), is scheduled to open in June 2006. However, this date may be delayed until September 2006 for testing and validation by ICAO.
