So what company is flying to Buriram right now? Only Nok air?

To date, only Nok Air operates out of Buriram.

I just flew from Bangkok to Roi-et on Nok Mini (May 10 2011). It was a nice flight left Bangkok Don Mueang airport at 08:00 and arrived in Roi-et at 09:15, right on schedule. The aircraft they use is a Saab 340B 34 seater, which is just about right for this segment. It was full today. The service is daily and priced at a reasonable price with taxes and everything the cheap fair is ฿1,990 and the regular fair ฿2,490. I figured the costs out and if they can keep the planes almost full they can make money at those rates, not a lot, but at least they will make money, so perhaps this daily service will last. It would be really nice if they added an early evening late afternoon flight. Oh one more thing is it ever nice flying out of Don Mueang, I would be a happy camper if I never had to use Suvarnabhumi airport again.

I see Nok have a flight schedule for Buriram up to end October, do they remain the only service to Buriram?

Oooops I have 8 people travelling, I am trying to book for November, on line, as yet no luck with either TRA or Nok....I thought Nok to Buri Ram or Roi Et would be OK at a push, but direct to Surin would be even better..will keep trying, thanks for the update. If I eventually get booked I will let you know.

I booked Nok to Buri Ram, I prefer the larger plane as this is the first flight for the children so I don't want to risk them getting thrown about in a smaller plane and be put off flying!

For information final price per person, (excluding insurance, no additional baggage over 15kgs) 1990 baht (Nok Eco)

I think I recall an additional 100 baht can be paid in advance for heavy baggage as opposed to a 50 baht/kg for excess at the desk

Insurance is 65 baht a person

There should always be a caveat as it applies to Thai airline start-ups. As many of their reputations and history preceed them - operations, service, safety issues, etc.

Shouldn't be so gung-ho to jump on the banfwagon....initial caution should be in the forefront.

I wish them all the best wishes and hopeful for future endeavours, as there has always been a need to fill in the smaller Thailand domestic market - but most failed because of their incompetent business sense and indifference to service and safety.

well once again the flight failed to materialize this time they have mentioned a problem with the landing at the airport something they have to speak to the military about, one would have thought this would have been sorted before giving leaflets out stating the flight starting date
