A fifth daily non-stop service between Doha and Bangkok is being launched by Qatar Airways on 1 June as demand continues to increase on routes which the airline says have become important for business as well as leisure travellers.
The increased frequency, along with double-daily Phuket flights and the four-a-week schedule to Krabi which began five months ago, will take the number of weekly Qatar Airways services between Thailand and Doha to 53.
The new daily flight will be served by the Boeing B787 Dreamliner, providing an additional 254 seats per day with passengers able to choose from 22 seats in Business Class and 232 in Economy.
Both cabins offer up to 3,000 entertainment options on the Oryx One entertainment system and wi-fi. Passengers for other points in Thailand can connect seamlessly with Bangkok Airways codeshare flights to Chiang Rai, Udon Thani and Koh Samui, among others.
Qatar Airways group chief executive Akbar Al Baker, said “Boosting our Bangkok flight frequency to five daily flights is a significant commitment from us to the Thai market and testament to the strong year-round demand on this iconic Far East route.”
