flydubai inaugurates Bangkok service

New route marks the airline’s first double daily launch outside the GCC

Dubai-based flydubai has officially launched its Bangkok service, marking the start of its first double daily route outside of the GCC.

The inaugural flight from Dubai International Terminal 2 landed at Bangkok International Airport today, providing connecting routes for travel through Dubai. As a popular tourist destination, Bangkok offers holidaymakers a variety of experiences from adventure, sport, and health and wellness retreats. In addition, flights to Bangkok will provide passengers with alternative travel options into neighbouring South East Asian cities.

Commenting on the launch of the new route, Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer at flydubai, said: “Today’s inaugural flight to Bangkok is a significant milestone for our airline and represents the increasing maturity of flydubai’s network. We look forward to offering business and leisure travellers from both Dubai and Bangkok increased choice and flexibility across our network.” Reflecting on the recent passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Ghaith Al Ghaith added: “We would like to express our heartfelt condolences to the Thai people on the loss of their King. flydubai joins the nation in mourning their leader.”

Speaking at a press conference held with the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), Sudhir Sreedharan, Senior Vice President, Commercial (GCC, Subcontinent and Africa) for flydubai, said: “Bangkok is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world, offering a wide range of attractions and activities. With the addition of this important city to flydubai’s growing network we will not only offer passengers from Dubai alternative travel options through Thailand, but additionally connect Thailand to Russia and Europe via Dubai, strengthening the UAE’s position as an international travel hub.”

Thailand is the latest addition to flydubai’s network of more than 90 destinations, offering increased choice and flexibility for business and leisure passengers. By the end of the second half of the year the airline will have added eight new aircraft to its fleet. flydubai has recently launched its rewards programme, OPEN, designed to make earning and spending reward points simple and straightforward.

Discussing the start of flydubai flights to Bangkok, Tanes Petsuwan, the TAT Deputy Governor for International Marketing (Europe, Africa, Middle East and Americas) said “flydubai’s new direct flights between Dubai and Bangkok adds another welcome dimension to UAE-Thailand relations in a number of ways. The start of these flights brings fresh promise to our business and trade ties, our respective roles as regional trade fair capitals, and to our cultural and tourism development.”

Passengers travelling on the new Bangkok route will have the option of a Business Class experience, benefitting 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. WiFi services are available on half of the flydubai fleet. 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 1,200 hours of films, television and music. A hot meal is also included.

For the launch of flights to Bangkok, flydubai is offering special promo rates. Business Class return fares to Bangkok will start at AED 3,240 while Economy Class return fares will start at AED 1,240 including taxes. Flights can be purchased from flydubai’s website (flydubai.com), its Customer Centre (+971) 600 54 44 45, flydubai travel shops or through travel partners.
