SRT: Airport Link ready for business

The Airport Link connecting Bangkok and Suvarnabhumi airport is 100 per cent ready for the first day of commercial services tomorrow, State Railway of Thailand governor Yuthana Thapcharoen said on Sunday.

“The stations, the rails and the overall train system are ready for service. The Airport Link will run from 6am to midnight,” Mr Yuthana said.

The City Line will make eight stops across the capital starting from Phayathai before heading to the airport. Its fares start at 15 baht.

The Express Service is a non-stop journey between Makkasan and Suvarnabhumi and the fare is 100 baht per trip. However, the fare will be raised to 150 baht after the check-in system are fully set up at Makkasan station.

The Airport Link is expected to cater for 15,000 to 50,000 passengers a day.

“Independent safety and system certification engineers (ICE) have issued a certificate standard for the trains, while security personnel and police are overseeing order and security in each station,” the SRT chief said.
