Thai Lion adds options for Bangkok to Hanoi flights
Thai Lion Air has announced it will start flying the popular Bangkok to Hanoi route later this week. The new service will launch on Friday with two round trip flights between the two Southeast Asian capital cities.
Thai Lion will operate two flights a day on Fridays, Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays. These will depart from Bangkok Don Mueang Airport at 10:00 and 17:35. The return flights will leave Hanoi at 12:45 and 20:20. The flights on the first day, Friday, will depart at slightly different times.
The new Thai Lion Air service will increase options for passengers on one of the busiest routes in the region. Low cost carriers such as Thai AirAsia and Nok Air fly from Don Mueang to Hanoi while Thai Airways and Vietnam Airlines fly from Bangkok’s main airport, Suvarnabhumi.
One advantage of choosing Thai Lion Air over other budget carriers is that there are no extra charges for up to 20 kilogrammes of checked luggage or seat selections. 12GO ASIA is an online portal providing advanced travel reservations services on routes connecting all the key destinations in Southeast Asia.
