Bangkok Airways to add extra flights and destinations
Thailand based carrier Bangkok Airways has just released details of planned additions to flight frequencies, routes and destinations. A statement explains that the airline plans to launch routes from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport to Nakhon Ratchasima and Vietnam’s Phu Quoc Island.
From Chiang Mai, Bangkok Airways says it will add two new destinations. The first is Bagan in Myanmar and the second is the Laos capital of Vientiane. Aviation authorities have to give the green light before these routes are inaugurated.
The carrier will also up frequencies on the busy Suvarnabhumi to Chiang Mai route by one extra flight daily to give a total of nine flights. Services from Chiang Mai to Mae Hong Son, Koh Samui and Phuket will double to two a day while flight frequencies from Bangkok to Phuket, Vientiane and Danang in Vietnam will all increase.
Bangkok Airways has ordered three Airbus A319s and two ATR72-600s. These are due to be delivered before year’s end and will increase the fleet size to 39 aircraft. 12GO ASIA offers flight reservations services for routes throughout Southeast Asia. Bangkok Airways is one of our chosen partners.
