A check on its website shows that there are as four flights weekly between Kuala Lumpur and Surat Thani, which are on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesday, and Friday. For some reason the fares from Surat Thani to Kuala Lumpur are slightly more pricey.

The distance between the Surat Thani International Airport and the city center is some 27km. However, transportation services like buses, shared minivans, and private taxis will readily take you between the two places.

There is also transportation from the Surat Thani International Airport to Donsak Pier, the latter of which is a port of exit to islands like Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao.
