Sydney to Koh Samui with Qantas & Bangkok Airways

Hi Guys,

Can anyone answer some questions for me flying from Sydney to Koh Samui with Qantas and then Bangkok Airways via Suvarnabhumi Airport .

1) Will Qantas check my baggage all the way from Sydney to Koh Samui?

2) Will Qantas issue me my Bangkok Airways boarding pass in Sydney?

3) Will I clear customs in Suvarnabhumi Airport?

4) Please explain the process at Suvarnabhumi Airport which signs should I follow?

Thank you all for your help and assistance.

Hi Brad,

1) If you booked both sectors under the one ticket, then yes.

2) Unlikely

3) Yes

4) Answer can be found under arrival and transit formalities section.

Hi

I would suggest the answer to 2) is probably. If you have booked it as one ticket then when you check in at SYD you will be given boarding passes for both sectors - same as 1).

The answers totally depend on how you booked your flights as if it was one ticket....

I have found in the past you will have baggage checked all the way and clear customs at Samui.

Most of the times boarding passes are issued at the first check in for the whole sector but not always.

The signs at the airport are very easy to follow and the Thai are always happy to help if you are not sure.

if you booked separate tickets then I would expect ...

1) No

2) No

3) yes

4) follow.

if you explain how your ticket was booked it would be helpful.

Cheers

Thanks for all of the replies.

I haven't booked the ticket yet, but I'll be doing it on expedia so I assume that will be on one ticket.

You can book all the way through with Qantas which may prove the cheapest way.
