Bangkok Airways resumes flights to Dhaka

3 Apr 2013 by ReggieHo

After having suspended its Bangkok-Dhaka service for 12 weeks for "internal discussions on current market feasibility", Bangkok Airways (PG) has decided to resume its service to the Bangladeshi capital next month. The service was first launched in 2010 (see story).

But according to industry website, when the airline flies the route again, it will be using a two-class A319, instead of an all-economy A320 that was used before. A PG spokesperson told Business Traveller that the route is deemed to have high demand, with passenger mix being 70 per cent business and 30 per cent holiday seekers.

Other airlines flying between the two capitals include Biman Bangladesh Airlines, Druk Air (of Bhutan) and Thai Airways.
