JET Asia Airways has taken another step into scheduled flight territory with the recent launch of twice-weekly charter services between Bangkok and Tokyo.
Flights from Suvarnabhumi Airport depart every Sunday and Tuesday at 00.45 to arrive at Tokyo’s Narita International Airport at 09.15. Return flights leave Tokyo every Wednesday and Friday at 14.00 and touch down in Bangkok at 18.30 the same day.
“The recent waiver for Thais travelling to Japan has sparked an influx of Thais travelling to Japan and is the driving force of our service to Narita,” said Veerawat Singhamany, marketing manager at Jet Asia Airways in a press release.
The Bangkok-based carrier is increasingly moving away from a traditional model reliant on charter flights towards scheduled services (TTG Asia e-Daily, September 27, 2013), and intends to launch fully scheduled flights by 2014.
