New Utapao Terminal Further Delayed

I was hoping that this new terminal would be up and running by now..


 


Over 25 years ago I flew to Singapore from this airport. It was very convenient. From memory the airline was called Silver Wings, which I think was a subsidiary of Thai Air, in those far-off days The plane was a Boeing, as far as I can recall.

Utapao would also be handy for trips to Cambodia. I have yet to pay a flying visit to Angkor Wat/Siem Reap. It has been on my bucket list for years.

UTP could be a money maker.

 

I had been looking into running an airline with a couple planes which would rotate European destinations once or twice a week with UTP.

 

For example,

MO : London - UTP    UTP - Frankfurt

TU : Frankfurt - UTP   UTP - Paris

WE : Paris - UTP   UTP - Stockholm

TH : Stockholm - UTP   UTP - London

FR : London - UTP   UTP - Amsterdam

SA : Amsterdam - UTP  UTP/Maintenance

SU : UTP/Maintenance - UTP - London

 

Prices would be low because the planes yould be full, and since they would be probably be full of men, two toilets of the A330 could be replaced with short time rooms :)

LOL

 

Habitual Butterflies are known as helicopters in the LOS I believe. Would your budding small fleet include helis instead of a limo service, to and from the named airports? It might be worth contacting Sir Richard B. He apparently made an offer for the Concorde fleet when that ceased operations.

 

If your proposed company ever goes public I would be interested in a few quoted shares.

 

Cheers

Ditto mate,i made the same flight on the same airline about 91 or was it 92?`Silver wings` sounds familiar but it could also have been `trade winds`.A decent airline if i remember rightly,only ever been the one time since,a trip to koh samui.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
