Flights to Bangkok
Bangkok is one of the largest hubs in Asia for air travel and home to one of the busiest airport in Southeast Asia. Nearly every airline that flies to Thailand and other parts of Asia fly into Bangkok. Therefore, competition among airlines is stiff and prices of air tickets are often low. Bangkok has two airports i.e. Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Muang Airport both located about 30 km from the city. Suvarnabhumi Airport is the main airport, handling both international and domestic flights. The old Don Muang airport handles mainly domestic flights as well as charter flights.
