Qatar Airways launches new Thailand route
"I am delighted to be able to inaugurate the first service to Krabi, providing travelers from key markets with direct access to Krabi and the region’s tourism hot spots – undeniably some of the most popular and sought-after travel destinations in the world," Marwan Koleilat, senior vice president of Asia Pacific at Qatar Airways, said. "Thailand remains an important market for Qatar Airways as we continue to explore key secondary destinations to better serve the global traveler."
Qatar Airways, which already flies to Bangkok and Phuket, will offer service to Krabi four times a week. Flights are already available to the Thailand areas of Bangkok and Phuket. It is expected to add a fourth route to Thailand next year when it launches service to Chiang Mai.
"We wish to express our warmest welcome to Qatar Airways and its new route between Krabi and Doha," Tourism Authority of Thailand Governor Yuthasak Supasorn said. "Thanks to the new route launch, Thailand now has even better connections to the world."
