Loei Airport is approximately 8 kilometers away from the city center and driving between the two points could go about 15 minutes.
Passengers have three options in traveling from the airport to the city center - by taxi, by tuk-tuk, or by a private car transfer.
Taxi cabs are located just outside the airport. Be prepared to negotiate as some taxi drivers offer fixed price to the city center but metered taxis are still available within the area.
Tuk-tuk is a three-wheeled vehicle and is one of Thailand’s primary transport modes. It is usually a shared ride but it can also be tapped for private use. Tuk-tuks can be found along the road just as you exit the airport’s premises.
Car rental companies have installed their own booths in the arrival area of the airport, where you could book your transfer service to your desired destination in Loei. Among car rental operators are Avis, Mueang Loei Car Rent, while Thai AirAsia also offers city transfer services.
Because of its small size, Loei Airport only features few facilities, such as a baggage claim area, self check-in facilities for Thai AirAsia passengers, waiting area, sales and ticketing offices, car-rental booths and an ATM.
Meanwhile, no dining areas are located inside the airport but there are snack bars can be found on the isle of the building as well as at the car park selling food and beverages.
