Bangkok Flights generally operate from Suvarnabhumi International Airport, which is the newer main airport. Higher-end domestic airlines such as Bangkok Airways operate flights out of this airport too. But low-cost carriers generally use the older airport Don Mueang.
Travel to central Bangkok is about 30 km away from Suvarnabhumi Airport. The Airport Rail Link City Line is the most convenient and quickest way to travel back and forth between this airport and downtown Bangkok. The rail link station is located in Basement B of the passenger terminal. The travel time is around 30 minutes and leaves every 12-15 minutes.
A public van is another cheap way to travel to downtown Bangkok from Suvarnabhumi Airport. The pick-up spot is outside gates 1 and 8 of the Arrival Terminal on the first floor and departs every 20 minutes.
Taxi is the most convenient option as it will bring you straight to your hotel. Taxis are available at the first-floor Passenger Terminal outside of gates 4 and 7. It is recommended to take a metered taxi. Don’t be pressured into negotiating a non-metered fare. This is an illegal practice. Be aware that you will be asked to pay tolls and airport tax which may or may not be included in the price.
Don Mueang International Airport is the other older Bangkok airport, which is now used for budget airlines and it costs more to travel to downtown Bangkok because it is located a little further out.
The free shuttle runs to and from Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Mueang with a travel time of anywhere from 50 minutes to two hours depending on the time of day and traffic. Taxis between the two airports cost approximately 350-450 Baht plus road tolls and airport tax fees.
The AOT (Airports of Thailand) has prescribed guidelines and regulations for carrying liquids on domestic flights to any airport in the country.
The agency has a procedure for the screening of passengers and airline staff on each departing flight which does not apply to liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) or other materials like medicines, milk or infant nutritions. Medicines, milk and infant nutritions in “appropriate quantity are permitted to be taken on board.”
Here is a summary of the procedures concerning the LAGs:
For LAGs that are personal belongings:
1.1 LAGs must be contained in a container of size not over 100 ml. (Containers over 100 ml. are not permitted to be taken on board, even if it contains less than 100 ml. of LAGs).
In Australia, airlines typically do not have any quantity limit on organic powders carried onboard. This includes powdered foods and powdered baby formula. That being said, there are quantity restrictions when it comes to inorganic powders.
When bringing inorganic powdered items, they must be in containers not exceeding 350 millilitres in volume. Each person is also only allowed to carry onboard 350 grams. Passengers are also not allowed to tip powders out to meet the 350ml threshold.
Organic Powder Examples
Inorganic Powder Examples
Note: In some cases, items may contain certain powders or granular material inside that may qualify as inorganic powders. If you are unsure whether the item will pass the airport’s screening, it is best to pack it in checked-in baggage.
Cremated human remains are exempt.
When flying from Australia, travellers are required to put any liquid, aerosol, or gel items in containers of 100 millilitres in volume or 100 grams in weight. All the containers should also fit inside a re-sealable plastic bag.
Additionally, containers larger than 100 millilitres or 100 grams that contain liquids, aerosols, or gels will not be allowed through the screening point, even if they are only partially filled.
At the screening point from an Australian international terminal or Sydney International Airport, all liquids in your possession are required to be presented to security screening officers.
Examples of Liquids and Aerosols
Examples of Gel Items
Note: All aerosol containers must have a locking device or a fitted cap.
For medical items, you will be required to present the items along with proof. Baby products and non-prescription medicines, including special dietary products, required during the flight are exempt.
Domestic flights in Australia do not have restrictions on how much powder, fine dry particles, or liquids passengers can carry during the domestic leg. However, the restrictions are strictly applied for international flights.
