Getting around by air

Tickets

In some cases – when travelling to neighbouring countries or to domestic destinations – it is still convenient to use a travel agent in Thailand. The amount of commission an agent will charge varies so shop around to gauge the discrepancy in prices. Paying by credit card generally offers purchasing protection, because most card issuers provide refunds if you can prove you didn’t get what you paid for. Agents who accept only cash should hand over the tickets straightaway and not tell you to ‘come back tomorrow’. After you’ve made a booking or paid your deposit, call the airline and confirm that the booking was made.

Air fares during the high season (December to March) can be expensive.

Airlines

The following airlines fly to and from Bangkok and international destinations.

Airports

Bangkok is Thailand’s primary international and domestic gateway. Thailand's provincial airports support an extensive domestic and growing international network. Those offering international destinations include the following:

Suvarnabhumi International Airport The country's main air terminal, although most domestic flights operate out of Don Mueang International Airport. It's located in Samut Prakan, 30km east of Bangkok and 110km from Pattaya. The airport’s name is pronounced su·wan·na·poom, and it inherited the airport code (BKK) previously held by the old airport at Don Mueang. The airport website has real-time details of arrivals and departures.

Don Mueang International Airport Located 25km north of central Bangkok, Don Mueang was retired from service in 2006 only to reopen later as the city’s de facto budget and domestic hub.

Phuket International Airport Several domestic and international destinations.

Chiang Mai International Airport International destinations include Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Luang Prabang, Macau, Mandalay, Seoul, Singapore, Taipei and Yangon, as well as Beijing, Shanghai and several other cities in China.

Chiang Rai International Airport International destinations include Kunming, Macau and Singapore.

Hat Yai International Airport International destinations are limited to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

Mae Sot Airport Flights to/from Yangon.
