Traveling with Air Asia from Don Muang Airport

Travel Tips Thailand
Air Asia airplane at Nan Nakhon Airport in North Thailand

Yesterday 6 July 2017 I did fly with Air Asia from Don Muang Airport, and I (and many other people) was a bit unpleasantly surprised. Be aware that Air Asia has changed their check-in procedure. First you will have to go to a SELF CHECK-IN booth. As there are only 4 booths per check-in row you will understand that there is a cue of people. As most people (like me) are not used to use a SELF CHECK-IN there is a Air Asia service lady helping you. You will get a boarding card and if you have luggage you will get labels for your luggage.

After that if you have luggage (like me) you will have to cue again, now to drop-off your luggage. This is also self-service. But again as nobody is yet used to that there is a Air Asia service lady helping you.

The bottom line is .... you will have to cue twice and you will have to do it all by yourself. Now I understand that an airline is trying to lower the costs with self-service but due to the way it is set-up at Don Muang Airport it will result in more time consuming check-in for people with luggage.

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
