Bangkok Airways will launch flights to Phuket (via Samui) routes to connect Thailand’s western seaside to southern seaside destinations starting from 2 December 2010 onwards. The new flights will be operating 4 flights weekly.
“We believe the connection between Thailand’s popular seaside destinations, Trat – Samui and Trat – Phuket, will stimulate the tourism in the western provinces of Thailand, and to offer a shortcut to the tourists so they travel less time, without passing through Bangkok. At the same time, to offer a distribution channel to the agriculture business in the region,” said M.L. Nandhika Varavarn, Vice President, Corporate Communications.
Bangkok Airways will be operating flights Trat – Samui and Trat – Phuket (via Samui) on 4 flights weekly (Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) by 70 seated ATR72 type aircraft.
