Bangkok Airways offers unlimited flights through new membership program
Bangkok Airways is now offering unlimited domestic flights through a new membership program. The airline launched the new Elite Card for 100,000 baht, allowing unlimited travel throughout 2021.
Those interested can apply for the card from now until November 30. Tickets for flights from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021 can be booked starting on December 16.
Air Asia had a similar marketing drive when Thai Air Asia offered their “Passport” when they started flying again in July this year with a 3,000 baht one-time fee for unlimited flights up to the end of 2020 and then 100 baht per flight admin charges. But seats were limited on some routes (although The Thaiger successfully booked 48 flights on this passport and had no problems taking advantage of the promotional deal).
The incentive comes after a rough year for airlines, in Thailand and internationally. Travel came to a halt due to Covid-19 restrictions and lockdown measures. Bangkok Airrways suspended all domestic flights from April 7-30. Now airlines are trying to take off again and make up for lost revenue. The marketing vice president for Bangkok Airlines, Chulin Kocharoen, called the Elite Card the company’s “most one-of-a-kind product ever offered.”
“This is an amazing opportunity for our frequent flyers who are seeking our top value-for-money product.”
Along with unlimited travel, Elite Card members get preferred sear assignment, priority baggage handling, priority airport stand by and access to the Blue Ribbon Club with lounge vouchers valued at 4,750 baht. Members also get an extra 10 kilograms of baggage allowance.
