Airport rail link fully operational

Bangkok’s airport rail link has made a major breakthrough with passengers using Thai International and Bangkok Airways can now check-in and drop off their luggage at the city’s Makkasan Station.  The service is available up to 13 hours prior to the listed departure time.  Other airlines are expected to follow with similar arrangements.

There are two train services: the Express Line, a 15-minute non-stop ride from Makkasan terminal to the airport and the City Line, a commuter train that stops at eight stations and takes about 30 minutes to travel.

Tickets for the Express Line are Bt150 (US$5) per trip, while fares on the City Line range from Bt15 to Bt45 (45 cents and US$1.50) per person, depending on the distance they travel. www.bangkokairportonline.com
