Starting from 1 October 2012, AirAsia Thailand
will move its operations from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport to
Bangkok Don Muang International Airport.
In preparation for this move, AirAsia
Thailand will be performing an airport code switch from
Suvarnabhumi International Airport (SVB) to Bangkok Don Muang
International Airport (DMK) in the systemís back end from 10 pm
(2200hrs) of 27 July 2012 until 10 pm (2300hrs) of 29 July 2012,
Thailand time (GMT +7).
During the system change, AirAsia customers will be unable
to make any new bookings online, through agents, airport sales
office and travel service centres for flights going to or from
Bangkok during the travel period of 1 October 2012 onwards.
Guests on all Bangkok flights for the travel period of
1 October 2012 onwards will also be temporarily affected by not
being able to use the Manage My Booking function or web check-in.
Travellers whose travel dates are before 1 October
2012 remain unaffected. Those who intend to make travel plans
between other destinations that are not via Bangkok can continue
to do so normally (for example, flights departing from Chiang Mai
or Phuket remain unaffected).
Guests who wish to
make a booking or make changes to any flights in and out of
Bangkok with the travel period of 1 October 2012 onwards are
advised to do so before 10 pm (22.00hrs) of 27 July or after 11 pm
(23.00hrs) of 30 July 2012, Thailand time (GMT+7).
After the airport code change has been completed, guests who are
traveling to or from Bangkok from 1 October 2012 onwards will
receive an updated travel itinerary with the new airport code
(DMK). Those who have already checked in for their flights to or
from Bangkok with a travel period of 1 October 2012 onwards will
be required to check-in again.
