Under the air bubble arrangement, Thai Airways is all set to operate flights to and from five Indian cities from March 1. Similarly, India may reopen regularly scheduled flights from March 15, 2022. Air Bubbles have been the way countries are allowing travellers to move from one destination to another, as regularly scheduled flights stand suspended. The national carrier of Thailand has shared this news with stakeholders in India, saying that Bangkok will not have flights to Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Mumbai. However, the flights are subject to approval from the Indian government.
A statement by the airline said, “We are pleased to advise that with effective March 1, 2022, Thai Airways flights will commence between India and Thailand under Air Travel Bubble. The schedule of flights and fares is updated in all the GDS.”
Thailand is a major tourist destination for Indians. The passengers travelling to Thailand should keep in mind that they have to meet all travel requirements, and also could be facing health control measures.
It has been reported that there will be five flights per week between Delhi and Bangkok, while Mumbai and Bangkok will get three times a week, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Flights between Bangkok and Chennai will fly three times a week, and Bengaluru on the other hand will get two flights per week.
On the other hand, India is looking to restart regularly scheduled flights from next month after two years. The tentative date as of now is March 15, 2022.
