Airline Review: Bangkok Airways

On a recent trip to the Andaman Sea I flew with Bangkok Airways. I flew from Bangkok to Phuket to spend a couple of days in Khaolak.

Bangkok Airways positions itself as the Boutique Airline of Asia. And I was quite impressed by the price-performance ratio. I paid 3000 Baht for the one way flight. I really like when I see the end price right at the beginning. I hate it when you think that you have found a very cheap ticket and they start adding more costs throughout the process and at the end you end up paying nearly double the initial price.

However, with Bangkok Airways, this is not the case. It said right at the beginning that the price was 3000 Baht and when I paid, the price was still 3000 Baht.

Great Service

The ground staff is very friendly. When we checked in, we were greeted friendly and they made no drama when we had a couple of extra kilos. They also have a lounge at Bangkok Airport where you can eat and drink as much as you want which is a great service I think. We were starving as our flight was at 7 in the morning and we haven’t had breakfast before. They had delicious sandwiches and good coffee.

Tasty Food

The flight only took an hour and we got served drinks and a very tasty sandwich. I was surprised that we got something to eat. Most airlines don’t offer anything on such short flights. I think this was the tastiest in-flight snack I had so far… it was so good that i stole the sandwich of my neighbor who was sleeping the entire flight 🙂

    Sounds like a good airline… I hate LCC which add so many costs. I also prefer to be told right at the beginning how much I have to pay! Will try to fly with Bangkok Airways when I get to Thailand soon!

    I’ve flown with them from Bangkok to Samui a couple of times and they’ve been great. I also did Samui to Singapore which was a bit more of a stretch but still good. Bit cheeky taking your neighbour’s sandwich!

    I haven’t flown Bangkok Airways because I can get my airline points with Thai Air. After reading your review I would certainly try them if they offered points!

    I have flown Bangkok Air from BKK to Koh Samui. It was the ONLY option as the gentleman that owns Bangkok Air also has the rights, etc to the air space in and out of Koh Samui. I am a 1K flyer on United, part of the Star Alliance which Thai Air is also a part of. Thai Air did have flights in/out of Koh Samui although very limited and MUCH more expensive. My flight from BKK to Koh Samui was on a regional turbo prop so I was not afforded some of what you write about. Regardless, you have a great site/blog and yearn do do what you do full time.
