Thai Smile launches flights to Krabi from Bangkok

Passengers on Thai Smile’s first flight to Krabi were treated served special treats to commemorate the first service on the route taken over from parent airline Thai Airways International.

  • Thai Smile, Thai Airways’ new low-cost subsidiary that is to be positioned as a premium regional carrier, took over a domestic service from its parent airline on 22 August. From its Bangkok (BKK) base, the A320 operator now flies four times a day to Krabi (KBV) on southern Thailand’s west coast, increasing to five times daily at the start at the winter scheduling season. Thai Airways previously operated the route with 149-seat, two-class 737-400s, whereas Thai Smile’s aircraft are configured with 174 seats in an all-economy configuration. Competition comes from Thai AirAsia’s three flights a day.
