Beginning 1st October, Thai Vietjet will Operate Nonstop Flights between Ahmedabad and Bangkok

Thai VietJet Air, a budget airline in Thailand and a partner of VietJet Air in Vietnam, will start operating three-weekly nonstop flights between Bangkok and Ahmedabad on 1st October this year. The airline has announced this journey at special offer fares with a travel time of under four hours. This added competition is welcome news for both countries, as it will give visitors to India and Bangkok another reasonable flight option.
Jay L. Lingeswara, the director of commercial operations at Vietjet, mentioned that widening the airline’s routes to India is an invitation to tourists from the subcontinent to enjoy Vietnam as a destination and use it as a passage to other parts of East, South and North Asia. Thai VietJet also runs flights from Bangkok to Phnom Penh, Singapore, and Fukuoka.

Surasit Sachdev, co-founder and CEO of Hungry Hub, highlights that the platform focuses on transforming the hotel and restaurant industry. This caters to OR’s vision of being an essential plug in the lifestyle segment, working as a win-win for consumers of both companies.

The show by itself is ahead of its time, featuring a Pakistani-American super-hero in popular culture, and having community members like Kash line its cast is a matter of celebration for all of us. Kudos!
