Don Mueang, Bangkok’s original airport, has reopened with AirAsia its anchor client.
In a ceremony complete with pop music, clowns on stilts and a fashion show, the airport’s re-launch was in stark contrast to the images that hit the press this time last year, when severe floods inundated the former hub, forcing its closure.
But following a major development and modernisation effort, Don Mueang has been reborn as a new key airport for Bangkok, offering domestic and international flights from AirAsia and Thai Airways’ low-cost carrier, Nok Air.
Tax refund, duty-free and visa-on-arrival services are available and there will be 34 immigration counters dealing with departures and 26 for arrivals. There is also a free shuttle bus linking Don Mueang and the new Suvarnabhumi airport operating between 05:00 and 23:00.
The airport is about 15 miles from central Bangkok with regular bus services. Taxis are metered. www.donmuangairportonline.com
