Hat Yai International Airport - The Unofficial Airports Guide

Departing from Hat Yai Airport

Hat Yai airport is quite small, so departures are relatively easy.

  • ALL of your bags must be scanned for you to enter the terminal building.
  • Check-in counters are all on your right as you enter the terminal, within a glass-enclosed area. Note that check-in counters here generally only open two hours before your flight.
  • Once you've checked in, go up the escalators to reach the departure lounge. There is a 'identity check' before you go through the final security scan to reach the departure lounge. You'll need your boarding pass and passport to get through this check-point.

The departure lounge has a few shops and snack bars.
