Trang Airport

Trang Airport

Trang Airport (TST) is a small domestic airport in Khok Lo, Trang, serving the southern province of Trang on the coast of the Strait of Malacca.

It is 8km from the center of Trang town. The journey by car takes about 15 minutes.

Upon arrival, tourists are directed to a booth where they are sorted according tho their onward destinations and transport they want to use (bus, taxi, minivan). There's a small cafe but no wifi.

All this is soon to improve when the renovation of the passenger terminal is completed when it should be able to handle 600 passengers per hour, doubling the current capacity.

The renovations were started due to booming passenger numbers from around 140,000 in 2009 to 800,000 in 2019. During the tourist high season the current space was proving to be too small for the peak usage.

The runway is being extended to be able to handle larger planes, paving the way for international flights. Plans for a second passenger terminal have also been approved and are due for completion in 2022. This will allow for the airport's capacity to increase to 3.4 million passengers a year, that's 1,200 passengers per hour.

There are currently 7 flights from Trang each day all to Bangkok Don Muang Airport, operated by Nok Air, Thai AirAsia and Thai Lion Air.
