Bangkok Airways Reviews
The regional airline of Thailand was originally known as Sahakol Air in 1968. They started as an air-taxi service under contract from Overseas International Construction Company (OICC). As years went by, the airline had been the very first privately-owned domestic airline which was rebranded in 1986 to “Bangkok Airways.” The president of Thailand’s largest healthcare group (Bangkok Dusit Medical Services) is a 82-year-old Thai who also serves as the CEO of Bangkok Airways: Prasert Prasarttong-Osoth, a Thai billionaire businessman who has an extensive background in business management.
Bangkok Airways has 33 Airbus and ATR fleet that operate 27 international routes from Suvarnabhumi Airport. The most recent award the airline had received was for being the “World’s 3rd place in Best Regional Airline and Asia’s 2nd place in Best Regional Airline.”
Flying with Bangkok Airways
Now, Bangkok Airways has three cabin classes: Economy Class, Blue Ribbon Club, and Premier Class.
Blue Ribbon is actually their Business Class and is one of the most-booked services by passengers. Customers flying under this class are entitled to 10 kg baggage allowance and an access to the Blue Ribbon passenger lounge. Thai, Asian, and Western meals are served with a choice of wine or champagne.
Bangkok Airways just recently offered a new cabin service called “Premier Class,” with a seat configuration of 3-3 leaving the middle seat empty. Passengers will enjoy meals from their inflight menu. One good thing about this new service is travellers are given up to 30 kg baggage allowance.
The Website and Mobile app
For some reason, we are quite confused as to why the web page looks pale. Maybe, so this will not harm our eyes? It looks like the whole site is in a grayscale theme. On a positive note, despite the appearance of the page, the website’s language is interchangeable from Thailand to English.
Features include the option to search and book flights online. Additionally, there are options for hotel accommodations and car rental services. Customers under the FlyerBonus program can access their account online through the main page.
But, as we go further, we found out that the reason why the site is in a sad color is in remembrance of their King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
Moving forward, Bangkok Airways has a mobile version of all their PC services. Their travel app is available for both Android and iOS users. Customers can also manage their flights and check their status through this mobile application.

Yes, Bangkok Airways is on the top 100, reigning on the 20th spot. The airline has an obvious reason why they are considered one of the best: from booking to boarding, passengers were really happy with their overall experience with Bangkok Airways. They might not be the flag carrier of Thailand, but at least the national and regional airlines are both part of the top list. This means a lot of recognition for the country of origin.
