Suvarnabhumi Fast Track Service

Recommended Posts

I've travelled business class a few years ago and also have made over a dozen trips in to Thailand in the last 9 years. So I may be blind. What I want to know is: is there signage at immigration indicating this "fast track" service. If so, I've never noticed it, can someone explain what to look for?

Thanks.

Thanks LMan. I've noticed it's a Thai Airways sign. I'm flying back to bkk early Oct business class with United. Are there other fast track lines, or does everyone use the advertised Thai line? Plus, do I get a card/pass from the steward on the plane since I'm in business class? How does that work? Do all business class flyers able to use "fast track"?

Paying for Fast Track and people wonder why immigration is so slow.

Connect the dots.

Thai fasttrack is for Thai-passengers only.

There's a fasttrack location opposite gate D6 afaik maybe there are others, but that's the one I use on arriving.

Normally every airline landing at BKK gives fasttrack cards to business class passengers.

On departure you'll get your card at check-in.

Have a good trip

On the 23/8/2012. I flew with Qatar Airways from BKK to Doha on to Manchester. I checked in online and joined the queue for internet check-in. I was given 3 fast track vouchers just for checking in online. I didnt realise you get your own immigration guy. A very fast and effective service, but I dont think I would have paid for it.

Its a little like sex really. Over in 5 minutes and great if its free, but paying for it. I leave that to others. No thanks.

My last three arrivals at BKK from NRT on UA, in Business Class, I was given a Fast Track Immigration card on the plane. I am pretty sure everyone in Business Class got one of these. The Arriving Fast-Track Immigration area is between the East and West Halls, flip the card over for a detailed map. I haven't used these cards as the regular Immigration Hall first passed - depends on the gate the UA flight arrives at - has always been empty.

I have also been given a Fast-Track Departing card with UA in Business Class departing BKK over ~ 20 departures over the past 3 years, at check-in. I have a used a few of these.

I think it important for people to detail departure or arrival as the Fast-Track Departing areas - there are three I think, one for TG and then two more, roughly near the two new departure halls. (This my have changed since I was last there ~ 5 weeks ago.)

Maybe they don't offer this service, or the crew has instructions to distribute them sparingly.

You could ask on your next flight.tongue.png

On one of my Qatar flights the crew forgot, and when I asked I got an embarrassed " Sorry sir " and she rushed to get each business passenger his/her card. biggrin.png

My experience with Emirates is that they forget to hand those fast track card quite often.

Now i fly with Turkish and there is a ground staff handing out the cards while coming of the airplane.

Not all airlines hand out those cards as they have to pay for it.

I've been on several flights where they haven't had any, so I've just made sure I take my boarding card stub that's marked J or C class.

Having said that, only once did I get asked and have to explain it, and the bloke was fine with my explanation.

I bet Ive stood in that line 100 times and the wait is never more than twenty minutes. I am often faster out of Imm than my luggage.

Outbound is the problem.

Sit on a plane 20 hours, orders and pays service to sit more. Gotta be a meme for this.
