He said Terminal 2 is filled with restaurants and stalls and toilets at 44 locations. An additional feature is called Sleep Box to serve passengers who have to wait for late night flights. There will be 25 sleep boxes but initially only five will be on service, he said. Sleep Box comprises of 15 sq.m. hotel rooms with ensuite bathrooms, and is set to serve flyers who have to wait for late-night flights, said Nitinai Sirimatthakarn.

The service is expected to cater to flyers that transfer from Suvarnabhumi and have a long wait between flights. Rates starts at THB 1,000 for the first three hours with an additional THB 200 per hour after that or THB 1,800 for a whole night. The price is THB 300 if you just want to take a quick shower.

A new parking building is also under the development phase that will have space for 3,000 cars.
