Travel alert: Don Mueang passengers advised to get to airport 3 hours before flight

If you like leaving it to the last minute to get the airport – Don Mueang airport bosses have bad news for you.

Passengers flying out of the airport today and tomorrow need to arrive THREE hours before take-off because there’ll be heavy air traffic due to the Thai Air Force show taking place to mark Children’s Day tomorrow.

That applies to both domestic and international flights, Don Mueang airport boss Petch Chancharoen said, according to Bangkok Post.

The airport will be used for air show rehearsals today and the show tomorrow. 

A total of 37 flights will be cancelled, but airlines will work with the airport to adjust timetables and reschedule flights to minimise flight delays.

If you’re travelling via Vibhavadi Rangsit Road, make sure you leave more time than usual as heavy traffic is expected.

You should be notified by your airline of any changes to your flight, and you can check the Don Mueang airport website too.
