Direct flights from Kazakhstan to Phuket and Samui to be launched this year
Tourism Authority of Thailand is negotiating with the Kazakh airlines for the opening of new flights.
Thailand resorts can become closer to Kazakhstanis. Tourism Authority of Thailand offers to open direct flights from Almaty and Astana to the islands Phuket and Samui, which are the most attractive destinations for tourists from all over the world. These exotic places are visited annually by thousands of our compatriots, Kazpravda.kz reports with reference to the program "Business Time" on TV channel "Almaty".
In addition to well-known Thai hospitality and a high level of service, these resorts have affordable prices. There are no yet direct flights from Kazakhstan to Phuket, Samui and other islands of the Kingdom. Tourists have to get to them with a change in Bangkok, or using charter flights, available only during the tourist season.
"Speaking of the CIS, we see the greatest potential in Kazakhstani tourists. Of course, we would like to increase the flow. Last year, Thailand was visited by about 70,000 tourists. We know that, thanks to a direct flight from Almaty to Bangkok, this figure increased and it has become much easier to fly to Thailand. We hope to continue work in this area and to open flights in October, "- said the managing director of the Tourism Association of Thailand Tanes Petsuvan.
Currently, Tourism Authority of Thailand is negotiating with the Kazakh airlines for the opening of new flights. It will boost not only tourism, but also mutual trade.
