Thai Lion Air (TLA) has pre-empted other Thai-registered airlines in the new year with the introduction of two new routes.
The low-cost carrier subsidiary of Indonesia’s Lion Group has set 10 February for the simultaneous launch of Bangkok-Trang and Chiang Mai-Surat Thani routes, according to airline executives.
The Bangkok-Trang route is particularly significant for TLA, as it has waited almost a year for permission from Thai authorities to launch the route.
Chiang Mai-Surat Thani represents TLA’s second domestic inter-regional connection, following successful non-stop flights between Udon Thani and Hat Yai.
TLA’s 9 other domestic routes, as well all six international routes, originate from Bangkok’s Don Mueang airport.
The airline will operate two daily flights on the Bangkok-Trang route and a daily service on Chiang Mai-Surat Thani.
