700 Baht only for premium arrival service... cheaper than flying business class to get the voucher for fast track ;-)

Why waste good money? How many times have you got off the plane only to be standing there waiting for the bag guys.

Thanks JaiLai so the best is 1300 Baht per pax at this moment.

Anyone else knows a better rate than this ?

The way I see it, it is 700 baht/pax.

1300 Baht if you want the electric cart as well.

1760 Baht is with buggy as well

Yeah; it's rare to spend more than 10 minutes at immigration in my experience. Especially if you have checked bags there is little benefit in the fast track lane. I've had a fast track voucher thing in my bag for almost two years and never found the need to use it. (Around 10 trips in that time)

Here's some relevant information.

Whether you wiah to use it or not is up to you...your choice.

If you are disabled....and require a wheelchair...you can request one even on a lowest price discount economy fare.

The airline will provide one.

Now I am legitamately "slightly impaired in mobility" as it is politely called...and the airline I went back to the U.S, with last May provided a wheelchair for me.

For me that "slightly impaired mobility" means:

* I find it difficult to walk more than about 200 meters on hard marble floors...like in airports.

* I need handrails to hold on to going up and down stairs,

* Escalators and travalators...moving walkways...are difficult for me to use.

* Waitng in long queues is difficult because long standing tires my weak legs.

* I can't remove my baggage from the baggage carousel without danger of falling.

So that's why I request a wheelchair.

Along with this (in my case legitamately required) wheelchair comes the following benefits.

* You get wheeled through immigration...exit and entry...basically bypassing the queue.

* Your baggage is collected for you.

* At security checks...including transit through airport security...you get to basically bypass the queue there also.

* Someone wheels you to and from your arrival or departure gates.

* Passport formalities are greatly speeded up because you're in a wheelchair....no waiting in the queue.

And so on.

It's kind of a free fast track service....provided by the airlines.

Most of the wheelchair attendents....at least in the U.S.....are off duty airport security people who push wheelchairs as an extra job.

Give them a small tip....they are only recieving minimum wage anyhow.

As i said...this is just information....up to you whether you choose to take advantage of it or not

Recently with the worst line Istill had to wait for luggage so no real benefit, but you never know whats around the cornor. The lounge service sounds good to use though if you cannot access your airlines lounge

And useful information it is. Thanks for that.

I'm slightly better off than you, can walk longer distances but at my slow pace.

Again thanks

My young son has to use a wheel chair permanently. I promise you I would gladly give up these airport 'benefits" for that not to be so.

Your condition sounds genuine and you've every right to the facilities offered to ensure safe and comfortable travel. I hate to see this abused by those whose disabilities are somewhat exagarated and cured once through customs.

If you request assistance like this, some airports / airlines will now ask for a doctor's letter confirming you are fit to travel with your condition.
