Thai Lion upgrades China-Phuket service

BANGKOK, 8 August 2018 Thai Lion Air will upgrade its Phuket – Zhengzhou charters to full scheduled services effective 16 August, according to timetable information from Airlineroute.

Up until now the airline has operated scheduled charters sold through Chinese tour operators, but the airline confirmed it was converting the Phuket – Zhengzhou service into a scheduled flight.

This allows passengers to book seats on the Phuket-Zhengzhou flight directly with the airline instead of through tour operators, who had a free sale agreement or bought advance seat allotments.

The best deal for travel this month quoted by the airline’s website is THB9,845 roundtrip.

Effective 16 August the airline will offer four-weekly services on the route using a Boeing 737-900 aircraft.

Flight SL976 will depart Phuket on Monday, Thursday and Saturday at 0825 and on Tuesday the flight will depart Phuket at 1015.
