Thai Airways International to manage Chittagong Airport

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com 2 July 2004

Thai Airways International has received approval from the Bangladeshi Cabinet to manage Chittagong Shah Amanat International Airport, in Chittagong, Bangladesh, for a period of 10 years. 

THAI is currently in the process of concluding contract negotiations with the airport’s current management, the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB). Mr. Kanok Abhiradee, THAI’s President, said that the airline’s corporate strategy is to develop profitable business units related to the airline’s core business, yet these businesses would be operated separately.

THAI holds much expertise in the area of providing airline services for customer airlines operating to and from Bangkok International Airport, those being catering, passenger check-in, ground handling, cargo handling, and technical services. THAI will also be providing these airline services to air carriers operating to and from Chittagong Shah Amanat International Airport.

THAI will be responsible for collecting airport landing fees and related tariffs on behalf of the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh, in addition to other aspects of airport management and coordination with air carriers operating to and from the airport in Chittagong. THAI has also expressed an interest in managing other international airports, such as those located in China and Myanmar.

THAI currently operates three flights per week on the route Bangkok-Chiang Mai-Chittagong v.v. on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, utilizing Airbus 300-600 aircraft. The onward flight departs Bangkok at 1025 hours and arrives in Chittagong at 1300 hours (local time), with the return flight departing Chittagong at 1355 hours (local time) and arriving in Bangkok at 1830 hours.
