About Bangkok Airways

Bangkok Airways was founded in 1968 and originally known as Sahakol Air. In 1986, it switched from charter to scheduled flights in response to increasing tourism in the area. It is a Thai regional carrier, based at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok. It was also Thailand's first privately owned airline. Bangkok Airways operates routes exclusively within Asia and has secondary hubs at Phuket International Airport and Chiang Mai International Airport. Its primary focus airports are Krabi Airport and Ko Samui Airport, which the airline built. It has a fleet of over 30 Airbus and ATR aircraft.

Bangkok Airways flights are available to 30 Asian destinations, including many popular holiday spots such as Xi'an in China, Siem Reap in Cambodia, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Pattaya in Thailand, Da Nang in Vietnam and Hong Kong in China. Aeroflot, Finnair, SilkAir, Korean Air and 16 other airlines have codeshare agreements with the airline. It is not a member of any of the major airline alliances. Bangkok Airways reviews are available if you would like further information on the airline.

Online check-in is not available to minors travelling alone, groups of more than 9 passengers, or passengers who need special assistance. Passengers who check in online for an international flight will still need to go to a check-in counter at the airport to have their documents checked to receive their boarding card. It is also possible to check in at the airport. Airport check-in counters will close 40 minutes prior to the departure of a domestic flight and 50 minutes prior to the departure of an international flight.
