Chiang Rai International Airport

Mae Fah Luang–Chiang Rai International Airport (ไทย. ท่าอากาศยานแม่ฟ้าหลวง เชียงราย) (old name: Chiang Rai International Airport (Thai: ท่าอากาศยานเชียงราย)) Шаблон:Airport codes is in the city of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand.

The airport is about 10 km from city centre. Since 1998 it has been managed by the Airports of Thailand Public Company Limited (AOT).

Access to the airport is via an access road linking the airport with Phahonyothin Road (superhighway), which leads southbound to the city centre, Chiang Mai, Bus Terminal II, and to Bangkok; northbound to Mae Chan, Mae Sai, and the Thai-Myanmar border.

A new road (Vhiangburapha Road) which can be accessed by turning left upon exiting the airport also leads southbound to the city centre and is a less congested route, as it is not used by intercity buses heading north. The road joins up with Phahonyothin Road via Pao Khun Road which passes Chiang Rai Provincial Stadium.

The airport handles over 800,000 passengers, 5,800 aircraft movements, and 3,700 tons of cargo (2011).

It consists of a single passenger terminal with both the international and domestic arrivals and departures handled on the same floor but in separate areas.

The airport's IATA code is CEI. There are several flights daily to Bangkok-Suvarnabhumi(BKK), a regional hub, with daily flights to every major city in the world.

The airport has facilities capable of handling international flights, but only serves one international route, CEI - KMG (Kunming Changshui International Airport). It also handles immigration from Thai Airlines flights with international connections to/from Bangkok-Suvarnabhumi.

Very convenient as it is not far from Chiang Rai downtown, only the problem of limited parking lot.

Buy your souvenirs in the airport ! It is cheaper than any temple (especially the white temple).
