Bangkok Airways, non-stop from Phuket to ChiangMai
Bangkok Airways announced the launch of 4 new non-stop flights with one of them being from Phuket to ChiangMai starting from the 26th of October 2014.
Ms. Ariya Prasarttong-Osoth, Vice President – Sales of Bangkok Airways said, “Bangkok Airways will be operating new services from Chiang Mai to Phuket, Udon Thani, Mandalay and Yangon, as we foresee Chiang Mai is another important hub for Thailand’s tourism industry. We consider that Chiang Mai is a major commercial city in the Northern region and also a gateway to Indochina. Chiang Mai is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Thailand, attracting a large number of both Thai and foreign tourists. By utilizing Chaing Mai International Airport as another hub, it will enhance Bangkok Airways’ ability to support the growing demand for air travel when the AEC takes place in 2015. It will also allow us to provide better flight connections for our passengers who wish to continue their travel to the Northeastern and Southern part of Thailand as well as to the neighboring country Myanmar without having to fly back to Suvarnabhumi Airport to connect to those destinations.”
The daily flight departs from Phuket at 11.30am and arrives in ChiangMai at 1.40pm while the flight from ChiangMai to Phuket leaves at 2.20pm and arrives in Phuket at 4.25pm.
