          Thailand’s air transport has grown rapidly since the World War II. The first Thai airport was Don Mueang International Airport, which started providing service since in 1914 and was closed in 2006 when Suvarnabhumi International Airport was officially opened. However, Don Mueang Airport was reopened again in 2007 for domestic flights.

          These days we have many international airlines from many countries all over the world operating from Don Mueang and Suvarnabhumi, making these some of the most important airports in South East Asia.

          There are also international airports in tourist popular provinces of Thailand such as Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phuket, Hat Yai, Udon Thani, and Krabi.

          This network of airports bolsters the Thai tourism industry and encourages those tourists who don’t want to spend too much of their time travelling by bus, van, or boat.
