Cabin Classes

Pattaya Airways will be operating its flights with ATR 72 aircraft - this is a regional turboprop aircraft that is typically used for short-haul flights, therefore it may only offer an economy-class cabin configuration onboard.

Economy Class

Seats may be set out in a 2 x 2 configuration with a single aisle in between.

The ATR 72 offers a comfortable cabin environment for regional travel but isn't as spacious as larger jetliners.

In-flight Entertainment

Due to the nature of the flights that will be operated by Pattaya Airways, in-flight entertainment may not be provided or existent on the aircraft. We recommend bringing your own forms of entertainment for your flight such as a book to read or your own personal devices with TV shows/movies to watch.

Food and Drink

A complimentary snack or beverage may be provided on Pattaya Airways' flights however this is not guaranteed due to the type of flights it operates.

Airport Check-In

You can check in for your Pattaya Airways flight at the airport via the airline's check-in counters. We recommend arriving at the airport at least 2-3 hours before your flight is scheduled to depart. This is to allow enough time for you to get through baggage drop and security procedures.

Hub Airport

U-Tapao International Airport

Pattaya Airways hasn't launched yet and its hub airport hasn't been announced, however, it is likely the new airline will operate many of its flights from U-Tapao International Airport in Pattaya, Thailand.

U-Tapao International Airport, originally a military airfield, is a civilian airport that serves the Pattaya City region of Thailand, 140km southeast of Bangkok. It handles both domestic and international flights and is a hub for several low-cost carriers in the country. The airport provides connectivity to popular tourist destinations within Thailand and is a convenient point of entry for travellers heading to destinations in the east of the country.

The airport is currently a hub for Thai AirAsia and Thai Summer Airways, both of which are low-cost carriers.


For its initial launch, Pattaya Airways will dry lease 2 x ATR 72-500s. This aircraft is ideal for short-haul, regional flights and can seat up to 70 passengers.
