 CNX Chiang Mai Airport Info & Guide

Chiang Mai International Airport

Where is Chiang Mai Airport?  

Located in the Himalayan Mountains foothills, 800 year old Chiang Mai was isolated until the 1920's, allowing the city to keep its distinctive charm. Inside the remains of the city walls are 30+ ancient temples, a glorious combination of Sri Lankan, Burmese and Lanna Thai styles. The temples are decorated with intricate wood carvings, pagodas laced with gold filigree, Naga staircases, angelic and leonine guardians, and gilded umbrellas.

Chiang Mai is surrounded by mountains and lush countryside, so it is much quieter and greener than Bangkok. The city is popular with expats, so this "Rose of the North" has a cosmopolitan air.

Chiang Mai International Airport (IATA: CNX, ICAO: VTCC) serves the city of Chiang Mai, the capital city of Chiang Mai Province, in Thailand. CNX Airport is the major gateway to northern Thailand.

In 2012, Chiang Mai Airport served 4,491,331, making it the 4th busiest airport in Thailand, behind Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK)Phuket International Airport (HKT) and Don Mueang International Airport (DMK).

Airlines serving Chiang Mai Airport include Air Asia, Bangkok, China, Dragon, Korean, Orient Thai, Thai AirAsia (secondary hub), Thai, TransAsia and U Airlines, as well as Thai domestic carriers. 

Destinations served include Bagan, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Kunming, Luang Prabang, Macau, Seoul, Singapore, Taipei and Yangon, among others.

Your best bet for a Chiang Mai Airport transfer is an unofficial taxi. Details on all options are included in this guide.

Or, to truly arrive stress free, treat yourself to a private Chiang Mai Airport transfer from IHateTaxis.
