Long route low cost carrier Nokscoot is looking at starting its first service towards Japan with Tokyo Narita being the carriers first destination from December.
Japan - Asakusa shrine is one of the most sort after places to be viewd by foreign travellers in Japan's capital Tokyo. Since Japan exempted Thai passengers of visa requirements for a stay inferior to 16 days, the number of Thai vistors is just rising in numbers. Thai tourists to japan might top this year 750,000 visitors and the magic number of a two million Thai in the country of the 'Rising Sun' might be reached by the end of 2016.
It is not a surprise that carriers are rushing to open destinations between both nations. Since 2014, long-established airways such as All Nippon Airways, Japan Airways and Thai Airways International sharply increased capacities, particularly with the release of slots for international airlines at Haneda airport in Tokyo, But they have since been joined or will be joined in the future by an additional three airlines. Jet Asia Airlines turned last year its charter services into a regular scheduled routes between Bangkok Suvarnabhumi and Tokyo Narita. Newly established airline Thai AirAsia X will unveil this week its schedule to Tokyo, its second long-route destination. The carrier will also fly to Tokyo Narita.
Futhermore, NokScoot, the long-destination low cost subsidiary between Nok Air and Scoo Airways is also eyeing the crowded Japan-Thai market. In an interview with Japan newspaper The Nikkei, Nok Air CEO Patee Sarasin revealed plans to open a daily flight between Bangkok Don Mueang and Narita. This would be the first destination service of NokScoot.
Nok Airways is now looking to increase its presence on international markets. Nok Airways is now confirming to look at launching daily routes from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. Sarasin reveals and also is looking at serving more Indochinese destination in Myanmar. It already has destinations to Yangon and from Mae Sot to Mawlamyine formerly known as Moulmein-in the Southern part of that nation.
