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


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.


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!

June 2017

Nikita, Jun 21, 2017 - Cool and quick local flight, enjoyed it :) And they have a free transfer from Don Mueang to Suvarnabhumi Airport if you have a flight booking, ask information officers at Don Mueang
David, Jun 13, 2017 - Almost all good. Nearly on-time departure. Plane was an Airbus, but okay and clean. Staff very nice. Being super budget airline they apparently don't rate a normal loading jet-way tube. So, portable stairs and a shuttle bus were used. No provision for people with walking/climbing difficulties -- and guess when we found out about that. Yep, at the gate. Later:; rcv'd sort of reply from 12go--- saying that most people would have tried contacting the airline direct prior to flight. Been there, tried that. rcv'd delightful canned e-mails which told us little or nothing.
Kavita, Jun 13, 2017 - Brilliant flight -- I arrived late at the check-in desk, but Air Asia was so professional and prompt - they quickly processed my boarding pass and made sure I was safely put on the plane!
Kyle, Jun 13, 2017 - Easy , quick, all worked out well
Jan, Jun 10, 2017 - The legroom was pretty much non existant. And I'm not that tall. 1m78. We were lucky it was low season and there were enoug seats free to spread out a little.
Mike, Jun 3, 2017 - hi no problems good service, even got a biscuit! The staff are lovely, l,m sure the men are as well.

May 2017

John, May 29, 2017 - Easy to book - Asia air won't accept my Irish credit card, but 12go would so happy days
Janine, May 27, 2017 - We arrived at the airport and took the lift up to the correct departure floor only to discover we had to rejoin a huge queue for the luggage check when we tried to check in, this wasn't signposted in anyway and no-one suggested this would be a problem. We are both quite small females and the legroom was less than average and quite uncomfortable. We travelled on economy before and found other the other Thai airline more than adequate.
