Phuket to benefit from EVA – Bangkok Air agreement

PHUKET TOWN: Bangkok Airways and Taipei-based long-haul carrier EVA Air have signed a ‘code share’ agreement for services from Amsterdam, Vienna, London (Heathrow) and Taipei to Phuket, Koh Samui, Phuket and Chiang Mai.

A code share agreement enables two airlines to sell seats on the same flight.

Under the agreement, EVA will operate the international flights and Bangkok Air will handle the domestic leg, making it easier for tourists to get to their final destinations.

Bangkok Airways President Capt Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth said he expects the agreement, effective from March, to benefit Thailand’s tourism outlook ‘to a great extent’.
