Thai Smile Airways on Wednesday launched their new direct service from Chiang Mai to Nakhon Si Thammarat just in time for the four-day weekend.
Gov. Charoenrit Sanguansat and Thai Smile CEO Wiset Sonthichai were on hand as the first flight departed Chiang Mai International Airport Nov. 18.
Wiset called Nakhon Si Thammarat a major destination for the airline, as it serves both tourists and business travelers. The southern province has unique culture and food and many tourist attractions, he said.
The airline will operate three round-trip flights a week using Airbus A320-200 aircraft seating up to 156 passengers. Fares start at 1,710 baht each way with an allowance for up to 30 kilograms of baggage included.
