Trat Airport – Our Guide


Trat Airport is the local Airport for Koh Chang, Koh Kood and Koh Mak.

Flying out from BKK Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok Airways is the only airline which services this route.

About Trat Airport

Located in the back and beyond of rural Trat, Trat Airport is around 20km from the two ferry piers for Koh Chang at Ao Thammachat (fast) and Centerpoint (slower). It’s 25km to Laem Ngop Pier for Kok Mak and in the opposite direction, nearer 50km to Laem Sok Pier for Koh Kood.

Trat Airport is designated CIQ (Customs Immigration and Quarantine). This means that, on selected airlines, you can check your baggage all the way through and complete your Immigration there. This considerably speeds up through-connections from Bangkok.

Despite its tiny size, the airport does have a small cafe, restaurant and an ATM.
