Thailand’s Suvarnabhumi Airport has officially launched its Airport Link and check-in service from downtown Makkasan station.
Permanent Secretary for Transport Supoj Saplom said that while the service is now fully operational, passenger fares will be raised and only three airlines are currently using the train check-in services.
Airlines wishing to join THAI Airlines, Bangkok Airways and Lufthansa, in operating a check-in service on the train, can contact the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) to apply, according to Mr Saplom.
The Airport rail link has been trialling since August of last year with discounted fares for travellers, although check-in downtown has only become available in the New Year.
Two lines operate on the new Airport Link, a City Line (30 mins one-way) and an Express Line (15 mins one-way).
