Bangkok Airways Update

Bangkok Airways SVP Peter Wiesner discusses expansion plans for 2016 including more aircraft, possible new destinations and additional codeshare partners. Domestic market conditions are challenging, prompting Bangkok Airways to suspend services to Udon Thani. But the airline differentiates itself from LCCs by relying heavily on traffic from passengers originating outside Southeast Asia and having a large operation at the resort island of Samui, where it owns an airport that is not served by any LCCs.  Mr Wiesner discusses opportunities for further growth to its regional international network and at Samui, where Bangkok Airways is now preparing to upgrade and expand its airport.
