FAQ: Flights Lyon - Bangkok

What is the duration of a flight between Lyon and Bangkok?

About 9360 kilometres separate the cities of Lyon and Bangkok, and the average flight time amounts to approximately 11 hours and 30 minutes.

For example, you can reach Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok (BKK) from Lyon Saint-Exupéry (LYS) in 13 hours and 10 minutes, with a 1-hour and 5-minute stop-over at Munich's Franz-Josef-Strauss Airport (MUC).

When is the best time for a tourist to stay in Bangkok?

Bangkok's climate is divided into two major seasons: the dry season and the wet season.

The dry season extends from November to May. It provides the best conditions for a tourist stay, especially between November and March when temperatures are mild. This is the ideal season to enjoy Thailand's beaches and natural parks. The wet season starts in June and ends in October. While rain can be intense, it tends to be brief, allowing you to enjoy sunny days between storms.

Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, is a fascinating destination to visit all year round. The tourist season mainly spans from November to March, but other months offer lower tourist crowds and often more attractive prices.

When should you book your flight to fly to Thailand?

Flight ticket prices are often influenced by flight occupancy rates. Airlines adjust prices during ticket sales, typically offering cheaper seats when the aircraft is still relatively empty, while the last available seats are usually sold at higher prices.

If you want to save money, you can book your flight as early as possible, typically securing more advantageous fares. Maintaining flexibility with your travel dates and times is also important, as flight ticket prices can be higher on specific days of the week or during particular tourist periods. You can use our flight ticket search tool to compare prices and easily book your flight online in just a few clicks!

If you're arriving at Lyon Saint-Exupéry (LYS) with your own vehicle, choosing to reserve your parking space online is highly recommended. This option guarantees you a parking space upon your arrival, along with preferential rates and various benefits.

For stays from 30 days to 3 months, obtaining a visa is mandatory. You can contact the nearest Thai consulate for these administrative procedures.
