For a return flight from Singapore to Seoul, Thai Airways charges 270 SGD for the tax and surcharges! Cathay Pacific, on the other hand, charges only 170 bucks for that. Why is there such a wide gap among different airlines? Is it because Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport is new and therefore its airport tax is exorbitant?
I’m not exactly sure how international taxes and surcharges are calculated but for flights within the US, the passenger taxes and surcharges vary between airports because they are used to help fund airport improvements and airport developments. The charges tend to be more for Airlines who based at airports that are ungoing major improvements and/or development like terminal improvements, remodeling, runway, taxiway improvements, etc.
i will arrive at HK airport in terminal 1 from Japan Airline at 11pm Thursday, then fly out to bangkok from terminal 2 (Bangkok Airway) at 9am the next morning. my luiggages are not automatically routed. I would like to stay within the airport using the pay-in lounges for layover. Will i be able to stay within the airport without exit and check back in again? do i still need to go thru the passport check first? How do i transfer the luggages to Bangkok airway easily? thanks in advance for your advices!

Tribute to Bangkok Airways
An Airbus A319 of the Thai airline Bangkok Airways making a short field landing in Koh Samui Airport, Thailand. Samui Airport is a private airfield owned by Bangkok Airways and is unique in its style because there is no closed building on it. All airport infrastructure is located in open wooden huts, giving the airport its unique resort style and atmosphere. Filmed from the northern end of the runway near Buddha Beach.
