The Airport Link rapid-transit line from central Bangkok to Suvarnabhumi will launch its air check-in service today at Makkasan City Air Terminal, five months after the rail service started last August.
Initially, the check-in service will be available only for people flying with Thai Airways International and Bangkok Airways.
“Passengers who want to check in and load their luggage can do this from three to 13 hours before departing,” said Yuthana Thapcharoen, governor of the State Railway of Thailand (SRT).
There are two train services: the Express Line, a 15-minute non-stop ride from Makkasan terminal to the airport, and the City Line, a commuter train that stops at eight stations.
Tickets for the Express Line are Bt150 per trip, while fares on the City Line range from Bt15 to Bt45 per person, depending on the distance they travel.
The whole City Line journey takes about 27 minutes.
