Auckland Airport welcomes increased flights on Bangkok to Auckland route
Scott Tasker, Auckland Airport’s general manager aeronautical commercial, says the announcement is great news for New Zealand and will add 65,000 seats to the route and inject $53 million annually into the New Zealand economy.
“Thailand is a popular holiday destination for Kiwis with more than 46,000 New Zealanders travelling there during the past year, with the majority of travelers being holiday makers.”
“Thai Airways last increased their frequency in flights in March 2016 and that resulted in an additional 30,000 seats on the route at the time. It’s impressive to see a route grow so quickly and an additional 65,000 seats now being added,” says Mr Tasker.
