Due to increased security measures at international airports, the Airport Authority of Thailand recommends that passengers arrive at least three hours prior to departure
Thai Airways International requests the assistance of passengers flying out of Suvarnabhumi Airport, to check in 3 hours in advance for international flights and 1 hour in advance for domestic flights, in order to decrease traffic jams routed to and from the airport.
Flg. Off. Apinan Sumanaseni, THAI’s President, said that following the official opening of Suvarnabhumi Airport on 28 September 2006, there have been several people coming out to the airport who are both passengers and observing public, both inside and outside the airport terminal area. This has resulted in traffic congestion on the roads within the airport area. Therefore, the company requests the assistance of passengers traveling THAI flights to check in as follows:
Domestic flights: Arrive at the airport for check-in at least 1 hours before actual departure time
International flights: Arrive at the airport for check-in at least 3 hours before actual departure time
Passengers flying with THAI may check in to flights at Suvarnabhumi Airport on the 4th Floor, as follows:
Gate 1: Passengers flying Royal First Class and Royal Silk Class for international flights may check-in at Counter Rows A and B
Gate 2: Passengers flying Royal Silk Class and Economy Class for domestic flights may check-in at Counter Row C
Gate 4: Passengers flying Economy Class for international flights may check-in at Counter Rows H and J.
