Airports in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai International Airport (CNX)


The airport is situated two miles (4km) from Chiang Mai.

Getting to the city

The airport does not allow public tricycle and pick-up cars to enter the airport area; those can be accessed outside the airport area. These are the cheapest transport option from the airport, but can be uncomfortably crowded with luggage. Many hotels will arrange transport for guests with advance booking and there is a taxi rental counter on the first floor of the terminal.
