Heading back to Suvarnabhumi Airport for my flight back to Singapore, I headed for the Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link City Line again to maximise my time in Bangkok as it is the fastest way to get from the city back to Suvarnabhumi Airport. Also, as I had already purchased my Klook Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link (ARL) Ticket earlier on during the trip, this was to be an even cheaper option to get back to the airport.
I got to Phaya Thai station via the BTS Skytrain from my hotel. Here, new lifts have been installed for easy access by passengers who have luggage.
Wide gates are also available at Phaya Thai BTS Station for easy access by passengers who have luggage.
Phaya Thai BTS Station is connected to Phaya Thai ARL Station by a convenient linkbridge.
Heading straight to the ticket gates as I already have my Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link (ARL) Ticket with me.

Heading up to the platform.
Unfortunately, as I had just missed an earlier train, it was a 12-minute wait for the next train for me. However, power sockets are available at the platform for me to charge up my phone, and new fans along the platform made the waiting a little bit more bearable.

Crossing over the track to my platform.
The Airport Rail Link City Line train approaching the station. Boarding is only allowed after all passengers have disembarked from the train and the driver has changed to the other cab.
I quickly found a seat in the Airport Rail Link City Line train for the 26-minute ride to Suvarnabhumi Airport. If I wasn’t fast enough, I would have to most likely stand for the entire journey as the demand for this train is rather high at all times of the day.
Splitting off the straight alignment into Suvarnabhumi Airport, while the SRT Eastern Line continues on to Pattaya, Ban Phlu Ta Luang, Aranyaprathet and in future, onwards to Poipet, Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville in Cambodia too.
Hmm, maybe I’ll try this out later?
Heading down to the terminal’s basement.
Disembarking from the Airport Rail Link City Line. The journey itself took 26 minutes as scheduled, but including my unfortunate 12-minute wait as I had just missed an earlier train, the total time I took from Phaya Thai to Suvarnabhumi Airport is 38 minutes. Still faster than getting there by road though.
The exit fare gates at Suvarnabhumi Airport has no manual gates. As such, I needed to head to the entry gates instead to exit with my Klook Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link (ARL) Ticket.
The manual gate is located just beside the passenger service centre where the entrance gates are. Hand over the paper Klook Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link (ARL) Ticket to the staff to exit.
Heading out of the station to the airport terminal.
From here, I got the lift up to the departures level to check-in for my flight back to Singapore.
Overall, it was another cheap and efficient ride from the city to Suvarnabhumi Airport with the Airport Rail Link City Line, the small discount off Klook was quite worth it, and is definitely my top choice to get to Suvarnabhumi Airport from Bangkok city as I will get there at a fixed timing without any worries of traffic jams to catch my flight.
