Ferry-flight advice please

Im returning in March from Koh Tao to Samui on the 9.30 ferry which is due in at 11.30. What time should I book the connecting flight from USM to BKK at?

How long before departure must you be for Thai domestic flights? (Bangkok Air)

How far is it (time/distance) from Maenam pier to USM airport?

Many thanks,

Ray

You need to be at the airport at least 40 minutes before departure. It is only around 15km from Maenam to the airport, but allow 30 minutes, I'd be looking at the 13.50 flight and book soon.

Hi

From Meanam to airport is not that far probably 10mins by taxi. But For safe side of thing I would gusset book the later flight. From koh Samui back to Bangkok there are 12 flights daily with Bangkok airs and 2 flights with Thai airs.

There's Bangkok airport lounge you can use their facility showers, wifi, refreshment if you get there early.

Since you plan to do a ferry+flight combo, you could book it as a package with Nok Air www.nokair.com. They will also handle the bus transfer from pier to airport. Their first departure is with the 9:30 ferry. You will arrive a bit later in Bangkok (Don Mueang airport), but the cost will also be quite a bit less than with a flight from Koh Samui airport.

I agree that going from Koh Tao to Chumphon Airport for a return flight to Bangkok would make much more sense and be a lot cheaper.
