Phuket's Happy Air has established a new base in Nakhon Ratchasima, a.k.a. Korat, in order to operate more flights to towns in the North and Northeast of Thailand.
The airline will base two aircraft in the northeastern city and one in Phuket.
Happy Air sales and marketing manager Phatcharapon Sontipun says the airline is confident its Nakhon Ratchasima hub can be developed into its main operational base.
The airport comes under the Civil Aviation Department, with lower parking and landing fees than at Phuket International Airport which is managed by Airports of Thaland.
“We will keep one aircraft in Phuket and have two operating out of Korat by October 1,” Phatcharapon says.
