Qatar Airways is continuing its expansion in Asia with additional flight to Bangkok, providing its passengers even more flexibility in visiting the Thai capital.

The new service to Bangkok, which commences on 25 March, is part of the airline’s continued expansion in Southeast Asia, following its launch of direct service to Thailand’s Chiang Mai late last year. The airline is also preparing to launch direct service to the Thai city of Pattaya later this month, as well as service to Penang, Malaysia in February.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said they are delighted to announce the additional service to Bangkok, and make it easier for passengers to visit the Land of Smiles.

Thailand is one of our most popular destinations, for both leisure and business travellers alike, and we will continue to provide our passengers even more opportunity to experience this captivating country.’

Qatar Airways currently operates 14 times per week to Phuket, daily to Krabi and four times per week to Chiang Mai. The additional service to Bangkok will take the number of weekly flights to the Thai capital to 42.

Aside from being voted the Skytrax ‘Airline of the Year’ by travellers from around the world, Qatar’s national carrier also won a raft of other major awards last year, including ‘Best Airline in the Middle East,’ ‘World’s Best Business Class’ and ‘World’s Best First Class Airline Lounge.’

Qatar Airways operates a modern fleet of more than 200 aircraft to a network of more than 150 key business and leisure destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America. The airline is launching a host of exciting new destinations this year in Canberra, Australia and Cardiff, UK.
