Qatar Airways and Tourism Authority of Thailand sign MoU

Posted 25 April 2017 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways and The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) have signed an MoU at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2017 in Dubai this week.

Under the MoU, TAT and Qatar Airways will develop joint promotions to mutually increase tourism and visibility for Thailand to travellers in more than 150 destinations the airline flies to. 

Thailand, one of Qatar Airways’ earliest destinations in the Far East, has grown from strength to strength in the last two decades. Effective 1 June, Qatar Airways will have five daily flights from Doha to Bangkok. The increased frequency, along with its double-daily Phuket flights and the five-month-old Krabi operations (4 flights a week), take the number of weekly Qatar Airways departures from Thailand to Doha to 53. Besides the existing three popular Thai destinations, Qatar Airways has also set its sights on Chiang Mai, the largest city in Northern Thailand. 

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker said: “Our increased frequency to Bangkok and the enhanced collaboration with the Tourism Authority of Thailand is testament to our commitment to the Thai market. Bangkok has long been a hugely popular destination for both business and leisure travellers. The partnership with the Tourism Authority of Thailand will enable us to jointly work together to attract more travellers from secondary cities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa to experience the warm and gracious hospitality Thailand is renowned for, and power the growth of this iconic Far East route for Qatar Airways.”
