Nearly all international flights arrive at the cosmopolitan city of Bangkok – the gateway to the wonders of Thailand. Fortunately it also happens to be one of the cheapest cities in the world to fly out of, which means it is possible to get some great deals on flights. Thailand’s national carrier is Thai Airways International, and along with British Airways and Qantas it is one of the main airlines offering direct flights to Bangkok from the UK departing from London Heathrow. Cheaper flight options may be available with other airlines such as KLM and Singapore Airlines which offer stopovers. Flight time from the UK is around 11 hours.
