Thai AirAsia grows upbeat in route expansion in the Indian market with the launching of direct flights from Bangkok to Kolkata for 7 times a week. Ticket reservation begins today, with the inaugural flight starting 16 December 2016. At present, the flight addition contributes to a total of four destinations in India for Thai AirAsia; including southern cities of Chennai, Bengaluru and Kochi, and Kolkata as the most recent and first destination in eastern India.
India has shown blossoming growth potential, especially in the economic hub of Kolkata where AirAsia foresees many new opportunities. As the capital city of West Bengal State, Kolkata not only reflects rich harmonization of Western and Eastern cultures, but the city is also home to enchanted heritage with colonial-style architectures and buildings. The airline is thus expanding its network to the major cities in India which not only have great growth potential, but also display noteworthy contribution to national economy and tourism.
For Thai AirAsia, Bangkok-Kolkata is the first route departing from Bangkok to eastern India where Kolkata serves as an economic engine of the country’s Northeastern and Eastern region. Thai AirAsia is fully ready to further penetrate the Indian market this year and has been confident in the great growth potential, bolstered by escalation of brand familiarity locally and the airline’s amiable reception in the past. Existing routes also activate high demand as our direct flights to Chennai and Bengaluru maintained a Load Factor Average of 83% in 2016 and our Kochi route was well received as soon as it was introduced in May this year.
Thai AirAsia anticipates the new route to receive high demand from Kolkata travelers and expects it will promise increased popularity. Indian tourists can enjoy convenient Fly Thru service connections to travel beyond Bangkok from Don Mueang Airport to over 35 destinations in Thailand such as Phuket, Krabi, Hat Yai, Surat Thani and even other countries & cities such as Singapore, Macau and Ho Chi Minh City.
