BANGKOK, 18 October 2018: Qatar Airways is making changes to flights to Thailand and Vietnam during the winter timetable that kicks in 31 October.
On the Bangkok run, the airline will replace some of its Boeing 777-300 flights with the newer A350-900s, effective 1 December.
Also, effective at the start of the winter timetable, 31 October, the airline will increase frequencies on its Doha-Bangkok route from six to seven daily, which includes a daily A380 service.
On its route to Krabi, in South Thailand, the airline intends to replace its A330-200 aircraft with the Boeing Dreamliner 787-8 on four weekly flights at the start of the winter timetable.
Flights will increase to daily on the Krabi route, effective 1 December, which is the start of the peak season for travel to Thailand’s Andaman coastal resorts.
Three weekly flights to Pattaya on Thailand’s eastern seaboard continue giving the airline five destinations in Thailand; Bangkok, Phuket, Krabi, Chiang Mai and Pattaya.
In neighbouring Vietnam, instead of extending one of its Doha-Bangkok flights to Hanoi the airline turns the flight around in Bangkok as of 28 October.
Hanoi will then be served by two direct Doha – Hanoi flights rather than one direct and the other via Bangkok. It will use a mix of the Boeing Dreamliner 787-8 and A330-200 aircraft.
Using a Dreamliner 787, Qatar will launch a brand new four-weekly service from Doha to Danang in central Vietnam, effective 19 December.
