The Star Alliance carrier currently uses the airport as a stopover on flights to Manila and Kuala Lumpur Int’l and, according to Taye, will incorporate the Thai capital into its upcoming Hanoi route which launches in November this year. It also plans to add connecting routes through Bangkok to Singapore Changi and Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta by March next year, he added.

In a bid to stimulate increased tourism to the country, the Thai government has adopted a liberal policy in the allocation of Fifth Freedom traffic rights to foreign carriers.
