The number of cheap flights to Thailand from Australia have increased significantly over the last decade with over a million people flying between the two countries every year. You might be surprised to learn that there are over 60 different airports in the country of Thailand. More than two dozen of those airports offer commercial flights, but only a handful offer regularly scheduled international flights. If you are looking for cheap flights to Thailand, then it’s important to identify which of these airports is closest to your destination before booking a flight.
If you are going on a Bangkok holiday – the most popular Thai destination for international travellers – then you will most likely be flying into Don Mueang International Airport or Suvarnabhumi Airport, known as Old Bangkok International and New Bangkok International, respectively. Though Don Mueang was once the primary airport in Thailand and the hub for Thai Airways International, it is now primarily used for connecting flights.
If you are taking a non-stop flight from Australia to Thailand, then it is more likely that you will be flying into the Suvarnabhumi Airport. The commercial airlines currently running regular international trips out of Suvarnabhumi include: Bangkok Airways, Orient Thai Airlines, Thai AirAsia, Thai Airways International and the new Thai Tiger Airways. The latter specialises in low fares, making it your most likely source of cheap flights to Thailand though as a new company it is not yet offering the same number of flights as larger and more established companies like TAI.
