Wisdom Airways has announced that it will commence its inaugural operations this month, nearly half a year after it has taken delivery of its maiden two Cessna (single turboprop) 208B Grand Caravans. The first scheduled route for this aircraft will be from Chiang Mai to Nan Nakhon. This route will run thrice weekly and act as compensation for the termination of Kan Air. Despite plans to launch in December 2017, Wisdom Airways found itself delayed by some six months in comparison to the original schedule mostly due to regulatory obstacles. The AOC of R.P.S. System, which has expired in December 2017, needs to be reactivated. In addition, operations in Thailand's north, in a mountainous terrain and out of poorly equipped airports, require additional certification for the pilots. International flights are also on the cards for Wisdom Airways, who plan to launch flights to Myanmar in the not too distant future.
