Flight Info For Bkk To Cm

Recommended Posts

Note that Thai Airways is the safest when your flight is delayed. With teh budget carriers you lose the ticket. With Thai AIr they just put you on the next plane. Thai Air is about 1000 baht dearer compared to Nok.  All can be booked online.

Also Thai Air may allow you to label luggage all the way through to ChianG mai, and have you go through customs/immigration in Chiang mai.  Not sure that this is a major benefit tho..

It's generally quicker to go through Immigration in Bangkok than in Chiang Mai, in my experience.

To get from the International terminal to the Domestic terminal is easy: when you have cleared Immigration, picked up your bags and cleared customs on Don Mueang (Bangkok International Airport), you just look for the signs saying "Airport Shuttle Bus". jump on and get off at the Domestic terminal where you check in to your connecting flight. Have never waited for more than 10 minutes for the shuttle bus.

Seems a lot of hassle here.

As I said above on earlier flight I arrived at D.M just after 3-10pm and went to transfer desk.

Told the guy that I was on the 5-30 to C.M but any chance of the earlier one at 3-30pm.(no luggage)..and sure enough ..mai problem.

Gave me a new boarding card,walked downstairs (quick Heine) jumped on the bus and was on the plane a couple of minutes later.

The time between getting off the London TG to CM departure was only about @ 15 mins.with customs /arrivals in C.M only another couple on top...easy :D

I was so impressed that i wrote a recco.in a Business travel Mag which is still on line today. :o:D

We went >through custom's at BKK before me met switched flights to Chiang >Mai, and our luggage went through customs when we arrived at >Chiang Mai. It was very convenient this way.

So its ThaiAir all the way through to CM?

Why would your luggage went through customs twice, both in BKK and CM??

Are you with Thai Air all the way through? The fact that you have minimal luggage makes life much easier ;-)

No..not always ...sometimes...BMI-KLM>amsterdam-China A>Bang>TG >C.M :o

When leaving from the smoke I just make sure that I have the boarding passes issued in London before dept...thats it.

Things are now changing with the introduction of E-tics which assuming the machine accepts your CC-ID-FFcard etc..should make the whole process even easier.(and u can pick your seat)
