Jet Asia Airways (Bangkok-Suvarnabhumi) has commenced three times weekly scheduled service from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport to Tianjin’s Bihnai International Airport and also to Nanjing’s Lukou International Airport.
In the past year, Jet Asia Airways has operated more than 200 charter flights to both cities combined. Tianjin and Nanjing are two of the fastest growing secondary cities in China.
“The charter flights now turned scheduled have proven to be popular with the Chinese travelers who wish to avoid stopping over in a primary city and prefer to fly directly to Bangkok. Jet Asia will continue to aggressively exercise ‘first mover advantage’ to capitalize on untapped markets between China and Thailand,” said Mr. Chairat Sangchan, Jet Asia’s Managing Director.
Chinese arrivals into Thailand reached 2.78 million passengers in 2012 and is expected to grow to more than 3.5 million in 2013.
