Emirates and Bangkok Airways
have started a codesharing agreement allowing for passengers to transfer
easily to international flights.
Bangkok Airways (PG) and Emirates (EK) recently announced
the commencement of their codeshare agreement on Bangkok Airways’ selected
flights in Thailand and the region.
The new partnership will enable passengers of Emirates a smooth transit in
Bangkok to connect with all Bangkok Airways’ Thailand network and the
neighbouring countries including Cambodia and Myanmar.
From today onwards, Emirates customers are able to book these codeshare
services with Emirates.
This partnership will offer a unique advantage for Emirates’ passengers with
Bangkok Airways’ unparalleled services including check-through service,
lounge access, in-flight meal.
“The codeshare agreement provides passengers more choices, flexibility and
convenience when travelling between major cities. We expect the codeshare
agreement will offer a boost to tourism in Thailand, as well as in the
region. This new codeshare agreement with Emirates will also strengthen
Bangkok Airways’ extensive codeshare scheme of 18 codeshare partners
including Emirates.” said Mr. Peter Wiesner, Bangkok Airways Senior Vice
President - Network Management.
Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial
Officer, said: "Our new codeshare agreement with Bangkok Airways will
provide our passengers with increased choice, flexibility and ease of
connection to different cities across Southeast Asia to and from Dubai,
ultimately offering a smoother, more convenient travel experience.”
“Emirates already offers six daily services to Bangkok, and from December,
four of these services will be operated by our flagship A380 aircraft. This
provides many options to connect to the region as part of our new codeshare.
Together with Bangkok Airways, we are taking more people to more places and
opening up new South East Asian destinations to people around the world. The
region has some of the most stunning tourist and World Heritage sites
including Schwedagon Pagoda and Angkor Wat, and these sites will now be more
accessible to Emirates travellers. It’s an important partnership as we
continue to expand the destinations available to Emirates' passengers.”
