Fast Track Arrivals and Departure

Recommended Posts

I know the over 70s immigration lane on arrivals i.e. top of the blue carpeted slope to the right but not aware of departures fast track over 70s where you go up the elevator , then through security and then back down another elevator to multi lanes of normally huge queues  . Had to speak to a supervisor once as I think I would have missed my flight because of the log jam ( started upstairs in security )  and she took me to the front 

The elderly line / door I used was nothing like that, on the main departures level, towards the right hand side, through a door, on a very small queue within 5 or 6 steps, all done 5 minutes.

Bit of a difference between 70 and 50?

Suvarnabhumi airport is friendly for elderly people because they are allowed to use "Fast Lane" at departure and at arrival.

I am 75 and I am in good health (for my age) except that I cannot stand more than 10 minutes without pain...

Three months ago I had a very bad surprise after arrival (for the first time since 2005) in the glorious airport of Singapore ....no fast lane for elderly people upon arrival...I should have asked for a wheelchair but I am too shy to do so because I can walk normally.

I lived in Singapore for many years. They are much nicer to elder people in Thailand, especially at the airport. I'm in a wheelchair now and Thai people are so nice and helpful. Much better than most countries except Australia and New Zealand. .There elderly people have a lot of privileges.

On departure, 70's and up use either one of 2 Priority Lanes that avoids going up and down through security as they have security on the same level as check-in and immigration. One of them looks like this.

They are located underneath or near the foot of the escalators.

I used it in December. Very convenient, much better than standing in the cattle queue. Right hand side.

That's the door I was taken to.

I think the actual rule might be 72. But folks with mobility issues can use it too.

The sign at the Priority exit lane at the airport states 70.

If you are 70 you are entitled to use it. If you are less than 70 with retirement visa or with a friend who's 70 you should not be allowed to use it and rightfully turned away to the regular immigration line.

I just can imagine they would split the couple up. 

I have traveled with a disabled friend before - 5 people in the group but only one disabled and they let us all use the Priority arrival lane

My apology, there is a typing error (my error) in my earlier post:

I meant to say:

Apologies.
