Bangkok Airways will expand its international network by introducing flights to India from March next year after a two-year hiatus.
The carrier will mount flights from Bangkok to Mumbai six times a week using the Airbus A319 two-class jet from March 2, 2011. It will also fly daily from Bangkok to Dhaka using the all economy A320 jet from March 27, 2011.
The Indian subcontinent is the only region where the airline is planning to open new routes, eyeing air services to New Delhi and Kolkata in particular. In 2008, hampered by losses that reportedly reached THB1 billion (US$33.1 million), Bangkok Airways suspended its air services to Ho Chi Minh City, Guilin, Macau, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Xian and Shenzhen.
Currently, the airline’s internationl network includes Hong Kong, Luang Prabang, Phnom Penh, Singapore, Siem Reap, Yangon and Malé.
