Thai Vietjet Becomes First Airline in Thailand to Operate New Airbus A321

  /  DESTINATIONS   /  Thai Vietjet Becomes First Airline in Thailand to Operate New Airbus A321

Thai Vietjet took under its wing a new Airbus A321 last month, which is the sixth in its fleet and the first airplane of its kind to be based in the country with any carrier.

The aircraft, named “Gardenia,” was configured in a 230-seat format by the Vietjet Group, to provide passengers increased comfort and more transportation opportunities. Fitted with comfy leather-covered seats and high-quality carpeting, the new member of the Thai Vietjet family boasts particular spaciousness for passengers flying in the front section’s seats dedicated to SkyBoss, the airline’s premium service. The new aircraft is also outfitted with Sharklet wingtips to help decrease its emission and the company’s carbon footprint.

“Thai Vietjet is proud to offer our passengers highly modern, very safe flight experiences. The delivery of the new A321 marks another milestone for our business expansion, and also new job opportunities for pilots, aircrew, and others,” said Captain Itsarawut  Klaysutti, Director of Flight Operation – Thai Vietjet, who was on the inaugural flight.

The new Airbus will fly domestic routes in Thailand from Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi) to Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, as well as international routes. Thai Vietjet currently serves a domestic network of flights between Bangkok and Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phuket, and Krabi, as well as flights between Phuket and Chiang Rai. Internationally, the passenger can be served on the airlines’ flights from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Hai Phong, and Dalat in Vietnam, as well as from Chiang Mai and Phuket to Ho Chi Minh City. Starting October 15, the airline opened new routes directly connecting Bangkok with Danang with daily frequency, and Bangkok with Taichung, Taiwan, from November 3.
