When you have checked in, you go to the first floor where the departures will take place. Upon arrival, you will land on an 11,155-foot runway. Then the plane drives to the gate where you can get off. This is on first floor. Then you go to the ground floor for your luggage.
Last year, there were 11,333,548 passengers in 2019. That were 80 thousand Chiang Mai arrivals and departures. The airport has been growing steadily for years, partly due to the holidaymakers who know where to find Thailand. The busiest routes are to Bangkok and then slightly more to Don Mueang Airport than Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Then come the beach destinations such as Phuket, Rayon-Pattaya and Krabi. There are also international Chiang Mai Airport arrivals. These mainly come from the region with Shanghai-Pudong in the lead, followed by Honk Kong, Guangzhou, Seoul, Kunming, Taipei, Kuala Lupur, Singapore, Macau and Hangzhou.
