General Sondhi, the coup leader, was interviewed yesterday and asked about the opening of the new airport. He replied that everything was on schedule. Things are back to normal in Thailand now and there should be no disruption affecting the transfer of international flights to Suvarnabhumi next Thursday (28th).

SuvarnaBhoomi is a sanskrit word, and as pointed out, means land of gold. In sanskrit( or other indian languages), it is pronounced as it is spelt

soo-var-Na-Bhoo-mi

HM the King chose well. Much better than that of the new airport's location, Nongnughao, which I am told translates as Cobra Swamp.

However as other have pointed out, in Thai it is pronounced su-wan-na-poom

There is no v sound in Thai and the i is silent at the end
