Following the launch of services to Singapore in May and Nanjing in June, the carrier has now begun four times weekly flights from Bangkok Don Mueang (DMK) to Taipei Taoyuan (TPE). The 2,485-kilometre route is already served by Tigerair Taiwan and V Air with daily flights, while China Airlines (21 weekly flights) and EVA Air (18 weekly flights) provide direct flights between Bangkok Suvarnabhumi and Taipei. NokScoot will operate the new route with 777-200s. Additional new routes to Qingdao and Tianjin are scheduled to start during the winter season.
