Why such different prices for domestic travel?

Recommended Posts

Interesting.  I can get a round trip flight from Chiang Mai to Phuket, Krabi, or Surat Thani for about $85 USDs.  However a trip to Koh Samui costs about $250.  Why is there such a price difference?

It is annoying that Thailand allows BA to do this but they do TIT!

the bright minds are discussing building a bridge to Koh Samui!

Maybe cheaper to nationalize the Samui airport and allow budget carriers in.

One of the two large ferry companies serving Samui certainly falls into that category.......

If you owned an airline and built your own airport what would you do? 

But the cost of building the airport has been recoverd how many hundreds of times over since it was built...? The government really should set a price limit...its almost 10,000 baht return from U Tpao...a mere 50 minute flight...then you have to contend with the taxi Mafia wanting 1,000 for a ten minute drive...

Since when does that have anything to do with business. 

 

If you don't want to pay 10,000 baht from U-Tapao. Don't fly to Samui.

 

Or You can drive, go on a bus, go on the train.
