Thailand’s main international hub, Bangkok, has two international airports: Suvarnabhumi (BKK) and Don Muang (DMK). Other international airports include Chiang Mai (CNX) in the north and Phuket (HKT), Krabi (KBV), Surat Thani (URT), Ko Samui (USM) and Hat Yai (HDY) in the south.
Flights from the US and Canada
Thai Airways offers convenient flights from LA to Bangkok, with a one-hour stop in Seoul. Plenty of other airlines run to Bangkok from East and West Coast cities with one stop en route; it’s generally easier to find a reasonable fare on flights via Asia than via Europe, even if you’re departing from the East Coast. Air Canada has the most convenient service to Bangkok from the largest number of Canadian cities.
Flights from the UK and Ireland
The fastest and most comfortable way of reaching Thailand from the UK is to fly nonstop from London to Bangkok with Qantas, British Airways or Thai Airways, a journey of about eleven and a half hours.
Flights from Australia
There’s no shortage of scheduled flights to Bangkok from Australia, with direct services from major cities operated by Thai Airways, Qantas and half a dozen others (around nine hours from Sydney), and plenty of indirect flights via Asian hubs, which take at least eleven and a half hours.
