Posted 1 December 2016 · Add Comment

Dubai-based Flydubai has officially launched its Bangkok service, marking the start of its first double daily route outside of the GCC.


Bangkok offers holidaymakers a variety of experiences from adventure, sport, and health and wellness retreats. In addition, flights to Bangkok will provide passengers with alternative travel options into neighbouring South East Asian cities.
Commenting on the launch of the new route, Ghaith Al Ghaith, Flydubai CEO, said: “The inaugural flight to Bangkok is a significant milestone for our airline and represents the increasing maturity of Flydubai’s network. We look forward to offering business and leisure travellers from both Dubai and Bangkok increased choice and flexibility across our network.”
Speaking at a press conference held with the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), Sudhir Sreedharan, senior vice president, commercial (GCC, Subcontinent and Africa) for Flydubai, said: “Bangkok is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world, offering a wide range of attractions and activities. With the addition of this important city to flydubai’s growing network we will not only offer passengers from Dubai alternative travel options through Thailand, but additionally connect Thailand to Russia and Europe via Dubai, strengthening the UAE’s position as an international travel hub.”
Tanes Petsuwan, the TAT Deputy Governor for International Marketing (Europe, Africa, Middle East and Americas) said “The start of these flights brings fresh promise to our business and trade ties, our respective roles as regional trade fair capitals, and to our cultural and tourism development.”
