*Customs/immigration/quarantine (I.C.Q) requirements do not apply to international routes. In general, the minimum connection time (MCT) at Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) is 75 minutes and at Phuket Airport (HKT) 90 minutes. However, the MCT required between Bangkok Airways and some airlines may vary. For more information, please contact your travel agency or Bangkok Airways call center on 1771 or +66 (0) 2270 6699 or via email: reservation@bangkokair.com For inbound travel, Bangkok Airways does not accept checks for both passengers and baggage from international/domestic flights to connect to a PG flight if two separate tickets have been issued. The passenger must drop off the baggage and check in again at the Bangkok Airways check-in counter to obtain a PG boarding pass. For those traveling by international air, the passenger must also clarify customs and immigration. Bangkok Airways strongly recommends that travelers issue the ticket in a subjunctive ticket instead of several separate tickets, in order to avoid trouble at the connection point and enjoy fearless travel. For more information, please contact our Call Centre 1771 or +66 (2) 270 6699. In the past, Bangkok Airways has mainly checked in luggage for people traveling with separate tickets.

It was a blessing for people who were looking for a cheap way to fly from other continents to z.B. Ko Samui, as buying a single ticket from their partner airlines was very expensive. Ms Usanee Sangsingkeo (second from left), the current chairman of Thai Airways, said the national airline and Bangkok Airways have had a good long-standing relationship for more than 20 years. In 2003, the two airlines entered into an interline agreement that allowed passengers to purchase tickets and travel comfortably on connections. This new agreement is set to become a codeshare agreement to increase passenger comfort on more connections between the two airlines. It will also help strengthen Thailand`s aviation industry, support the Thai economy, increase tourist arrivals to the country, and make Thailand the ASEAN hub. It took off in 1968 as Sahakoi Air and initially offered air taxi flights. In 1986, it began to operate scheduled flights, with the introduction of a number of domestic flights within Thailand. And in 1989, it was renamed Bangkok Airways, which is still known today. Bangkok Airways is not currently a member of an airline alliance. However, the airline has a series of codeshare agreements with a number of other airlines, which allow it to offer scheduled flights more often.

Passengers traveling with the participating airline and having a connecting flight with Bangkok Airways via Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Singapore, Yangon and Phuket Gateway can obtain a boarding pass for both sectors at the check-in counter at the departure airport. . . .
