For all travellers departing on THAI flights across the network during the peak December/January holiday travel season, please note the following :

1.  Airports will be busy with additional passenger flows so please allow extra travel time to Airports on departure day.  Check-in opens 3 hours prior to the scheduled flight departure.

2.  For customers travelling with children, please allow plenty of time for check-in, Immigration and Security screening especially when travelling with infants.

3.  We recommend using the online check-in facility available from 24 hours prior to the flight departure time as this will expedite Airport processing.  Please note you will still need to allow adequate time for Luggage check-in, Immigration and Security screening.

4.  Please be aware of the maximum permitted luggage allowance for both hand carried luggage and checked luggage.  Excess luggage will be charged over and above the permitted allowances.  Please visit thairways.com for details, ask your travel agent or call 1300 651 960.
