Thai Vietjet will increase the number of flights to and from Phuket, Thailand starting this October, with a target of 204 weekly flights by the end of the year.
Woranate Laprabang, CEO of Thai Vietjet, said the decision came after a discussion with Thailand’s prime minister Srettha Thavisin and the Thai Airlines Association.
“We all agreed that tourism is one of the largest sources of sustainable income for Thailand, and it’s important that we push forward and enhance policies to stimulate the tourism industry in the long run, including the free-visa policy for tourists from potential countries such as China and India. In response to those open policies, Thai Vietjet will be increasing our flight capacity to Phuket, which is one of the most popular Thai destinations, from 126 flights weekly to 204 flights weekly, beginning October onwards, which highlights our relentless efforts to contribute to the recovery and sustainability of the travel industry, said Woranate.
The services will connect Phuket International Airport with Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and Chiang Rai in Thailand, as well as Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Thai Vietjet will announce additional Phuket services to and from different cities in China, India, South-east Asia, and Australia soon.
