As travel to Thailand takes momentum with its recent reopening, MakeMyTrip, India’s leading online travel company, in partnership with ultra-low-cost airline GO FIRST has launched exclusive Air Charter Holiday Services to Phuket. The two companies have come together with an aim to make travelling to the holiday island easy while Phuket continues to remain closed for direct flyers from India.
This industry-first and one-of-a-kind package has been packaged with various travel benefits, value adds and unmissable offers. Speaking on being the first to launch charter holiday services to Phuket, Vipul Prakash, Chief Operating Officer, MakeMyTrip said: “Over the past few quarters our focus has been to build product and services that help make travel during the pandemic easy, safe and convenient. We are pleased to partner with GO FIRST to launch these unique air charter holiday services. As Indian travellers eagerly wait to travel to some of the popular South Asian leisure destinations, we are beyond thrilled as we take a collective step towards offering means to make travel possible to Phuket and we look forward to bringing more destinations within reach.”
Commenting on the partnership, Kaushik Khona, Chief Executive Officer, GO FIRST, said: “Go Airlines had launched international operations in 2018 with its service to Phuket. Phuket has always been a key destination for GO FIRST and holds a significant base for business and tourism. As various countries start withdrawing travel restrictions, we are delighted to partner with MakeMyTrip in welcoming passengers to Phuket and we look forward to providing more flexibility and choice to our customers. These charter flights will further strengthen our international network, while offering our passengers additional choice and flexibility to plan their vacation.”
As part of the package, the company will offer end-to-end travel services including airport transfers, Thailand Pass application assistance, early check-in and check-out at premium properties, travel insurance, return RT-PCR assistance among others. These charter holiday packages have been designed and packaged to offer unique leisure and stay experiences in Phuket.
Khun Vachirachai Sirisumpan, Director of Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) said: “We are very pleased to support MakeMyTrip and GO FIRST, and look forward to welcoming travellers from India to Phuket.”
