Useful info, stats and facts about Melbourne to Bangkok flights.

What airports serve Melbourne to Bangkok?

You can fly to Bangkok from Melbourne out of either of the city’s airports, with the majority of routes leaving from Melbourne Tullamarine Airport (MEL). Most of them make one layover in Singapore, and flight times can vary from around 13h to just over 23h, depending on how long the layover takes. You can also depart from Avalon Airport (AVV), which operates two-stop routes to Bangkok. These flights don’t add a significant amount of time compared to one-stop flights out of Tullamarine Airport, and there also isn’t much of a cost difference, so you can quite happily fly out from there. Arriving in Bangkok, you’ll land at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK), which is one of the largest in Southeast Asia. It’s about 30 km from the city centre, and you can catch an Airport Rail Link train to get there.

Which airlines fly directly from Melbourne to Bangkok?

Unfortunately, direct flights from Melbourne to Bangkok aren’t currently available at either Melbourne Tullamarine Airport or Avalon Airport. From the former, you can fly a one-stop route that will change at Singapore Changi Airport (SIN) or a two-stop route that first lands in Sydney before heading on to Singapore as well. There is also the odd three-stop route that goes via the Gold Coast before flying on to Sydney and Singapore. The layovers in Sydney can last from around 6h up to around 20h or longer before you leave Australian shores, headed for Singapore and then your final destination airport in Bangkok.

What are the layover options between Melbourne to Bangkok?

The cheaper flight routes to Bangkok from Melbourne out of Avalon Airport are operated by Jetstar. This route first flies to Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport, where you’ll change planes to Singapore Airlines for the next leg to Singapore Changi Airport. From there, you’ll fly to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport. If you’re flying from Melbourne Tullamarine Airport, one of the cheaper airline routes is the one-stop flight on Scoot, to Singapore Changi and on to Bangkok. You can also choose Singapore Airlines to fly on the same route. Otherwise, you can also fly a two-stop route from Tullamarine Airport, once again using Jetstar and Singapore Airlines, with your first layover at Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport. Qantas also offers flights via Brisbane Airport (BNE) to switch to Singapore Airlines.
