Nov 30, 2016: Dubai-based flydubai has officially launched its Bangkok service, marking the start of its first double daily route outside of the GCC.
The inaugural flight from Dubai International Terminal 2 landed at Bangkok International Airport, providing connecting routes for travel through Dubai. As a popular tourist destination, Bangkok offers holidaymakers a variety of experiences from adventure, sport, and health and wellness retreats. In addition, flights to Bangkok will provide passengers with alternative travel options into neighbouring South East Asian cities.
Ghaith Al Ghaith, chief executive officer at flydubai, said, “We look forward to offering business and leisure travellers from both Dubai and Bangkok increased choice and flexibility across our network.”
Speaking at a press conference held with the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), Sudhir Sreedharan, senior vice president, Commercial (GCC, Subcontinent and Africa) for flydubai, said, “Bangkok is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world, offering a wide range of attractions and activities. With the addition of this important city to flydubai’s growing network we will not only offer passengers from Dubai alternative travel options through Thailand, but additionally connect Thailand to Russia and Europe via Dubai, strengthening the UAE’s position as an international travel hub.”
Thailand is the latest addition to flydubai’s network of more than 90 destinations, offering increased choice and flexibility for business and leisure passengers. By the end of the second half of the year, the airline will have added eight new aircraft to its fleet. flydubai has recently launched its rewards programme, OPEN, designed to make earning and spending reward points simple and straightforward.
Passengers travelling on the new Bangkok route will have the option of a Business Class experience, benefitting from a dedicated 24-hour Business Team to assist with bookings and enquiries throughout the journey, as well as priority check-in service, comfortable spacious seats and a range of in-flight entertainment and dining options. WiFi services are available on half of the flydubai fleet.
