THAI Smile eyes flights to Kaohsiung

Korakot: 'Process may take some time'

THAI Smile aims to launch flights to Taiwan's second largest city of Kaohsiung in the second half of this year.

The wholly-owned subsidiary of flag carrier Thai Airways International (THAI) has never operated flights to Taiwan before, and only China Airlines offers the service between Thailand and Kaohsiung with five flights per week, said Korakot Chatasingha, director of THAI's sales department.

"THAI stopped flying to Kaohsiung some time ago. Now we see this is a potential market since Thais are no longer required to seek visas before entering Taiwan," said Mr Korakot.
