The Bt3.7-billion upgrade of Krabi airport is 50 per cent complete, according to airport authorities.

Construction of the third passenger terminal, an apron, and renovation of the two existing terminals is at the halfway point and expected to be completed in 2023, said Krabi airport deputy director general Somkiat Maneesathit.

The new terminal will double the airport’s capacity from 4 million to 8 million passengers per year in the southern holiday province.

Of the total Bt3.7 billion cost, Bt2.923 billion is for construction of the third terminal and renovation of the first and second terminals. The remainder is being used for the apron and related electrical system.
