U-Tapao International Airport is situated midway between Pattaya and Rayong (about 40km from each city). It is about 150km away from Suvarnabhumi International Airport, and 190km from Don Mueang International Airport. Technically, it is not in Bangkok, so why it it named as Bangkok’s 3rd commercial airport?
I hope that it won’t affect AirAsia flights to Malaysia? Please stay put at Don Mueang.
