Further pioneering regional connectivity, Thai Vietjet, a Thai-registered low-cost airline, announces its new international services from Ahmedabad to Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi), starting from October 21, 2022.
“We are delighted to connect Thailand with one of the largest cities of India – Ahmedabad, India’s first World Heritage City, providing Thai people more opportunities and flexible choices to travel to India, as well as welcoming Indian tourists to Thailand. 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.
At the start, the new international service from Ahmedabad to Bangkok will operate three flights a week, with an approximate flight duration of 3 hours 55 minutes, with the following flight schedule:
|Flight Number||Origin||Destination||Departure||Arrival||Days of Operation|
To celebrate the launch of the new international service, the airline is also launching 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).
Khun Auttapon Thawesuntorn, the Deputy Director of TAT Mumbai added, I am pleased to announce the new international services introduced by ThaiVietJet. 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 space.
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 4 flights per week and to be increased to 5 flights per week in October.
