Bangkok Don Muang Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

Huge airport not a lot of flights its a joy to use. Only downside was bussed to the plane on departure found that odd with so many empty stands with jetways. Flew out to Singapore with TAA and back in from Phuket with TAA. No lines for check in passport control or security. Lots of seating both air and land side. Good selection of shops and places to eat on international departures. All in all I look forward to the next time I can use this airport.

Bangkok Don Muang Airport customer review

(Thailand)

Had to fly into DMK with Thai Air Asia. This was like visiting an old friend. In the old days DMK always functioned well unlike its new big brother. Now its even better. The domestic area had plenty of fast food eating options at prices better than BKK. Plenty of seating in gate area. Really pleased with what they have done in refurbishing DMK. Now bus connection to Mo Chit BTS station and also shuttles to BKK airport.

Bangkok Don Muang Airport customer review

Found recent comments on Don Muang very interesting. Used this airport many times in the past when I lived in Bangkok and this was the only airport in town. Back then late night departures were unpleasant. At least a dozen 747s left between 11pm and 1 am. The departure area was packed to capacity. Some staff were stressed to the limit and consequently foul tempered. Immigration staff were rude too!! The airport was a shame. All that seems to have changed for the better. The airport went through an expansion plan in the 80s and grew to be a thoroughly modern airport. Still it couldn't keep pace with traffic growth and overcrowding persisted. The international departures area was great. Great food superb view of the tarmac excellent shopping. Don Muang to its credit never slipped. Just about every airline flew to BKK. I will fly to Suvarnabhumi and will probably never get to see Don Muang again.

Good to see this airport back in operation. Security was quick and efficient. Check-in on Air Asia was a matter of a few minutes. Plenty shops and eating places both landside and airside. Obviously the airport is huge for the volume of passengers going though it. The worst parts were the somewhat lengthy walks to and from gates and the lengthy and poorly organised Taxi queues which were always a problem with this airport before. Overall a good move for the budget carriers who are using Don Muang and a good service for the passengers.

Used DMK twice and was impressed. DMK is light and spacious and has room for growth. Toilets are clean throughout and several food options exist. It's a standard 300 baht or so to get there from the centre of Bangkok. Hopefully ground transport options from DMK to other parts of Thailand will grow. Otherwise we really liked this place.

A 350 baht taxi ride from Suvarnabhumi but found the free shuttle bus for the return trip. Check in immigration etc was well organised. Airside was clean and fresh. Plenty of seating and not too many shops. Nice airport.

Bangkok Don Muang Airport customer review

I use Don Muang whenever possible although Thai keeps playing with their timetable. The central air terminal at lat phrao station is a real plus as nobody uses it! A sign in the subway telling you which exit to take would be useful! The downside is the baggage check on the Bangkok subway. They insist on opening your suitcase but never actually rummage around inside. Check-in at the terminal is swift and Thai staff take care of the bags once you arrive at Don Muang as its already tagged and security sealed on check-in at the terminal. You can now eat airside. Burger king has returned to the departure area. Its either that or get a gold card and use THAI business lounge. If Bangkok is your destination then Don Muang is streaks ahead of the new airport

Bangkok Don Muang Airport customer review

The best thing of the reopened domestic airport Don Mueang (DMK) is the vicinity to the city of Bangkok. An improved service was provided by THAI at its City Air Terminal at the Metro Station “Lad Phrao” with check-in facility including free shuttle bus to and from the airport. Besides these nothing was changed! It remains an old small nice domestic terminal. Arrive there check-in go through security check wait just a few minutes at the gate and then take off! On the way back after docking at the gate walk down to the luggage area always only after few minutes you will have your luggage and then ready for Bangkok. Frankly regarding to the departure and arrival procedures the airport fulfils its function hence a five-star-airport.

Bangkok Don Muang Airport customer review

Used Don Muang twice since its reopening for domestic routes. Couldn't detect any signs of change or improvement over recent years. It's basically just the old domestic terminal with the same ensemble of 2-3 food outlets and a souvenir shop it always had. Check in procedure as usual with the good old x-ray machine for the bigger luggage in front of the check-in area. After security check there's nothing but rows and rows of chairs and a toilet. Transfer from Suvarnabumi is chaotic and can take hours depending on time of day and traffic situation. All in all a place that should have better remained closed once and for all.

Bangkok Don Muang Airport customer review

Flew from Don Muang to Phuket in mid April very uninviting and old airport if they are going to be using this airport for long term domestic operations then it needs a facelift. Also note there are absolutely no shops whatsoever after the security check just the gates and toilets.
