CODESHARE arrangements between SilkAir and Bangkok Airways on selected flights between Singapore, Koh Samui, Phuket and Chiang Mai will come online tomorrow, allowing travellers greater ease in multi-destination travels within the country.
The arrangements will impact eight daily flights to Phuket, four-weekly to Chiang Mai and five-weekly to Koh Samui out of Singapore by SilkAir, as well as daily flights on the Singapore-Koh Samui, Koh Samui-Phuket and Chiang Mai-Koh Samui routes by Bangkok Airways.
Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, Bangkok Airways’ president, said: “The arrangement allows passengers of both airlines to benefit from greater connectivity and flexibility when making their travel plans. From a business perspective, the agreement enables both (airlines) to expand their respective networks and grow both inbound and outbound passenger flows.”
SilkAir’s chief executive, Marvin Tan, said: “Travellers can, for example, choose to fly into Chiang Mai for a trekking adventure through its hills, followed by a weekend of pure relaxation on the beaches of Koh Samui.”
