Commencing on 4 February 2015, Okay Airways will offer four weekly flights from Xi’an to the Thai resort province of Krabi. Services will run every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

Then a day later on 5 February, the airline will launch three weekly flights to Bangkok. This route will operate on the remaining days of the week – Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Also on 5 February, Okay Airways will launch six weekly flights (every day except Saturday) from Xi’an to Hangzhou, the capital of eastern China’s Zhejiang province.

All three new routes will be operated using Okay Airways’ fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft.

Krabi and Bangkok will become the carrier’s second and third international destinations. Currently Okay Airways operates services from Tianjin, Chongqing and Changsha to the Korean island of Jeju.
