Airports in Bangkok
In 2006 the new airport Bangkok International Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) was opened, replacing Don Muaeng as the city’s major airport. Suvarnabhumi Airport is the major airport for all international flights.
The Don Muaeng Airport serves domestic flights for some of Thai Thailand’s low-cost airlines. If you are flying to the islands from Bangkok, make sure you check from which airport in Bangkok you depart.
Our experience: From Helsinki to Bangkok takes the flight ten hours and ten minutes. It is a pleasant flight. We appreciate good offer of wines on board, especially Chardonnay barrique, as well as nice meals. We “think” we have to eat as much as possible before disembarking in Asia. In the morning we fly above China. The country looks from the airplane as a vast sandy prairie. No city and nothing green visible. In the front, in the back, on the right, on the left is only yellow empty remoteness. We are in Asia. Vast and distant. If we were here on the earth, it would take pretty long time to walk to the nearest civilisation. Strange feeling for an European.
