Information for Transit Passengers

Passengers in transit at a Thailand airport have a number of options depending on the length of their time in transit.  Information desks and desks specific to transit information are located at strategic points around the arrivals area of Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport.  With only a few hours, there are a number of activities around the airport, including duty free shopping, outstanding restaurants, and internet/telephone centers. 

If you’re ‘in transit’ for longer periods, perhaps as long as eight hours, Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok is only about 25 kilometers from the heart of Bangkok and the provinces nearby the airport offer some interesting attractions. Particularly with the addition of the airport link train, which allows visitors to get into central Bangkok in around 15 minutes, it’s possible that visitors on long layovers can go into town for lunch, shopping, or a little sightseeing.  Be aware however, that the airport is often extremely busy and it is advisable to return to the airport two hours prior to your flight’s departure time.
