Thai Airways International


Thai Airways International, Thailand's international airline, flies to eight destinations in the North (Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Lampang, Mae Hong Son, Mae Sot, Nan, Phitsanulok and Phrae) , seven destinations in the Northeast (Buri Ram, Khon Kaen, Nakhon Ratchasima, Sakon Nakhon, Nakhon Panom, Ubon Ratchathani and Udon Thani), and six destinations in the South (Hat Yai, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Narathiwat, Phuket, Surat Thani and Trang). With a fleet of mostly new planes and a fully computerized booking system, the airline also meet international safety standards. The head office in Bangkok is located at 89 Vibhavadi-Ransit Rd,

Bangkok Airways


Bangkok Airways, a smaller privately owned carrier, flies from Bangkok directly to Samui Island, Ranong and Sukhothai. It also flies to Chiang Mai (via Sukhothai) and Phuket and from Samui to U-Tapao (Pattaya) and has services linking Samui and Singapore. Ring (66 2) 229-3456 for information and booking.

Orient Thai Airlines


Orient Thai Airlines, also privately owned, has given up competing with the two airlines mentioned above for the domestic market and now only offers regianal flights to Cambodia and Singapore. However, unless its appeal to the government to extend range of its operating licence is approved, it could already be defunct by the time you read this (the government has an aviation rights policy which protects the national flag carrier).

The airline can be reached by ringing (66 2) 267-3210-5

Angel Air
The other "duckling" is the recently launched Angel Airlines, meant to be the country's second official domestic carrier, which also has been experiencing difficulty getting off the ground. If ultimately successful, and unless the government changes its protectionist policies, Angel Airlines might mean the demise of Orient Thai. The airline currently flies to Chiang Mai, Udon Thani and Phuket several times a week (using a Boeing 737-500 and a Dornier turbo-prop on Chiang Mai-Udon route), but considering that its operations are still at a fledgling stage, it might be wise to stick to the more established airlines with proven safety records.

Reservations for all the airlines can be made through any authorized travel agent or by ringing (66 2) 953-2260
