Nok Air Flying to Hua Hin starting on 15 November 2013. There will be 3 flights each week, on Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays, which will be ideal for weekend visitors. The flights will originate from Don Muang and the 30 minute flight will leave at 1915, arriving in Bo Fai at 1945. The return to Bangkok, Don Muang will be at 2010, arriving at 2050.
Again these flights begin in November. We’ll see if they continue after the end of the high season next spring.
This might mean a few less cars on the local roads and more fares for the local taxis. There will certainly be a taxi queue at the airport with taxis and tuk-tuks but the orange and green songtaos also go to the airport.
The budget carrier has added several new routes recently both within Thailand and to Burma and Laos.
More on this as we hear of it.
