With eyes set on expanding its network and enhancing regional connectivity in Tier-2 cities of India, Thai Vietjet, a Thai registered low-cost airline, announced its new international services from Ahmedabad to Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi), starting on 21 October.
The new international service from Ahmedabad to Bangkok will operate three flights a week, with an approximate flight duration of 3 hours 55 minutes on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. And fly from Bangkok to Ahmedabad on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Currently, Thai Vietjet is operating double daily flight services from Bangkok to Phnom Penh and Singapore, while operating the direct flight from Bangkok to Fukuoka with the frequency of four flights per week and to be increased to five flights per week in October. The airline also operates the direct flight from Bangkok to Taipei (Taoyuan) with a frequency of one flight a week every Thursday, and to be increased to two flights per week in October.
“Since tourism is on its track to returning to the pre-pandemic level, we strongly believe that the service between the two destinations would help facilitate the region’s growing travel demand and stimulate the trade recovery of both countries, particularly, the international tourism industry and aviation business,” said Woranate Laprabang, Chief Executive Officer of Thai Vietjet.
To celebrate the launch of the new international service, the airline has launched a special promotion – Let’s go to Bangkok – Shock Sale! – offering special fares starting from INR 0 (exclusive of taxes, fees, and surcharges) for traveling on Thai Vietjet’s new international service Ahmedabad – Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi). The special promotion is available for booking until September 30, 2022, with a travel period from October 21, 2022 – March 25, 2023, at th.vietjetair.com (terms and conditions applied).
“Thailand has always been a destination for last-minute travel plans because of its proximity and ease of travel. Direct flights from Ahmedabad to Bangkok only make it even more convenient for travelers from Gujarat specifically. With the takeoff of this route, I am very hopeful to see the arrival numbers into Thailand increasing at a steady pace,” said Auttapon Thawesuntorn, the Deputy Director of TAT Mumbai at the launch event.
Thai Vietjet, in cooperation with Vietjet Group, has retained stable flight services between Thailand and Vietnam (from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City) with a frequency of up to five flights daily, and since March 2022, has resumed direct service between Bangkok and Da Nang, with the frequency of two flights per day. The airline will also commence the direct service from Bangkok to Phu Quoc, starting from October 2022, with a frequency of four flights per week
