Don Muang Airport

Bangkok Airport Information

In October 2012 Don Muang Airport reopened to take the pressure off Suvarnabhumi International Airport. It will now be the main hub for budget and domestic flights, including Air Asia and Nok Air. A Skytrain link isn’t due until 2016 so the easiest and quickest way to get here is via taxi, although there is also a bus from the city centre and for transfer to Suvarnabhumi. Although this 90-year-old airport might not pretty, with recent renovations and less air traffic, travelling via Don Muang is usually trouble-free.

Currently Air Asia, Nok Air, Orient Thai, Solar Air and P.C. Air fly in and out of Don Muang

The Airport

Don Muang Airport has a simple layout, with two levels. The Departure Hall is on the second floor, and all airlines have their check-in counters there. Other facilities on this floor include money exchange counters, restaurants, souvenir shops and VIP lounges. On the first floor is the Arrivals Hall. There are also a few fast food outlets, snack bars, an internet café, banks, money exchange counters, souvenir shops, medical service, airport limousine service and car rentals by major brands.


Don Muang Airport Transfers

From Don Muang to Town by Taxi

The Airport is around 24km from the centre of town and currently the easiest way to travel to and from Don Muang Airport is via taxi. This usually takes between 30 minutes and an hour depending on traffic. The approximate fare to the airport will be around 350 baht. Leaving the airport via the taxi rank will incur a 50-baht surcharge and there is sometimes a long queue for taxis.

From Don Muang to Town by Bus or Train

The cheapest way to get here is via Bus No 29, which leaves from the Siam area and costs around 20 baht, although this can take a bit longer than a taxi-ride and there will be little room for luggage. For the adventurous another option is the train, (service hours: 06:00-20:00) right opposite the airport building, where you can board a train bound for Hua Lamphong (Central Railway Station), located near Bangkok’s Chinatown. Trains are infrequent (about every hour), take an hour and will be busy, as they are also on the main line to Chiang Mai.

From Don Muang Airport to Suvarnabhumi International Airport

It’s almost 50km to Suvarnbhumi airport. Again, taxi is the quickest and most hassle-free option, with the average journey taking around 45 minutes. If you want to take the bus, look for numbers 554 or 555.

Don Muang Airport Facilities

There is a 7-Eleven Store flight side offering drinks and snacks at regular prices rather than at ‘airport’ prices.
