“We are delighted to connect Thailand with one of the largest cities of India – Ahmedabad, India’s first World Heritage City, providing Thai people more opportunities and flexible choices to travel to India, as well as welcoming Indian tourists to Thailand. Since tourism is on its track to returning to the pre-pandemic level, we strongly believe that the service between the two destinations would help facilitate the region’s growing travel demand and stimulate the trade recovery of both countries, particularly, the international tourism industry and aviation business,” said Mr. Woranate Laprabang, Chief Executive Officer of Thai Vietjet.
At the start, the new international service from Ahmedabad to Bangkok will operate 3 flights a week, with an approximate flight duration of 3 hours 55 minutes, with the following flight schedule:
|Origin||Destination||Departure||Arrival||Days of Operation|
To celebrate the launch of the new international service, the airline is also launching a special promotion – Let’s go to Bangkok – Shock Sale! – offering special fares starting from INR 0 (exclusive of taxes, fees, and surcharges) for traveling on Thai Vietjet’s new international service Ahmedabad – Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi). The special promotion is available for booking until September 30, 2022, with a travel period from October 21, 2022 – March 25, 2023 at th.vietjetair.com (terms and conditions applied).
Khun Auttapon Thawesuntorn, the Deputy Director of TAT Mumbai added, I am pleased to announce the new international services introduced by ThaiVietJet. Thailand has always been a destination for last-minute travel plans because of its proximity and ease of travel. Direct flights from Ahmedabad to Bangkok only make it even more convenient for travelers from Gujarat specifically. With the takeoff of this route, I am very hopeful to see the arrival numbers into Thailand increasing at a steady space.
Currently, Thai Vietjet is operating double daily flight services from Bangkok to Phnom Penh and Singapore, while operating the direct flight from Bangkok to Fukuoka with the frequency of 4 flights per week and to be increased to 5 flights per week in October. The airline also operates the direct flight from Bangkok to Taipei (Taoyuan) with a frequency of 1 flight a week every Thursday, and to be increased to 2 flights per week in October.
In addition, Thai Vietjet, in cooperation with Vietjet Group has remained stable flight services between Thailand and Vietnam: from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City with a frequency of up to 5 flights daily, and since March 2022, has resumed direct service between Bangkok and Da Nang, with the frequency of two flights per day. The airline will also commence the direct service from Bangkok to Phu Quoc, starting from October 2022, with a frequency of 4 flights per week
Currently, fully vaccinated passengers entering Thailand are no longer required to possess a certificate of COVID-19 test prior to entering the country nor undertake quarantine upon arrival. Passengers are also not required to apply for Thailand Pass before departure.
As the Fastest Growing Low-cost Carrier of the Year 2020 (awarded by Global Business Outlook Magazine, London), Thai Vietjet has continuously expanded its flight network, both domestic and international. The airline has recently been awarded the ‘New Airline Award’ of the Changi Airline Award 2022 for commencing flight services to Changi Airport despite COVID-19, highlighting the airline’s contributions toward maintaining the resilience of the Singapore air hub during the pandemic.
