Skytrain extension to Suvarnabhumi Airport

Posted by rayc101 on 26/1/2010 at 05:16

Hi

Does anyone know if the Bangkok Skytrain extension from Makasan to Suvarnabhumi Airport is operational yet?

I am aware that the infrastructure is in place, but are trains running yet?

Cheers
Rayc

Last I heard was no. That was a few months ago though.

Looks like it's going to be early April

Thanks tuk tuk

Mmm...I guess we'll wait until April. I feel empathy for the airport taxi drivers who do not have a lot of alternative employment options, and will be pretty pissed once its operational.

nope (passed through at the beginning of this month). & rumours are that it might not even open by April...
