UTH Airport Overview

udon thani airport guideTo help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Udon Thani Airport.

What to Expect

Udon Thani Airport (code: UTH) has a small terminal that handles several domestic routes. Facilities include a few eateries and shops.

Where to Sleep

Based on a traveller review, it seems this airport closes nightly, so overnight stays are not possible. Have a backup plan if you’re camping out. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service. See our Airport Hotels section below for locations or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.

Covid-19 Update

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours.  Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. We will start updating all of our guides in October 2021.  To help us with this massive update, you can add or update information or write a review and submit photos and airport tips.
