The numbers of international flights at all six airports went up, except Hat Yai airport.

The numbers of domestic flight surged at all six airport, except at Don Mueang, which slightly decreased because low-cost airlines reduced domestic flights and opted for international routes.

The first five highest numbers of foreign passengers travelling through the six airports were from China, South Korea, Japan, India and Malaysia.
The first five airlines, based on the number of passengers, using the six airports were AirAsia, Thai Airways, Thai Lion Air, NokAir and Bangkok Airways.
