Find the cheapest flight to Thailand
Thailand has long been the budget traveler’s paradise – but is it easy to get there on a budget? For the most part, it is – Bangkok has one of Asia’s largest and busiest airports, which means there are plenty of flights to choose from and prices are low. If you’re determined not to stay in Bangkok even for a short time, you’re still likely to be routed through the city – so your best bet would be to fly to your next destination on a local budget airline.
Most Flights Go Through Bangkok
Suvarnabhumi Airport (airport code BKK) in Bangkok is also sometimes called (New) Bangkok International Airport – it opened in late 2006 when the old international airport (Don Muang Airport, airport code DMK) ceased commercial flights. It sits about 25 km from Bangkok, and it’s a main hub for Thai Airways International, Bangkok Airways and Thai AirAsia. It’s also a focus city for China Airlines, Cathay Pacific, EVA Air, Air India, Emirates and SriLankan Airlines. Suvarnabhumi boasts the world’s tallest control tower and the second largest single building and airport terminal. Don Muang was re-opened by the Thai government in the Spring of 2007, meaning Bangkok will now be served by two international airports.
