Compare cheap flights to Thailand with Easyvoyage and find the best flight deals for you. The price of airline tickets varies according to the season. The cheapest flights are those departing between April and October since this is when the weather in Thailand experiences the most rain. It is worth knowing that the north of the country is the most affected by floods. Nevertheless, the temperatures are warm throughout the year, ranging between 25°C and 40°C. If you are looking for the flight deals to Thailand it is also advisable to avoid the holiday periods which often attract large crowds of tourists and cause flight prices to Bangkok to rise from £450 to over £1000. On the other hand, while flights from the UK to Bangkok can be relatively inexpensive, this is less the case for flights destined for Phuket or Koh Samui, a beautiful island off the Thai coast. Therefore, if you are set on exploring these two destinations it is advisable to fly during the low season in April and May in order to make the most of discount flight deals and flights are often half the price. Thanks to the growing success of Thailand as a holiday destination nowadays there are more and more airline companies advertising flights to Thailand to choose from. Oman Air is one such airline company offering Bangkok flights with a stopover in Muscat, as is Gulf Air with its stopover in Bahrain.
