About Bangkok International Suvarnabhumi Airport departures
Bangkok International Suvarnabhumi Airport is located 30 km east the Bangkok city center. It is the busiest airport in the country with 65 millions passengers as a record in 2019. That would have been 2020 if the pandemic wasn’t com up. The trip to the airport from the center is by metro/train or taxi quite easily. Expect a price of 400-500 Bath by taxi and just a fraction of it by train/bus. From the airport there are Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Departures every 15 minutes by train to the center.
Top local routes
- Koh Samui, Surat Thani, Hat Yai, Krabi, Phuket, Chiang Mai, and Chiang Rai as most busy touristic flight routes.
The airport was only opened in 2006 with the idea of taking over the older Bangkok airport (Don Mueang). At a different location with much more space, this allowed the airport in Bangkok to continue to grow with many more international destinations. A large terminal was built with a 130 meter high control tower and 2 extra long runways. Soon more than 40 million passengers made use of the airport. Many low cost airlines and domestic routes started to complain about the costs at the new airport. For that reason, the old airport has been reopened after being closed for six months. Nevertheless, the passenger numbers continued to grow on average to 65 million in 2019.
The airport is centrally located in Thailand and an important point for flying to many domestic destinations. Many people from Asia and Europe also fly to Bangkok for vacation and to make a round trip. It also carries many Bangkok departures to smaller airports from international destinations to serve as a hub. Thailand has many holiday destinations, especially because of the beaches.
Bangkok airport terminal
Once you arrive at the airport you will arrive at one of the largest terminals in the world. In addition to being an important hub for other cities in Asia or to Europe, it is also a final destination for an ideal holiday or for business. There are a total of 8 floors of which we mention the most important:
- Basement level for Bangkok BKK Departures by train. Go there when you want to travel to the city center instead of the taxi.
- Level 1 for the buses and taxis. The bus can take a long time. If there is an express bus it’s a good option but the taxi is a lot faster to the center since it can maneuver easily through those extreme busy streets.
- Level 2 is the area with the baggage belts to reclaim your baggage. This is divided into International and Domestic Bangkok Airport Departures.
- Level 3 is built for the lounges and other areas.
- At Level 4 you should go and check-in for your flight. The departures area is at this level as well. This is also subdivided into domestic and international Suvarnabhumi Airport departures like level 2.
- Levels 5 and 6 are service-oriented levels.
- Level 7 is an observation deck to have beautiful views of the airport. This way you can see the two runways and all arriving and departing flights.
The terminal consists of seven wings: A and B are for domestic flights, C to G for international flights. Because the airport continues to grow considerably in terms of passengers, there will also be an expansion in terms of terminal and a third runway in the coming period.
