Starting from the 26th of October, which was last Sunday, Bangkok Airways have launched 4 new direct routes from Chaing Mai, one of which is for Phuket. As high-season is on its way, it’s the perfect time to launch new direct flights between two of Thailand’s most popular and beautiful tourist destinations.
Bangkok Airways Vice President for Sales, Ariya Prasarttong-Osoth, believes that the new routes will help to promote Chiang Mai and other locations such as Phuket. “We considered the potential for passenger volume when the Asean Economic Community (AEC) comes into being [at the end of 2015],” she said. “All flights are direct – they do not stop in Bangkok.”
The service from Chiang Mai to Phuket flight will be daily, utilizing their Airbus A320 aircraft that has 162 seats. The Phuket to Chiang Mai flights are at 11:30am every day, and the return from Chaing Mai to Phuket departs at 2:40pm every day.
“The airline is currently offering special web promotion fares on these four new routes. Chiang Mai-Phuket, one way, starts from just B2,290,” Ms Ariya finished off.
