Mr. Chaisak said the dca on thursday morning met executives of the national flag carrier and bangkok airways, a private firm which owns samui airport.

After the meeting, he told journalists that starting from mid-february, thai airways would offer passengers two flights a day from suvarnabhumi airport to samui airport. The opening of the new route is in line with the policy of the transport ministry to give more alternatives to passengers.

The airfare is expected to be similar to that currently offered by Bangkok Airways. The new route is expected to be popular among foreign tourists as they will be able to travel by a direct flight from Suvarnbhumi to samui’s tourist destinations in the southern province of Surat thani. (TNA)
