China's Hainan Airlines launches Beijing-Bangkok route

BANGKOK, Oct 1 - China's Hainan Airlines has opened a new route, from Beijing to Bangkok, offering services four days a week.

The airline's Bangkok manager, Tang Wei, said the flight operates Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday so that travellers from Beijing and surrounding areas have more options to fly when travelling to Thailand. The airline also provides facilities and services to Thai tourists and businessmen.

According to Hainan Airlines, a number of Chinese travellers like to visit Thailand during their summer, as travel expenses are not different than going to domestic resort destinations in China. Travelling to Thailand also enables Chinese holidaymakers to make photos of another culture and share them with relatives and friends via social networking sites on the internet.

Concerning the political situation in Thailand, the airline manager said he is confident regarding the safety of tourists and business visitors to the country, including Bangkok. (MCOT online news)
