The recent launch of a new direct Nok Air flight between Pattaya and Yinchuan, will decrease travel time between the two cities to less than five hours.


In the earlier part of this month, Nok Air introduced a direct route between Pattaya and Southwest China’s Zunyi. At the later part, Thai Smile, a budget airline, introduced a flight between Bangkok and Datong in North China’s Shanxi province. Nok Air has proposed initiation for services to different Chinese cities like Baotou, Linyi, Yichang and Nanchang.


“Adding new services to our growing China network will benefit both the tourism industry and economic development as we bring in more tourists to our country, and vice versa,” said Patee Sarasin, CEO of Nok Air.


This collaboration is expected to enhance the economic cooperation and people-to-people exchanges.


At the time of the eight-day National Day holiday, Thailand was voted the second favorite destination in terms of Chinese tourists after Russia, as per the China National Tourism Administration.
