THAI AirAsia bookings to/from Bangkok will temporarily suspended from July 27-29, as the carrier prepares for its impending shift from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Don Mueang International Airport, effective October 1 (TTG Asia e-Daily, June 26, 2012).
In preparation for the move, Thai AirAsia will be performing an airport code switch from Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK) to Bangkok Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) from 22.00 on July 27 till 22.00 on July 29, Thailand time (GMT +7).
During this period, Thai AirAsia customers will be unable to make any new bookings online, through travel consultants, airport sales offices or travel service centres, for flights to/from Bangkok scheduled to depart from October 1, 2012 onwards. Guests on all Thai AirAsia Bangkok flights scheduled to depart from October 1, 2012 will also be unable to use the Manage My Booking or web check-in services.
Customers whose travel dates are before October 1, 2012, or who intend to make travel arrangements between other destinations that are not via Bangkok, remain unaffected. Guests who wish to make a booking/changes to flights in/out of Bangkok and departing from October 1, 2012 onwards are advised to do so before 22.00 on July 27 or after 23.00 on July 30.
After the airport code change has been implemented, guests who are travelling to/from Bangkok from October 1, 2012 onwards will receive an updated travel itinerary with the new airport code (DMK). Those who have already checked in for their flights to/from Bangkok with a travel period of October 1, 2012 onwards will be required to check in again.
