Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Monday, 10 August 2009

Kingfisher Airlines is to launch daily direct flights between Kolkata and Bangkok from August 14, 2009. After London, Colombo, Dhaka and Dubai, Bangkok will be the fifth international destination on Kingfisher's international route network.

The launch of this new route will mark the first time that Kingfisher Airlines operates flights from India to South East Asia. The flights between Kolkata and Bangkok will be operated using the A320 family of aircraft.

The flights are timed with the flight from Kolkata, IT 021 leaving at 11:20 am and reaching Bangkok at 3:15 pm, local time. The return flight, IT 022 will take off from Bangkok at 4:30 pm and reach Kolkata at 5:45 pm.

Kolkata is ideally placed as a transit hub for travelers flying from Bhubaneshwar, Guwahati, Patna and Ranchi into Bangkok as it offers easy connectivity, thanks to the fact that it has a minimum connect time.

 Guests flying in from Bangkok on Kingfisher Airlines will now have the added advantage of having conveniently timed onward connections to many domestic destinations in India with almost immediate connections from Kolkata to Bhubaneswar, Delhi, Mumbai and all major metros in India.

 Buddhist pilgrims flying in from Thailand to Kolkata will also have convenient onward connection to Bodh Gaya.

In the first phase of the roll-out of its international route network, Kingfisher Airlines commenced services from Bangalore to London last year. Earlier this year, Kingfisher Airlines launched daily direct services between Mumbai and London and daily flights connecting Chennai with Colombo, Dhaka with Kolkata and Bangalore with Dubai. Bangkok will be the second international destination to be served by Kingfisher Airlines from Kolkata.
