Jet Airways is poised to serve Thailand for the first time when it inaugurates daily flights to Bangkok on January 23.
The privately-owned Indian carrier will operate these useful links from both Delhi and Calcutta using two-class B737-800s.
Jet Airways CEO Wolfgang Prock-Schauer says: “With the strengthening of economic ties between India and Thailand there has been a marked increase in business and tourist traffic between the two countries. And as well as serving the Bangkok area, our flight from Delhi arrives in time for early-morning connections throughout the SE Asian region.”
The Delhi-Bangkok service departs at 0045 to arrive at 0635. The return service leaves Bangkok at 1805 to arrive at 2105.
In the case of Calcutta-Bangkok, the service departs at 1155 and arrives at 1615. It returns at 0920 to reach Calcutta at 1020.
Jet Airways’ B737-800 seats 24 passengers in business and 126 in economy class. Business passengers have use of the Panasonic eFX entertainment system with 9-inch monitors. Economy passengers have 7-inch seatback monitors.
Introductory return fares between Delhi and Bangkok start at £153 for economy, £324 for business class. For Calcutta-Bangkok the rates are £74 and £210 respectively. All prices exclude local taxes, charges and fees.
