BANGKOK, 12 September 2023: Air India’s passengers can enjoy convenient connections with Bangkok Airways flights to 10 cities in Thailand and neighbouring Laos and Cambodia following the signing of an interline agreement.
The scope of the agreement between the two airlines includes Inter Airline Through Check-In (IATCI) implementation, which enables passengers to receive their boarding passes at the first point of departure for all the travel sectors on a single ticket and have their baggage checked in through to their final destinations.
Bangkok Airways and Air India have also entered a Special Prorate Agreement, which allows both carriers to file ‘through fares’ on routes covering each other’s networks.
Air India passengers can connect to seven destinations in Thailand via Bangkok Airways gateway airport, Suvarnabhumi Airport in the Thai capital. They comprise Chiang Mai, Lampang, Sukhothai, Trat, Samui, Phuket, and Krabi. Beyond Thailand, the agreement is applicable on Bangkok Airways flights to three destinations: Luang Prabang in Laos, Phnom Penh and Siem Reap in Cambodia, also from Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok.
In addition, Air India passengers can connect with Bangkok Airways’ flights to Samui out of Singapore and Hong Kong.
Air India operates direct daily flights to Bangkok from Delhi and Mumbai, daily to Singapore from Delhi (twice daily), Mumbai, and Chennai, and thrice a week to Hong Kong from Delhi.
Bookings are open for the check-through flights featuring end-to-end fares.
