Suvarnabhumi Airport (airport code: BKK) is the new international airport of Bangkok, initially planned to replace Don Muang; as it reached its capacity of 40 million passengers a year already after a short time, both airports of Bangkok are now in operation simultaneously.

Suvarnabhumi Bangkok Airport is located in Racha Thewa in the Bang Phli district of Samut Prakan province, 30 kilometers east of Bangkok.

As the airport is intended as travel hub for the whole of Southeast Asia, the name Suvarnabhumi was chosen by HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej, which means "The Golden Land" (a traditional name for the Thailand-Cambodia-Laos-Burma region).
