October 10, 2019: Thai Smile Airways is set to expand its reach in the Indian market by launching direct flights between Ahmedabad and Bangkok. The airline will connect Ahmedabad, its seventh destination in India, four times a week.
The inaugural flight will take off from the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport in Ahmedabad for Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport on October 29.
Two classes will be available on the flights: Smile Plus (premium economy) and Smile Class (economy class), both offering full catering on board, advance-booking services and maximum free luggage allowance of 40 kgs.
Charita Leelayudth, chief executive officer, Thai Smile Airways Co. Ltd said, "Thai Smile is continuously expanding its routes to India, offering 38 weekly flights to seven cities, namely Gaya, Varanasi, Jaipur, Lucknow, Mumbai, Kolkata and now Ahmedabad. We have enjoyed growth in both inbound and outbound passenger numbers which have led to the increasing cabin factor on every route. In some periods this year, the cabin factor rose to more than 85 percent. Overall, Thai Smile has seen growth of around 20 per cent on its Indian routes. Such growth signifies an increase in the number of Indian tourists who choose Thailand as their destination."
"Ahmedabad is an important destination in our strategy to reach more cities on the Indian subcontinent. We are confident that with our reputation of providing impressive experiences and services, Thai Smile will become a leader in the Indian market in the near future," she added.
