Samui International Airport   Virtual tour

Samui Airport is a certified commercial airport that commenced operation of services since 25 April 1989. Located at Tambon Borput, Ampur Koh Samui, Surat Thani Province, the site of the airport used to be a coconut plantation. However the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand considered that the size and physical features of this plot of land were suitable for building an airport.

On 25 September 1996, Samui Airport was granted permission to operate as a customs airport, to accommodate airlines operating scheduled air services to/from international destinations. The Airport was then able to provide more convenience to tourists who can clear customs, immigration and quarantine formalities within the airport terminal as well as obtaining Visa-on-arrival.

Regarding the design and construction of Samui Airport, much attention has been made to blend into the environment of a tropical island by using natural materials to build open-air pavilions. Its 2,100 meters long and 45 meters wide runway is strong enough to support landing of 70-ton jet aircraft such as Airbus A320-A319 and Boeing 737. These small jets take only 50 minutes to fly from Bangkok to Koh Samui. Samui Airport is a hub for domestic and international flights.

At present Samui Airport has six terminal buildings, four for handling domestic flights and two for international flights. The 7,300 square meters commercial space can serve 16,000 passengers daily or 6 million passengers annually. To support increasing number of passengers, an expansion and refurbishment plan is in progress, expected to be completed in the near future.
