Any idea what happens after April 30th? We aren't going until October but we will be transfering between the 2 airports and I know a lot of things can change between now and then :)

I think this was only ever to be a temporary measure to assist those who were affected by the relatively late change of airport.

We're also going in October and are watching with interest the progress of repairs to the new airport.

Altough April 30th is mentioined, like many other things in LOS it may not necessarily mean this April 30th :).

Hopefully things maybe back to normal by October. :lol:, maybe.

I got a taxi from the new airport to Don Muang on Monday. It cost me 420 Baht including all toll fares and 50 Baht pick-up fee and took about 35 minutes.
