LCC VietJet is for the first time serving Thailand domestically with the launch of three new internal routes there.
New daily Bangkok-Phuket and thrice-weekly Phuket-Chiang Rai services will begin running from September 15, while daily Bangkok-Chiang Mai flights will operate starting September 26.
VietJet will also launch an international route from Haiphong to Bangkok starting November 9, with flights taking place on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
The airline currently operates services from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.
Thailand’s tourism and sports minister Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul said VietJet’s added capacity to the budget flight sector in Thailand provides travellers with more low-cost options and an enhanced domestic flight network.
