The 30-billion baht Suvarnabhumi Airport Link was opened on 23 August 2010, after multiple delays. The Airport Rail Link (ARL) is operated by SRTET, a subsidiary company of the State Railway of Thailand. The standard gauge line is 28.6 kilometers long and is elevated for most its length, running mostly above existing regional railway lines and parallel to the No. 7 Motorway and Si Rat Expressway. There is a short at-grade/underground segment as the line approaches the passenger terminal building of Suvarnabhumi Airport.

The airport operates 4 airport express bus routes to downtown Bangkok. The buses are air-conditioned with ample luggage space. The fare is 150 baht for the entire route. Passengers can get on the bus on the first floor of the terminal.

Additionally, 12 air-conditioned city bus routes operated by Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA) serve the airport's dedicated bus terminal.


The airport has 5 main access routes. Among these the most convenient route is via the Bangkok Chon Buri Motorway (Highway No. 7). Another main airport entrance is in Samut Prakan province via the expressway from Bang Na to Bang Pakong.

The airport has provided 5 convenient entrance routes. The main route is via the motorway in the north of Bangkok, directly connecting Bangkok's downtown and Chon Buri province, the industrial and harbor city in eastern Thailand. However, another main airport entrance is located in Samut Prakan province, connecting an elevated highway in the south of Bangkok which lies from Bang Na to Bang Pakong.

Car Rental in Thailand

You can rent cars in most cities and major towns certainly anywhere with a large tourist intake.

Motorcycles are ideal for reaching Thailand’s out-of-the way beaches and mountain views. As with cars, you can hire them in tourist spots, particularly in Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Pattaya, Phuket and the larger islands. Prices are as low as 3 to 5 dollars per day, depending on the machine. Check any vehicle thoroughly before you take it away: you may be liable to pay for any previously unnoticed damage.

Public taxi

Metered taxis are available on the ground level of the airport, one level down from the arrivals hall.

Since 1 February 2007 the 700 Baht departure tax is included in the price of flight tickets.
