BKK Airport Fast Track Service

Recommended Posts

I have been 4 times to Bangkok over the years and never had to wait more than 20 minutes...I guess it comes down to what time is your flight supposed to be arriving at?

 

And is it really worth the money for the sake of waiting a bit longer, when that could be spend on getting laid

Have used below for the last 4 arrivals even though flight landed 1 hour early still waiting airside to meet me.

Using their service from disembarking  the plane to our condo Bkk Suk Soi 16 takes 45 minutes as i have worked 7 days a week for 6 months no day off i reckon i deserve a treat money well spent imo.

If you only have hand luggage it can save you a little time. With check in luggage it isn't much help as the bags are the hold up then. I've talked very nicely to check in staff before and had my bags tagged as priority even though I've flown economy when I've been really stuck for time. The prices for transport from the airport look quite expensive.

I used http://www.bangkokflightservices.com/index.php in the past and I was always content with what I got.

 

Imho it's worth it, but it depends on 2 things:

 

- at what time will your flight arrive and how many people are already waiting in front of the immigration desks

- will your luggage get a priority tag

 

You can't control the first thing, but if you're not flying first or business class and you don't have an elite member tier of the frequent flyer programm from the airline you are flying, there's a high chance that you might pass immigration very fast with afast track service, but in the end you have to wait for your luggage and then it'S wasted money. 

Please keep in mind that everything I write is based on my own experiences, my personal preferences and my expectations. YMMV!

I have used http://www.bangkokflightservices.com/PremiumAirportServices.php for the last few trips I have made both for arrival and departure, started after having to wait at immigration for over 40minutes never had a problem with them and I think the service is worthwhile for the convenience and ensuring the trip is hassle free, most of the time I don't think it will be a lot quicker though.  Had a problem with the taxi I booked from another company and they sorted that for me as well.  I will be using them for my trip in November again.

 

Is it worth it?, its a luxury and is any luxury item really worth it (A skoda will get you to the same location as a BMW but I bet you would enjoy the trip in the BMW more)  If you can afford it with out cutting back elsewhere and want to ensure a smooth arrival, I would go for it

I think it would be useful for swampy but not Don Muang.

 

A friend of mine has just returned from a flight that was out of Don Muang and immigration was a breeze there and the only time saving part would be the trip to Patts I believe.

 

Swampy is a different matter as I think the golf cart and VIP service would save time at immigration as I always seem to land there at peak times and the ques  are long.  

 

If you only take hand luggage then I would definitely use the service.

This trip i have limited time and last trip i spent about 2 hours in the customs waiting so i didn't want to risk it.

Surely a big exaggeration here...

There is just not enough place for a 2 hours long waiting queue in the Immigration area :wink:

The worse I saw was about 20 minutes long. No luck with 2 planes arriving 5-10 minutes before mine.

Made me arrive in the hall at the same time as my registered baggage on the belt. Usually I have to wait for it :)

Yes probably not two hours but when you arrive in Phuket everything happens in minutes... I suppose i am used to that

I flew sometimes to bkk using etihad or airberlin business class. Fastlane and limo service is included. The fast lane is really one of the fastest I have ever seen. Immigration is very quick and also passport control before checkin is very quick!

I really could have used this service in March as I had to wait about 45 minutes after arriving on an Eithad flight about 7am in the morning, so will probably give it a go this time around in Oct

Last time i landed at BKK from KL i had to wait 1hr 10 mins just to get through immigration... I only had hand luggage aswell.

 

Can you just get the fast track immigration service without the limo service as my GF picks me up.

 

I don't fancy another hour plus wait at passport control that's for sure...

True its about how many disembark at the same time but many times now it can take 1 hour to get through immigration.

 

And is it really worth the money for the sake of waiting a bit longer, when that could be spend on getting laid

That's the mind set I get in particularly when the fast track guy with his "escort" are stood at the carousel waiting and my case comes out earlier.

Yes exactly as above.

You have been lucky, worst so far 95 minutes from wheels down to meeting my taxi, they were even phoning me to check I had arrived.

This is really good information.  Went to the website http://www.bangkokfl...s.com/index.php as recommended and checked it out.  Sound like a no brainer.  Very Useful, and really not that expensive.  I mean really.  After that long of a flight, if they save 5 minutes in getting out of the airport it would be worth it!  Just saying.

Thanks, Richard

If you are landing after 8pm with only carry on bags I would say it is not worth it. My 3 trips through swampy my only limitation on how quickly I made it out of the airport was de-planing and how fast my legs could get me from the gate to the exit.

I usually fly Business Class with Qatar Airways. (DOH-BKK) Fast track lane through immigration included. 5 min after leaving the plane I'm sitting in my taxi. :D

agree with all comments here re: the key issue is waiting for the luggage.. I've travelled with / without the fast track / premium and I find it doesn't matter whether your checked bags are tagged biz class or not... as whatever process they use to unload bags they probably cant understand or read the tags!!!

My experience is different, my luggage with a priority tag is always one of the first ones that appear on the belt.

I used BFS a few week back and I m glad I did, I went from plane to taxi in 17 mins - this includes stopping to exchange some TC and pick up my checked luggage.

 

Great service.

One of the few occasions when being blind is actually helpful :). I am typically one of the last people to be assisted off the plane but after that, they just usually take me through immigration and customs in no time in most airports. In the last couple of years, I don't think I have waited more than a few minutes at any immigration or customs queues. We just walk up to the front. This is so useful especially in the States. This is usually because the airline/airport staff member assisting me has to finish with me and go do other jobs but I am not complaining. Once in Delhi airport, the guy assisting me even went into the customs checking area and got my bag out because they were taking hellishly long to process them. My sighted colleagues have caught on to this now. They make an effort to be on the same flight as I am so that they can jump the queues with me too.

 

Anyway, I don't know if I will get any special treatment at BKK. I did see a fast track service without the limo transfer on Hilton Bangkok website. It was costing around 1400 BHT if I remember correctly.

Need for fast track also varies depending on high season vrs low season.

 

Also, if you find the immigration line really long, remember there are two immigration portals for arriving passengers. The other area will typically be much less crowded as everyone stops at the first one they come too. An extra 5 minute walk can save you a 30 minute wait in line.

I used the fast track for my first time and I'm glad I did. Nothing beats having a young thai girl greeting you and carrying your bags plus the long wait for the your bags can be fun chatting her up if only there was a service they could suck your cock while waiting for the suitcase.

On my previous trips have landed early evening and usually get through immigration quickly.my next trip in september due to land 0815 is this a busy time, would it be wise to book fast track service.
