Bangkok Airways flags 27 per cent growth for this year
Sirima Eamtako, Bangkok, February 17, 2011
 

WITH new routes and fresh capacity, Bangkok Airways is anticipating a 27 per cent increase in business this year, with a revenue of 10.5 billion baht (US$340 million) from handling 3.1 million passengers.

 

CEO, Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, said the airline recorded around seven to eight billion baht in revenue last year, having handled 2.6 million passengers.

 

“After a few turbulent years, business has returned to growth last year and is expected to continue to grow further this year,” he said.

 

Flight capacity is slated to grow by 20 per cent in 2011, aided by the carrier's six-weekly Bangkok-Mumbai service starting on March 2 (TTG Asia e-Daily, January 28) and a daily Bangkok-Dhaka flight from March 27.

 

It is also expected to take delivery of a new Airbus A319 or A320 at year-end, joining its fleet of 17 aircraft.
