    Pattaya Information

    Situated at midway between Pattaya and Rayong (about 40km from each city), U-Tapao International Airport is part of the Royal Thai Navy Air Division in Sattahip, serving a small number commercial flights to/from Phuket, Koh Samui, Inchon, Vientiane and Luang Prabang as well as charter airplanes, military flights and a range of air humanitarian missions.

    During the Vietnam War, U-Tapao was used as the air base for U.S. Air Force and also as an alternative airport to Don Muang. It can handle large commercial airplanes, such as Boeing 747 and Airbus 380. But due to its close proximity to Suvarnabhumi International Airport, it no longer serves commercial flights to/from Bangkok but still maintains a status as a reserved airport.

  • Airport Layout and Facilities

    The airport has one terminal building for both domestic and international arrivals/departures. Other airport facilities and services include:

    • Souvenir shop
    • Restaurant
    • Duty Free
    • Coffee shop
    • Internet café
    • Hotel & tour information desk
    • Postal service


    Getting to Pattaya and nearby seaside towns from U-Tapao Airport is convenient. On the first floor of the arrival hall, the taxi/bus service desk can help arrange transportation to your final destination, whether Bangkok, Pattaya, Phe Pier (to Koh Samet), or Trat Pier (to Koh Chang).

    You will also find a car rental service desk nearby.
