Bangkok, 10 April, 2017 – Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI) recently signed a Code-Share Agreement with Bangkok Airways Public Company Limited to boost sales and improve passenger convenience in flight connections between the two carriers.
The code-share agreement is for the roundtrip international flight on the route Bangkok-Singapore offered by THAI with other routes being considered. For Bangkok Airways, 10 domestic routes will be improved by the code-sharing agreement: Bangkok-Samui; Bangkok – Chiang Mai; Bangkok – Chiang Rai; Bangkok – Phuket; Bangkok – Krabi; Bangkok – Lampang; Bangkok – Sukhothai; Bangkok – Trat; Chiang – Mai-Mae Hong Son; and Samui – Phuket.
Four international roundtrip Bangkok Airways routes will also benefit: Bangkok – Danang (Vietnam), Bangkok – Luang Prabang (Laos), Bangkok – Maldives (Malé), and Bangkok – Siem Reap (Cambodia).
This is not the first time that THAI and Bangkok Airways have entered into an interline agreement. In 2003 the airlines signed a deal that allowed passengers to purchase air tickets and conveniently travel on connecting flights between THAI and Bangkok Airways, which helped boost commercial sales for both airlines. The new agreement is especially convenient for passengers traveling inbound from destinations across the world who can then easily be taken to final destinations served by Bangkok Airlines in the region.
In addition, the new code share, sighed on 10 April 2017 will help to better facilitate expansion in the area of commercial sales and increase passenger convenience on more flights that connect between the two air carriers. This also helps strengthen the Thai airline industry, supports the Thai economy, increases tourist arrivals into the country, and helps consolidate Thailand’s status as the aviation hub of ASEAN.
THAI is a leading international airline with routes to 61 destinations across the world while Bangkok Airways’ current network covers more than 12 domestic and 16 international destinations with strong connections to ASEAN countries
