Hong Kong based airline Cathay Pacific announced the launch of a daily non-stop flight from Delhi to Bangkok from March 30.
The Delhi-Bangkok non-stop flight will take five-and-a-half hours. It will leave New Delhi at 3.30 am and reach Bangkok at 8.55 am. The airline will leave Bangkok at 5.25 pm and reach New Delhi at 7.45 pm (local time).
At present Cathay Pacific flies to Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Bangalore. It has two daily flights from Delhi to Hong Kong and 10 flights a week from Mumbai.
Nok Air will resume flights between Bangkok and Phuket on February 20th, 2009. Flights on this route were suspended while the airline was restructuring last year. At the present time Nok Air operates from Don Muang airport in Bangkok. Current schedule shows two flights per day on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, and one flight per day on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. Nok Air is partially owned by Thai Airways International.
Bangkok Airways will increase flight frequency on the “Bangkok - Chiang Mai”, “Bangkok - Phuket” and “Phuket - Samui” routes starting this winter schedule from October 26th onwards.
Thai Airways International plans to increase frequency of direct flights from Bangkok to Moscow from three to four flights per week from October.
Executive vice-president for commercial, Mr Pandit Chanapai, said the airline anticipated the demand from Russians for Thailand would increase significantly during the high season, which started from October, hence increasing the flight frequency on the route was commercially viable.
