Bangkok Airways and Lao Airlines in Codeshare Partnership
To strengthen their respective route networks between Thailand and Lao, Bangkok Airways and Lao Airlines have entered into a new codeshare partnership. Thailand’s Bangkok Airways will start direct flights between Yangon and Phuket starting on November 17, Varong Israsena, the Bangkok-based regional airline vice president of sales told The Myanmar Times in Yangon. State-owned Myanmar National Airlines started operating a direct flight between Yangon and Phuket a month ago. The recent relaxation of toursim restrictions in Myanmar has meant that many Thai national companies are setting up operations in Myanmar and even local companies are increasing so there would be an increase in the flow of business travellers between two countries, Mr. Varong said. The Ministry of Hotels and Tourism and Bangkok Airways had also discussed direct flights between Cambodia’s Angkor and the ancient site of Bagan, but the deal fell through because the Department of Civil Aviation would not accept the flight stopping over in Bangkok.

Following the commencement of operations of Bangkok-Da Nang and Bangkok-Phu Quoc direct flights, it is the first airline to inaugurate the direct route Hanoi-Chiang Mai with flights operated by 70 seater ATR 72-500/600 aircraft. “The newly-opened route will be a great option for the people of the dynamic and populous capital as well as all global citizens who want to explore another culturally stunning destination after Hanoi, only two inflight hours without transfer,” said Varong.

Bangkok Airlines A319neo & Cs300 evaluation provides test case before Airbus-Bombardier partnership
Bangkok Airways is in the middle of an evaluation of the Airbus A319neo and Bombardier CS300 as the Thailand based regional airline seeks to replace its fleet of A319ceo aircraft. Bangkok Airways has excluded the E195-E2 from the competition as it is too small, and Boeing is unable to participate because Samui Airport cannot accommodate the 737 MAX 7.
The evaluation comes at an interesting juncture, as Airbus is not expected to conclude its acquisition of a majority stake in the Bombardier CSeries programme until 2H2018. Bangkok Airways aims to make a decision in 2Q2018, which means it may not be able to benefit from a potential joint CS300/A320neo offer from Airbus.
Bangkok Airways uses a large portion of its A319 fleet from Samui, a popular resort island where it owns the airport, whereas larger A320s are only used from Bangkok. The airline plans to continue operating A320s – and could potentially replace A320ceos with A320neos – for its larger non Samui routes.
