Quoting Levent (Reply 3): Yes and no, actually. You still have to pay an airport tax - it is 700 baht now - but it is now included in the air fare. I assume this was what you meant - whether you still had to pay it in cash.

They were making the transition when I was there in March, didn't get departure tax on the local flights, but just the international one. Remember 700 baht when compared to the euro is basically nothing.

When I was in BKK last December they were still collecting the international departure tax separately but they were due to start including it with all the taxes/fees collected a the time of ticketing. I believe that change was due to be implemented a month or two later. Perhaps it was delayed.

The THB700 charge (up from 500) is now incorporated in the ticket price, so you won't need to pay cash, unless your ticket was purchased before the new rule came into effect at the end of February. If that is the case, the check-in agent will either take the cash, or send you off to the booth to pay it.
