Thai AirAsia is expanding its Indian network with the launch of direct flights from Bangkok to Kolkata.
The new route will commence on 16 December 2016, with daily flights connecting the two Asian cities, which have a combined population of approximately 20 million people.
Services will depart Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport at 0005 and arrive in Kolkata at 0110. The return flights will then leave at 0210 and arrive back in the Thai capital at 0640.
Reservations have already opened for the new route. Kolkata will become Thai AirAsia’s fourth Indian destination, following Chennai, Bengaluru and Kochi. AirAsia’s Malaysian unit already flies direct between Kuala Lumpur and Kolkata.
Bhutan Airlines, Druk Air, IndiGo, SpiceJet and Thai Airways also operate the Bangkok-Kolkata route.
