Travel with Thai Airways International from Bangkok to Haneda Airport in Tokyo and you can book your flight online, check-in for your flight in Bangkok using automatic check-in kiosks and enjoy internet check-in and express services in Haneda.
Thailand’s national flag carrier Thai Airways or THAI flies twice daily from its home base at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok to Haneda Airport, which is located around 15 km from central Tokyo.
These non-stop flights linking the Thai and Japanese capitals can be booked through the Thai Airways website, as can flights the Thai airline operates across its global network to over 60 destinations in the Asia Pacific region, Europe and the Middle East.
Thai Airways aims to increase convenience and streamline the process of making travel arrangements, with its passengers able not only to book flights online from Bangkok to Haneda (for example) but then to also have the option of making use of an automatic check-in service at Suvarnabhumi Airport.
These new automatic check-in kiosks are designed to reduce check-in time to between two and five minutes per passenger. The machines are in service at the airport for a trial period that runs until 29 February 2016. They are located in the departure lounge on the fourth floor of Suvarnabhumi Airport’s Concourse Building D and are manned around the clock by airport staff who can advise on how to use them.
THAI passengers can check-in at the kiosks for their Bangkok to Haneda flight using their passport, ticket number or Royal Orchid Plus frequent flyer number. During the automatic check-in process a passenger is issued their boarding pass and can choose his or her own seat.
At Haneda Airport, THAI’s passengers also enjoy extra convenience with the airline’s Internet Check-in & THAI Mobile Application express services.
This includes online check-in between two and 24 hours before flight departure, advance seat selection, quick boarding pass pick-up and bag drop at the Internet/Mobile check-in counter and priority boarding.
The same services are available to THAI passengers departing from Narita Airport, which is around 60 km from central Tokyo.
In addition to Tokyo, THAI also flies to the other Japanese destinations of Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka and Sapporo. As the nation’s ultra modern and bustling capital, Tokyo offers the visitor much to see and do. Among the top attractions in the capital are The Tokyo Tower, Tokyo Skytree, Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens, the fashion and nightlife area of Shibuya and Sensoji Temple.
