BFS met me 10days ago, good service but a tad expensive IMO, they don't walk you through immigration they show you to it and they then go around it but send you through it and meet you again in baggage hall. There will be little to no queue at all in the priority lanes. I waited about 20 seconds!

Probably worth the cost since I've had an hour wait thru immigration one time.

Fast Track at Bangkok Airport

Post by Dannie Boy » Mon Jul 16, 2018 11:25 am

I came across this article earlier so thought I would post it, but what made me smile was the following comment hidden in between the article -

The reason why it failed is pretty easy to identify. Thai authorities are always big in announcing all sorts of measures and the funding for such usually disappears in private pockets short after.”

The other thing to smile at is the article's disbelief that this will ever come to pass. Another stupid idea that will never see the light of day. Business and first class passengers joining the hoi polloi queues. Dream on.

As business or first class pax you get a "Premium Lane" Voucher for the fast lane area. This is between the 2 immigation zone.

That's not APPS. The author did a piss-poor job in distinguishing between the two.

Yes I understand Fast Track is not APPS. I thought the article to mean APPS is unlikely to be introduced because it would mean the cancellation of Fast Track schemes, which would lose the airport revenue.

I see. Given the site caters to frequent flyers, I thought his connecting APPS to Premium Lane was unsubstantiated click bait.

Ah. Yes probably correct.
