Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai Latest Hub For Bangkok Air



Bangkok Airways will turn Chiang Mai into its third airport hub and use it as a stepping stone to boost its coverage of Myanmar.

The privately owned carrier is set to launch three routes from the northern capital to link with Yangon and Mandalay in Myanmar as well as the northeastern city of Udon Thani (short trip to the ‘Friendship Bridge’ – Vientiane, Laos)  in late October, according to insiders.

Services to Yangon and Mandalay will strengthen the airline’s footprint in Myanmar, tapping fast-growing traffic demand.

Bangkok Airways is already the largest provider of flights from Thailand to Myanmar, operating three routes from Bangkok to Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw with a combined 40 flights a week.


I predict:

1. Bangkok Airways will expand the Chiang Mai hub to include China.

2. Air Asia will follow suit and make Chiang Mai a hub, but will include: Myanmar, China Nepal, and India.
