SpiceJet said it will start a new flight, Kolkata to Bangkok, starting Sep 25, and will price it as just Rs 2,999 in the initial period.
SpiceJet used to have flights to Bangkok from Bengaluru and Pune.
SpiceJet will be operating to Bangkok’s state-of-the-art Suvarnabhoomi airport from Kolkata. The price of the ticket in Thai Baht will be 1,499 one-way.
Announcing the new international flight, Sanjiv Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer, SpiceJet Ltd, said, “This flight will also connect passengers to and from other Indian destinations to Bangkok via Kolkata.”
SpiceJet hopes that the Puja Holidays and festive season will drive traffic to Bangkok.
Bangkok is a popular destination for Indian holidayers, especially as it has a visa on arrival scheme for Indians.
