flydubai launches twice daily service to Bangkok
Flydubai is launching a double-daily service to Bangkok, having recently added two new flights a week between Dubai and Bucharest to create a daily service to the Romanian capital.
The Thailand capital is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, offering holidaymakers a variety of attractions and experiences, including adventure, sport tourism and health and wellness retreats.
The expanded Bangkok service launches on 29 November and will operate between Dubai International’s Terminal 2 (DXB) and Bangkok International Airport (BKK).
Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of 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.”
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, 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.
The airline recently introduced WiFi connectivity and Live TV for the first time on selected flights as it continues to roll out the service across the rest of its 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 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.”
