Why Fly Thai Airways

Ways To Check-in

Thai Airways travellers can check in at the airport, online or through the official app.

Check-in desks open three hours before departure at airports in Australia, but are open from 4.30am every day at Suvarnabhumi Airport. Thai Airways has self check-in kiosks at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi, London Heathrow, Copenhagen, Frankfurt and Tokyo Narita that you can use 12 hours before a flight.

Online check-in facilities are available 24 hours prior to your scheduled departure time.

Baggage Allowances And Fees

Thai Airways allows all economy class passengers to check in a combined weight up to 30kg. This goes up to 40kg for Royal Silk Class passengers.

For flights to Canada and the United States, this allowance changes to a maximum of two checked bags with an individual weight of no more than 23kg.

Thai Airways passengers are also allowed one item of carry-on luggage weighing no more than 7kg, plus a small handheld item such as a handbag or laptop bag.


While it's not possible to pick your seat on domestic journeys with Thai Airways, it is possible to select your seat for no charge on international flights. This can be done up to 48 hours before departure online, or at the airport if you're checking in in person.
