Bangkok's old airport reopens as heir struggles | NEWS.com.au travel

"BANGKOK'S nearly century-old Don Muang airport reopened to domestic flights today to ease crowds at the city's troubled new airport, authorities said.

Don Muang was one of Asia's busiest hubs until it shut in September, following the opening of the sparkling new Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Some 140 flights carrying 20,000 passengers daily are now set to return to the airport, beloved by many for its quirks – including a golf course between the main runways – and its relatively easy access to downtown Bangkok.

The revived airport's first flight took off for flag carrier Thai Airways at 6am for the northeastern city of Ubon Ratchathani, an airline spokesman said.

A sign draped across the check-in counters read: "Welcome back to Don Muang."

"Don Muang has reopened and is running smoothly," said a spokeswoman.
