How much is a ticket to Thailand - my observations

One of the most frequently asked questionsmy readers and friends in general - how much does a ticket to Thailand cost and when is it best to buy it. And in fact, the answer is already partly contained in the question - it all depends on the time of purchase. But nevertheless I will try to orient you at the prices, the blessing I repeatedly look through the air tickets for myself and my friends. Naturally, we are talking about air tickets, as overland to get to Thailand is very problematic.

The situation, of course, is constantly changing, so prices are different. More information about how how to fly cheap to Thailandbased on experience, you can read in my article on the link.

Current prices

Since we ourselves fly in economy class from Moscow,then I will talk about the prices of budget flights from the capital. In addition, I doubt that those who fly business class, ask a similar question, and in any case there is a completely different order of prices. It also makes sense to separate the prices of tickets for regular flights and charter.

Flights we are always looking for through Aviasales.ru and Skyscanner.ru. Two of these search engines is enough. There are others, but I personally do not see the need for them.

Separately, I also want to mention that if you startedto monitor tickets, it makes sense to subscribe to the direction you need and then you will periodically fall sentences on the mail. It is very convenient! Enough, a couple of weeks to pomonitorit and see what the price will be, and then buy. At any time, you can unsubscribe or change the direction of flight.

Ticket price for regular flights

So, how much does a regular ticket to Thailand costflight? The problem is that the dollar is constantly becoming more expensive, some airlines stop flying from Moscow, Transaero was removed, so the prices have become, to put it mildly, not so much. We must in fact look, everything changes too quickly.

One-way ticket will cost from 12,000 rubles.in the direction of Moscow-Bangkok in the best case, but in reality, the price will often occur 15000-20000 rubles. The price of a round-trip ticket starts from 20,000 thousand rubles (for example, in summer or early autumn), and more often you will see 25,000-35,000 rubles. The flight will be 99% with a transfer. For direct flights, the price can be even higher.

Around the New Year and in January, prices usually rise. In these months, as a rule, everything is more expensive, because of the large flow of tourists. From here we can draw the following conclusions:

  • Prices are not on holidays below.
  • Round-trip tickets are usually cheaper than one way.
  • If you are looking for tickets in advance and met the price of tickets round trip to around 20,000 rubles, you can safely book them without waiting for a further fall.

Moscow is the most popular city of departures. But I also noticed that it is cheap to fly from Novosibirsk / Krasnoyarsk / Irkutsk. Although I do not like the airline S7, but it has cheap flights, including from Moscow, just in with a transfer in Novosibirsk or Krasnoyarsk. Well, and own, that who lives in these cities, there is no choice, not to fly to Moscow.

Last Minute Charter Tickets

So, how much does a ticket to Thailand for a charter flight cost? In this case, I would consider the last minute tickets, because the usual charter, and not so many tickets, and it costs more than regular season.

Usually the price of a one way ticketis 300-400 $ and 600-800 $ in both, in the direction of Moscow-Bangkok. As I said above, this is convenient in that there will be no transplant and the entire flight will take only 9 hours. And also there are flights to Phuket for about the same prices as to Bangkok. In addition, there are special offers with lower prices, such as $ 150-200 one way, but they must be caught directly, they are rare and usually out of season. With such a dollar rate, prices do not seem low, but you just have to accept it. Moreover, after Transaero was removed, with burning tickets, it’s generally a disaster. We'll have to fly now incomprehensible Nord Wind and Azur Air.

P.S. What are some of the observations on prices of flights to Thailand?
