Air Asia moves to Don Muang Airport Oct. 1

In principal, Don Muang (DMK) is to be the home of all low-cost airlines operating from Bangkok. Nok Air and Orient Thai are already operating from DMK and now will be joined by Air Asia. Thai Airways, both international and domestic, and Bangkok Airways will remain at Suvarnabhumi BKK.

A passenger shuttle bus is going into operation to run between the two airports.

This is going to be pinned somewhen. That's why I posted it. There's a pinned thread on the Air Asia move in the Thailand Forum but not in the Bangkok Forum.

Just FYI

We arrived at Don Muang airport from Chiang Rai today. We had to take a shuttle bus from the plane to the domestic entrance. It was a little disorganised with the bus seeming to get lost going to the entrance with a large step up into the airport. Some elderly people definitely had issues navigating the aeroplane, stairs, bus and steps but were assisted by staff. A very deserted airport compared to the old days! We had to line up for a taxi and were given a ticket with the address on it to give the taxi driver. It was very controlled taxi area with the driver turning on the meter. It cost us 2 tolls 60 baht and 45 baht and 225baht to sukumvit soi 29. thanks

I'm wondering about the traffic effecting the travel time.. What time of the day did you travel on the shuttle to Suvarnabhumi Airport from Don Muang?
