For over thirty-six years, Bangkok Airways has constantly strived to find new methods to efficiently run its operations while ensuring the highest safety-standards in both ground and flight controls. By continually updating its systems to stay up-to-date with the latest modern advances, Bangkok Airways provides its passengers with an added level of convenience and comfort of modern-day travel.
AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL
Bangkok Airways has vested in Aerothai, a company with a long track record in the aviation industry, to manage air traffic control at Samui, Sukhothai, and Trat Airport. Its objective is the provision of safe, expeditious, and orderly flow of air traffic.
Aerothai's air traffic control system covers a radius of 35 nautical miles and up to an altitude of 11, 000 feet from each airport. The Meteorology Department also installed its high-tech weather equipment at all airports to give Bangkok Airways up-to-date weather information.
Bangkok Airways has linked up with the world's top Global Distribution Systems: AMADEUS, TRAVEL SKY, TOPAZ, TRAVEL PORT (Galileo, Worldspan, Apollo) ABACUS, AXESS, INFINI and SABRE. This gives the airline direct access to more than 100, 000 travel agencies in every major destination worldwide; therefore, passengers instantly book their seats on Bangkok Airways through those travel agents.
In addition, Bangkok Airways has Interline Traffic Agreements with international airlines such as All Nippon Airways, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Czech Airlines, Thai Airways International, and Swissair. Passengers can make Bangkok Airways' flight reservations and purchase tickets through those airlines. The airline also has the codeshare agreement with Ethihad Airways, EVA Air, Air Berlin, KLM, Air France and Malaysian Air.
Bangkok Airways has also signed an agreement with Sabre to upgrade its information systems. The airline implemented these new reservations and departure control systems, which included the Sabre Passenger Reservation System, Sabre ACSI airport check-in system, Sabre Steady State Weight and Balance System, and a suite of Sabre QIK products for the airline's operations. The Sabre Airline Solutions offers instant access to market leading reservations and departure control, thus enhancing flight capacity and functionality.

Chiang Mai/Samui/Phuket/Pattaya, Moving to & fro2003-10-12 20:00:13 by cl
Taking my second trip to Thailand for 3 weeks during November. Was in BKK and Phuket last time.
This time, arriving in BKK for a couple of days, then I want to go to Chiang Mai, hike in the mountains and take cooking classes, go to Samui, Phuket again, and Pattaya.
I've realized that there are ways to get to these places directly without necessary going through BKK airport each time....y, but at the same time, I want to leave when I'm ready to leave.
I figure I can just keep the number to Thai Air handy (as I did last time I traveled Thailand), go to any local travel agent there, simply book online while there, or, just go straight to the airport.
Does anyone have experience with this? November is the start of the high season, but not sure how busy it'll really be.
I enjoyed Laos alot2005-03-04 10:48:03 by wat2dowat2do
I went in 2001. Bought a "package" from a Bangkok travel agent that included visa for crossing Thai Laos border up at Chang Rai, a boat trip down the Mekong for a few days, overnight accomodation at a french owned riverbank hotel, meals and dropped us off at Luang Prabang. The travel agent also included air tickets from Luang Prabang back to BKK. Not really an organised package tour, so to speak... wonderful experience, but I would warn against hiking or travelling in the back country or in a small group. Read warnings about land crossings. Stick with an organised tour in a mainstream area.
If you're in the region anyways, tack on a few days in Siam Reap in Cambodia. You can fly in and out of BKK. It was as memorable as Laos for different reasons. (architechure vs the people)
