Bangkok Airways continues to strengthen its network to Vietnam out of Thailand. The carrier will add from January a route between Bangkok Suvarnabhumi and Nha Trang/Cam Ranh in Central Vietnam. It will be the only non-stop service between both cities.
2018 will stay as a special year for Bangkok Airways in Vietnam. After opening Bangkok-Phu Quoc Island in 2017, Bangkok Airways introduced the first non-stop route between Chiang Mai and Hanoi last March, offering a daily flight with an ATR72. The carrier is flying this winter on a daily basis between Bangkok and Phu Quoc compared to four flights a week last spring.
From January 25, 2019, Bangkok Airways will inaugurate its fourth destination in Vietnam with a new service linking Bangkok and Nha Trang. The airline will initially offer four flights a week (Monday, Wednesday Friday and Sunday) with a 144-seater Airbus A319 aircraft.
Bangkok Airways President Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, declared that, “Bangkok Airways is pleased to offer this new service to Nha Trang, known as the “Riviera of Asia.” The city has been one of the most desired beach holiday destinations for upscale Vietnamese and European tourists. In addition to that, Nha Trang has experienced rapid growth in the number of visitors every year, not to mention constant support from the Vietnamese Government in putting this city on the world map. We consider this to be another milestone, as this will make Bangkok Airways the only scheduled airline to fly direct to this popular beach holiday destination from Thailand.”
“We anticipate that the majority of our passengers will be businessmen and tourists from the two countries. Moreover, having a link to Nha Trang/Cam Ranh will make it easier for passengers to connect by road to Dalat and Mui Ne,” he added.
Out of Bangkok, Bangkok Airways will then fly on a daily basis to Danang and Phu Quoc as well as four times a week to Nha Trang in addition to its daily service between Chiang Mai and Hanoi.
All passengers of Bangkok Airways can enjoy a lounge at Suvarnabhumi and Chiang Mai airports where they can enjoy finger food, a choice of hot or cold drinks as well as free Wi-Fi Internet access.
