Internal Flights from Koh Samui to Bangkok in August

Would anyone know what the frequency of internal flights are from Koh Samui to Bangkok. Our travel agent has said they have not yet been released yet for next August but we want to be sure there will be plenty to connect with a 12.50 flight from Bangkok to London. Any advice would be great. Many thanks.

Bangkok Airways have about 20 per day in each direction.....no worries. Thai Airways just a couple.

A quick google shows there are currently 5 Bangkok Airways flights arriving at BKK before 10.20am. Plenty to choose from.

Very easy to book all your Thailand trip yourself, you don’t need a travel agent.

Just go to www.bangkokair.com and you will see August 2018 fully available to book.

Suggest you change your travel agent or better still DIY as Allie says.

Many flights to BKK daily from Koh Samui,with Bangkok Air. I would book a fairly early morning flight as you'll need to check in about 2 hours ahead if taking a international flight from Bangkok.

You've got lots of time, and I doubt the present schedule will change that much..

Thai Airways also run a flight departing Samui at 0910 arriving Bangkok at 1015. Should your onward flight be with Thai, this could provide you with a single ticket option.

Yes Bangkok Airways have flights and fares for August 2018 already on their website

Koh Samui / flight experts :- Question

If OP advises which airline they are departing from BKK ( looks like EVA Air ) would they be able to thru check their bags and CIQ in BKK ? if on one ticket as Eva Air shown as a 'code share' with Bangkok Airways

singlouissa - if booked on one ticket, then yes, bags would be through-checked, boarding passes for both flights give at check in at Samui airport and then CIQ transit in Bangkok. The bonus is that the connection is then protected and if anything goes wrong (like delays) then the airline has responsibility to look after you.

If not on the one ticket, Bangkok Air will not do this any longer, they won't through check on any separate tickets.

Cannot understand why their agent said they could not book them for Auguest
