How to Find Cheap Flights to Ranong

Ranong is a unique city on the western coast of Thailand. This region is a very popular destination for those in the U.S. and Western Europe, so finding flights to Ranong shouldn't be too difficult. The Skyscanner flight search tool makes it easy to find cheap fares. Our Price Alert tracker will notify you when fares are at their lowest point.

 

When to Book

High season is November to February when the weather is at its mildest. A dry season does run from November to May, so travellers may also try to book flights to Ranong during these time periods. Savvy travellers know that booking a flight at least six weeks in advance will yield the best prices. Those looking for cheap flights to Ranong could consider visiting during the summer, which is considered the rainy season.

 

Airports With Direct Flights From the U.K.

Heathrow Airport (LHR) and Gatwick Airport (LGW) typically feature flights to Thailand. Given Ranong's more remote location, though, travellers should expect their flights to have stopovers in Phuket or one of Thailand's larger cities before carrying on to Ranong. Gatwick sometimes offers cheap flights to Ranong compared to costs from Heathrow, so be sure to check both airports for fares. Most major cities in Thailand will also offer last-minute flights to Ranong for those looking for an impromptu getaway.

 

Airlines That Fly to Ranong From the U.K.

There are a number of airlines that fly from the U.K to Thailand, although travellers looking to fly to Ranong will most likely have to change from a major carrier to a smaller, regional airline in Phuket or Bangkok. Emirates, Lufthansa and Etihad are three of the biggest airlines that offer flights to Thailand. Travellers will likely connect to Nok Air, one of Thailand's national airlines, for flights to Ranong.

 

Airports

Ranong Airport (UNN), which serves the local province, is located about an hour south of the city. Though most hotels in Ranong offer their own airport transfer or shuttle service, travellers can also easily hire a taxi at the airport. Songthaews, a van-type public transportation service, are also relatively popular and can be flagged from the main road outside of the airport.

 

When to Go

Thailand has a distinctly rainy season during the summer months and a dry season during the fall and winter. Travellers looking for the best experience should try to visit during the dry season. However, they may have better luck finding last-minute flights to Ranong during the summer months.

 

What's the Weather Like?

Since Ranong enjoys a tropical climate, travellers should never need more than a light sweater at night. This warm and humid atmosphere makes Ranong a great escape from the cold winter months of Western Europe.
