THAI Smile announces China, Laos, Japan routes

THAI Airways International’s board of directors has approved a slew of new flights for subsidiary LCC THAI Smile, with services to begin from October 27.

THAI Smile will commence thrice-weekly Bangkok-Chongqing and Bangkok-Changsha services on October 27, with the frequency of the latter to go up to five times weekly on January 16, 2014. Flights are to be operated with Airbus A320-200 aircraft.

The carrier will also connect Bangkok to Luang Prabang in Laos from November 16 through seven-weekly flights on A320-200 aircraft.

Lastly, THAI Smile will fly a new Bangkok-Sendai route three times a week from December 3, deploying an A330-300 on the Japan service.

THAI Smile averaged 77 per cent in load factor in August 2013, a decrease from 82.5 per cent recorded during the same month last year, due to the increase in domestic and international destinations it serves.
