Routes served by Thai AirAisa

Don Mueang International Airport is the airline’s hub with flights servicing around 50 destinations from this airport alone, including within Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan and Malaysia.

Some details of popular routes from Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport are below, but prices of flights are notoriously changeable so it's best to always book in advance and, if possible, have flexibility surrounding your departure dates to ensure you get the best deal.

Most popular domestic destinations

Thai AirAsia run a very frequent timetable of domestic flights with 11 services each day to Chiang Mai, usually priced at approximately THB800, between 04.40 and 19.25. It's a very quick journey taking just 1 ¼ hours, much faster than the train! There are also plenty of flights to Krabi and Phuket throughout the day (6 and 17 services respectively), usually costing between THB600-800.

If you're travelling to some of the popular Thai islands, Thai AirAsia also offer an Island Transfer Service to islands including Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, [Koh Tao] ](/en/travel/bangkok/koh-tao), Koh Lanta and Koh Phi Phi. This ticket includes flight, bus and ferry: for example a combination ticket from Chiang Mai to Koh Samui costs around THB1,200.

Most popular international destinations

For those wanting to head to neighbouring Vietnam, there are several options each day. Flights to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City both start from about THB1,300 with two or three departures daily. Both trips should take around 1 ½ hours. Tourists looking to head to the beach in Vietnam can catch a flight from Bangkok to Da Nang at 10.10 every day, this usually costs about THB1,700.

If you want to explore some of Thailand’s neighbours, there are plenty of scheduled departures throughout the day to Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar. You can reach Phnom Penh in under 1 ½ hours for about THB1,300. Plus there are also three flights on this route each day. Those wanting to travel to Laos can choose between Luang Prabang or Vientiane, both take about 1 ¼ hours and roughly cost THB1,300. There is one flight each day to both destinations. You can fly to Mandalay for even less, around THB1,100, with two flights a day taking under two hours.

Malaysia and Singapore can be reached easily, unsurprisingly since the AirAsia parent company are based in Kuala Lumpur. There are around five flights per day to both Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, usually costing about THB1,500 and at least two each day to Penang for a similar fare.

If you want to head further afield, Thai AirAsia run a service to China and its neighbouring territories Hong Kong and Macau. Direct flights to Shanghai take 4 ¼ hours, departing at 00.15 every day, usually priced at about THB4,800. There are more frequent flits to Hong Kong and Macau (three to each, every day) which are quicker, taking 2 ¾ and typically cost THB1,200.

Thai AirAsia aren't just a budget airline that serves SE Asia, you can also visit Tokyo on a direct flight and even connect to other AirAsia services in Kuala Lumpur to reach Australia! There are two departures each day to Tokyo, lasting 6 ½ hours from THB4,400. Flights to Melbourne and Sydney, including a transfer in Kuala Lumpur, usually cost around THB6,500 and take 13 or 14 hours

Pros

As part of a wider network, Thai AirAsia has a huge range of scheduled departures every day, enabling you to reach almost anywhere in Asia.

Unlike the process for booking connecting flights for two different companies, booking through Thai AirAsia is simple and the whole journey can be booked in one go.

A hugely important concern if you have a connecting flight is whether your initial flight will be delayed. Booking Thai AirAsia flights should minimise these concerns, and the subsequent stress, as it has been named the most punctual ASEAN airline with 96% of flights on time, according to FlightStats, a US-based flight and airport information service provider.

Thai AirAsia’s Island Transfer Service is hugely useful. Using this service allows you to pay for all of your transfers to whichever Thai island you're planning on visiting, giving you peace of mind that this is all arranged before you travel.

Cons

Unlike some of their budget competitors in the region, checked luggage costs extra on Thai AirAsia. This can sometimes mean that flights are more expensive than using other airlines. To combat this always pay for checked luggage when you're booing online, you will be faced with paying an expensive premium if you wait until you arrive at the airport.

Also there is no food or drink included on these flights. Although this is unlikely to be a problem on domestic or short-haul international flights, if you're heading further afield you will either have to bring your own food or pay for snacks on the plane.

Keep in mind

Chiang Mai and Phuket are Thai AirAsia’s secondary hubs. There is plenty of choice if you're planning on flying from one of these airports to international destinations, without having to change at Bangkok.

Anyone considering booking flights will be pleased to hear that AirAsia have been named the “World's Best Low-cost Airline” for the eighth consecutive year by Skytrax, the international air transport rating organisation.

travellers reviews

Positive reviews of Thai AirAsia tend to focus on the sheer range of possible departures every day, from Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport as well as many of the other airports served by the airline. This is especially important if you have to book a flight at short notice, Thai AirAsia will almost certainly have a departure that suits!

Customers can get annoyed by the fact that you have to pay additional fees for baggage and pay on board for refreshments, it's essential you take this into account when booking your flight and ensure that the total price you'll be paying represents a good deal!

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

12go was great easy booking and very good follow up. However the airlines were not as wonderful.our flight from Israel was two and a half hours late and the shuttle took two hours to reach don meaung We had to pay double fares to get on the next flight! What the heck! If you can’t take the heat stay out of the kitchen!

Check in process was relatively easy. Flew air Asia which charges 40 Canadian dollars per checked bag. I have flown around the world and have never paid so much to check a bag. (Typically 20-25 per bag) airport was good, airline was less the desirable.

Do not fly with thai air asia. They charged us for checking in bags. While weighing our bags she would not let us remove things to put into our carry on bags. The woman who served us had an attitude from start to finish. The flight attendants were also rude. Did not greet us or say goodbye. While giving the safety orientation, the flight attendant used my table without asking or acknowledging me. If she asked I would have been completely fine with it. Overall poor experience.

Very well organized, on time departure. For the Cambodjanen visa: you delivered what you promised. The boarder crossing is still something bizar. All the rest was ok. The guide did a good job. A suggestion: why not offer a few cool beers on the bus for 50 baht?
