Bangkok Airways and Etihad to codeshare
Etihad Airways and Bangkok Airways have signed a new codeshare agreement which will see the Abu Dhabi-based airline place its two-letter ‘EY’ code on Bangkok Airways’ flights between the Thai capital city and the islands of Phuket and Koh Samui.
Captain Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, president of Bangkok Airways, remarked, “Koh Samui and Phuket are regarded as our favourite destinations for visitors worldwide. To co-operate with Etihad, as one of the leading and fastest-growing airlines in the world, not only increases access for passengers who would love to explore the beauty of these famous destinations, but also help promote and accelerate tourism industry in Thailand. We strongly believe this new co-operation will be very successful.”
Since launching services to the Thai capital in April 2004, Bangkok has established itself as one of Etihad’s most popular business and leisure travel destinations. Average seat factors last year exceeded 80% on the twice daily service.
