Suaratthani Air Port with a short transfer to Donsak Pier, whitch is opperated by Seatrain.

Several airlines which include Air Asia, Nok Air and Thai airways are operating from Surat thani Airport at lower prices and with Air Asia you can book your flight including the ferry ticked and shuttle transport to Donsak Pier.
