Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport (IATA: BKK, ICAO: VTBS), previously known as New Bangkok International Airport, also referred to as Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, Suvarnabhumi Bangkok Airport, Suvarnabhumi Airport, or even just Bangkok Airport, is located in Racha Thewa in Bang Phli, about 25 kilometres (16 miles) east of downtown Bangkok, Samut Prakan, Thailand. The airport is named to honour the golden kingdom, Suvarnabhumi, hypothesised to have been located somewhere in Southeast Asia.
