You may already know that Bangkok has two international airports, which are Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK) and Don Muang International Airport (DMK).

Both airports offer international and domestic flights.

This post explains how to travel between Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Muang Airport, which is helpful for anyone who needs to transfer between these airports.

Here are the choices of transportation available between the two airports.

Free Airport Bus Link

On the side of the white bus, you can see the full name of this service, which is "Shuttle Bus, AIRPORT BUS LINK - SUVARNABHUMI - DON MUEANG". It's a free shuttle service that runs between Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Muang Airport.

This free shuttle bus takes you between the two international airports in Bangkok, Thailand.

From Suvarnabhumi Airport, you can take the bus on the second floor, which is the Passenger Arrival Terminal, outside gate 3. You will see a shuttle bus counter. Just show the staff your plane ticket or boarding pass to get on the bus.

When you arrive, from Don Muang Airport, the bus will drop you off on the 4th floor, which is the Passenger Departure Terminal, outside gate 5.

Note that at Don Muang Airport, Terminal 1 is for international flights, while Terminal 2 is for domestic flights.

At Don Muang Airport, you can take the shuttle bus on the ground level floor, in front of Terminal 1, gate 6.

The shuttle from Suvarnabhumi Airport drops you off at Departure Level 3, between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2.

The shuttle service operates from 5 a.m. until midnight, and runs every 20 minutes or less frequently, depending on the time of the day. The journey takes 1-1.5 hours.

Public Buses And Vans

If you miss the free shuttle, you can take the yellow air-conditioned bus number 554 and 555, between Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Muang Airport. The bus fare is 35 baht and the journey takes 1-1.5 hours.

Van number 555 offers the same service for 50 baht. The trip normally takes about 50 minutes. If you have large baggage, you have to pay for an extra seat, since the vans have limited storage space.

All public buses and vans operate from the Bus Terminal at Suvarnabhumi Airport. To get to the Bus Terminal, take the free, white shuttle called "Express Route 4-2".

You can take "Express Route 4-2" on the 2th floor, which is the same floor as the Passenger Arrival Terminal. When you exit through gate 4, you will see two parallel roads in front of you. Cross the first road to the pedestrian path, which is located between the two parallel roads. The "Express Route 4-2" stop is about 50 meters to your left. The ride takes 10-15 minutes.

Note that hotel vans and limousines also pick up customers in this area.

The taxi stand can be found on the first floor. A taxi between the two airports costs 400-500 baht.
