Dubai’s first and only low-cost carrier (LCC), flydubai, will launch a double-daily service to Thailand’s capital city, Bangkok, on 29 November 2016.
Bangkok is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, offering holidaymakers a variety of attractions and experiences, including adventure, sport tourism and health & wellness retreats.
Commenting on the announcement of the new route, Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO at flydubai, said: “Bangkok is an extremely popular destination and the launch of double daily flights reflects the increasing maturity of the flydubai network and operation. This route launch is an important milestone for flydubai, offering business and leisure travellers from both Dubai and Bangkok increased choice and flexibility across our network.”
flydubai will operate its services between Dubai International’s Terminal 2 (DXB) and Bangkok International Airport (BKK). Business Class return fares to Bangkok will start at AED 3,999 while Economy Class return fares will start at AED 1,499, including taxes.
The new route will allow for alternative travel options into neighbouring cities that all lie within easy reach of Bangkok as well as connecting routes for those looking to use Dubai as a hub into Russia and Europe.
Passengers will also have the option of a Business Class experience, benefiting 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.
Passengers travelling in Economy Class on the new Bangkok route will have access to interactive audio and video seat back entertainment systems with more than 2,000 hours of films, television and music.
Sudhir Sreedharan, SVP, commercial (GCC, Subcontinent and Africa) for flydubai, said: “Since its launch, flydubai has developed a network of more than 85 destinations. With the launch of our double daily Bangkok route, we will be further expanding travel opportunities for passengers looking to use Dubai as a hub for connecting routes from the GCC to Russia and Europe.”
