India and Thailand set to get flights under air bubble arrangement


Thai Airways has announced that flights will soon resume between the two countries as part of the air bubble agreement. Thailand’s national carrier has shared the news with stakeholders in India, saying Bangkok will have no flights to Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore and Mumbai from March 1.

The flights are however subject to Indian government approval. A statement from the airline said: “We are pleased to announce that effective March 1, 2022, Thai Airways flights will commence between India and Thailand under Air Travel Bubble. The flight schedule and fares are updated in all GDS.

Air bubbles have been how countries allow travelers to move from one destination to another as regular flights are suspended.

Passengers planning to travel to Thailand, however, should keep in mind that they must meet all travel requirements and may also face health screening measures. Thailand is a major tourist destination for Indians.

It has been reported that there will be five flights per week between Delhi and Bangkok, while Mumbai and Bangkok will have three flights per week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Flights between Bangkok and Chennai will fly three times a week, and Bengaluru, on the other hand, will fly twice a week.

On the other hand, India is looking to restart regular scheduled flights from next month after two years. The tentative date to date is March 15, 2022.
