The airport of Udon Thani UTH

Udon Thani has a modern airport (UTH), which is about 7 km from the city centre.

Udon Thani Airport Passenger Terminal


For those coming from distant destinations, flying is the fastest, easiest and most comfortable option. Currently there are direct flights to Bangkok, Phuket, Hat Yai, U Tapao Pattaya and Chiang Mai. Minibuses are available at the airport taking passengers to the city at a reasonable price.



Alternatively you can take the Songtheaw no. 5 to Nong Prajak, or take a meter taxi or samlor. The airport is about 1 hour away by car from the border crossing to Laos and is therefore used by many passengers as a stopover before going on to Laos. Several companies offer a minibus transfer to the Laotian border in Nongkai, or even to Vientiane in Laos at a cheap rate.
