Qatar Airways announced expansion of codeshare flights with Bangkok Airways. The new code-shares come after a year of rapid expansion for Qatar Airways across the globe, with the addition of 12 new destinations throughout the course of 2014, together with frequency and capacity increases across the network.
The expansion of this agreement with Bangkok Airways will enhance Qatar Airways' passengers’ options as it adds 10 additional sectors from Bangkok to Chiang Rai, Udon Thani, Luang Prabang, Vientiane, Nay Pyi Taw and Siem Reap, together with Koh Samui to Singapore, Phuket and Kuala Lumpur and Phuket to Chiang Mai.
This will both strengthen and complement Qatar Airways' current code-shares from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, Phuket, Krabi, Lampang, Trat, Sukhothai, Samui, Mandalay, Yangon and Phnom Penh.
Those passengers travelling onto code-share destinations from Bangkok will also benefit from a superior travel experience on board Qatar Airways’ A380 aircraft, which commenced service to the city in December last year. Complementing the airline’s four-times daily service to Bangkok, this aircraft allows passengers the opportunity to experience the latest aircraft to join the Qatar Airways’ fleet.
Meanwhile, those travelling onwards from Phuket, will also benefit from the airline’s direct daily scheduled service from Doha, which commenced in 2014. The route was previously served from Doha via Kuala Lumpur.
