Once the largest airport in Thailand and the 18th busiest on Earth, Don Mueang has been replaced as Thailand’s primary passenger and cargo airport by the newer Suvarnabhumi Airport, officially opened on 15 September 2006.
Don Mueang became a facility for charter flights, military aircraft and civil aviation. The airport was reopened for non-connecting domestic commercial flights on 24 March 2007. Three airlines are now using the airport: Nok Air, Orient Thai Airlines (formerly One-Two-GO Airlines) and Thai AirAsia (ไทยแอร์เอเชีย). All Thai Airways domestic flights were transferred to Suvarnabhumi Airport.
An RTAF (Royal Thai Air Force) golf course is located between the two runways. The course has no separation from the runway, and golfers are held back by a red light whenever planes land.
