Bangkok Airways offering up to a 20% discount to certain groups of Thais



Bangkok Airways is offering 10 to 20% off its standard rates to certain groups of Thai citizens. The demographic groups are split into 5 categories: senior citizens who are 60 years old or over, undergraduates which include students and teachers, disabled persons, travel-related professionals and government officials.

All groups will receive 20% discounts except government officials who will receive 10%.

The discounts are valid on reservations made through December 31, 2020 with travelling dates valid as of October 1 onwards. Such standard rates or fares are the ones posted on the airline’s websites and not on travel agency sites. Passengers receiving the discounts must provide proof of receiving the discount to airline staff upon checking in for their flights.

Yeah, ummm… just Thai citizens get the special deals.

    Air Asia give government politicians free flights.
    And have complained that they lose money because the government politicians do no arrive.
    They could not sell the seat because it was for a politician.

    There’s no difference there then, it’s same when you holiday or even live there, Thais always pay less than tourists.

    Dual pricing at’s finest, no wonder tourism is down and Ex Pats were leaving in their droves way before Covid 19
