A second international airport planned for Bangkok will be able to accommodate 100
million passengers and 6.4 million tons of cargo a year, say Thai officials.
The new facility, costing around $4.2 billion, is to be built 20 km east of Bangkok
in Samut Prakarn province, in an area once known as "Cobra Swamp".
Construction is to begin in Nov. 1995 to be completed by Oct. 2000. - AP
