Welcome to Suvarnabhumi

Today is the first day that Suvarnabhumi Int'l Airport fully operates. Bangkok Int'l Airport, known as Don Muang Airport, is now closed for commercial flights. The transition started shortly after midnight when last flights departed Don Muang.

As a passenger, I'd known Don Muang forever, and as a pilot, I'd been flying to Don Muang for hundreds of times. Seeing it got closed down made me feel sad. It's like we had some kind of bond between us. Anyway, we have to move on cause Don Muang can no longer serve as many passengers.
