New Delhi, 27 Sep (IANS) Air India has become the first Indian international carrier to start operations from the new Suvarnabhumi International Airport, the aviation hub of Bangkok.

In a statement Wednesday, Air India said the Thailand government has given to it the green signal to start the flights from the airport Sep 28.

'AI348, operating on the Delhi-Bangkok-Shanghai route will be the first AI flight to take-off for Shanghai on Sep 28 from this airport which covers a total area of 563,000 square metres,' the statement said.

The 731 million-Baht Suvarnabhumi airport is five times bigger than the existing Don Muang Bangkok International Airport.

At 132.2 metres, it is the world's tallest airport eclipsing the former record holder Kuala Lumpur International Airport by 10 metres.
