From Udon to Phuket via Don Muang?

Post by lassebasse » September 27, 2022, 5:17 pm

Planning to go to Phuket next month. The only direct flight from Udon will arrive in Phuket at 20:00 which I think is a bit late and I have looked at other options and found the following:

Nok Air Udon to DMK 09:30 -- 10:30
Air Asia DMK to HKT (Phuket) 11:45 -- 13:05

Now I will have checked in luggage and the big question is do I have enough time for this change of flights?

I see your pain with that late of a check-in to your hotel there is not much left in the night.

Have you considered driving down to Khon Kaen for a better timed flight? The drive time is a wash with the layover time and stress with re-checking bags etc.

That seems a good option. I've never thought of looking for flight options for KK before. I guess its max 2 hours from Udon taking it easy?

KK airport has been and, is in the process of being renovated/extended. It looks good and makes for an easy passage now.

The only problem is the roads to drop off and pick up can get a bit congested compared to Udon as there isnt as much space. From Udon ring Road to KK airport is about 1.5 hours on a normal run.

Just thought of one other problem. They still dont have any airport lounges?!
