Below is the official press release from Bangkok.

BANGKOK, Thailand — Oct 27, 2011 — Bangkok is served by two airports. Suvarnabhumi Airport, the main gateway to Thailand with 120 international and domestic airlines, remains open. It is operating normally and handling around 76 flights per hour including all scheduled international arrivals and departures.

Suvarnabhumi Airport is also the main connector for international visitor arrivals to transfer to and from domestic flights serving tourist destinations throughout Thailand such as Phuket, Chiang Mai and Surat Thani. All domestic flights are also operating as per usual.

Don Mueang Airport, the old international airport located about 30 km northeast of Suvarnabhumi Airport, is closed until November 1st due to flooding. The two domestic airlines operating from Don Mueang, which are Nok Air and Orient Thai Airlines, have temporarily switched their operations to Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Useful Contact Numbers:

Nok Air:

Please do remember that the flooding is currently happening in Bangkok only, it is not affecting other areas like Chiang Mai, Phuket, Krabi and Hatyai.

  1. It’s really good to know in the critical situation, Bangkok airport authority still serving Air support to the passengers. I also have good experience of Don Mueang Airport because I travel Bangkok couple of times. It’s really sad to know this port is closed and lots of people are suffering for flood. I hope soon they will recover from this situation. Thanks

  2. Hi Harold,
