Koh Samui could be about to get a second airport to rival the existing privately run airport already there.
The Thai Transport Ministry plans to build a state run airport to help increase tourist numbers and end the monopoly on the island.
The existing airport cannot be expanded due its close proximity to residential areas and an increase in tourist numbers is putting a strain on the airport according to Homes Go Fast.
A second airport on the island would provide a boost to the property market claims Nick Marr, director of international real estate portal HomesGoFast.com.
“A new airport on Koh Samui would certainly provide a boost to the local property market. Making it easier to reach the island would attract foreign buyers looking for a sound overseas investment” he said.
Samui airport is owned and operated by Bangkok Airways and adheres to strict rules about the number of flights to restrict noise pollution.
