Bangkok Airways and Emirates Announce Codeshare Agreement

Bangkok Airways and Emirates have commenced a 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.

The partnership will offer a unique advantage for Emirates’ passengers with Bangkok Airways’ services including check-through service, lounge access, and inflight meal.

Peter Wiesner, Bangkok Airways’ Senior Vice President – Network Management, said: “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.”

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 currently offers six daily services to Bangkok and, from December, four of these services will be operated by the airline’s flagship A380 aircraft.
