Air Asia have made their service more convenient by adding a fly and ferry option that goes between Don Muang AIrport in Bangkok and Thongsala Pier in Koh Phangan. There is, however, only time slot given to this inclusive package: 0650 / 0700 from Bangkok and 1000 from Thongsala.
For those prepared to organize their own boat and bus transfers there are 3 flights a day going between Bangkok and Suratthani.
The price for a single ticket between Bangkok and Suratthani on an Air Asia flight is about 1,000 Thai Baht on a promotion or about 1,300 Thai Baht without a promotion. As with all flights nowadays there are a whole series of extra considerations. The flight tax is included in the ticket price. Cancellations are subject to a processing fee of 160 THB. The booking fee is 210 THB which can be avoided if you book through their website. Like Ryan Air all checked baggage has to be paid for. Up to 15kg costs 250 THB, 20kg costs 290 THB, 25 kgs cost 428 THB and 30kg costs 535 THB if you pre-book online. These are small charges but they can add up if you are a large family traveling with lots of luggage.
The Air Asia website is comprehensive and easy to use. It is a big company that has scheduled flights to several countries in Asia.
