Low cost Thai Smile airline inaugurates first flight at Don Mueang


Thai Smile, the low cost subsidiary of Thailand’s national flag carrier, Thai Airways International (THAI), officially launched its first flight and services earlier August 8.

The airline expressed satisfaction, as it has been well received by the public and reservations for each flight are booked at more than 90 percent.

The inauguration ceremony took place at Don Mueang Airport, and was attended by THAI, Thai Smile, and Nok Air executives.

According to THAI Senior Executive Vice President for Commercial, Suraphon Israngura Na Ayuthya, Thai Smile has brought three domestic routes to Don Mueang, including three flights each for the Don Muang-Chiang Mai and Don Mueang-Khon Kaen routes, and two flights for the Don Mueang-Phuket route.

The low cost carrier was promoting cheap air tickets prior to its official launching, which was well received by the general public.

THAI and all of its subsidiary airlines will move their bases of operations to Don Muang International Airport in October, and the group plans to create flight schedules which complement one another.

The company believes that the market for services at Don Mueang would expand further in the near future and that more passengers would opt to choose Thai Smile for their journeys.
