Flights this coming winter season will go direct to the Thai beach destination from Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo.
Norwegian will fly to the Thai holiday destination of Krabi from Scandinavia, six times a week from the end of October. However, a scheduled rise in frequencies to Bangkok is being scaled back.
Norwegian said in early May that in the coming winter traffic program it would increase flights from Scandinavia to Bangkok from nine to 14 per week, Check-in reports.
But that is not to be, as Norwegian is keeping its number of frequencies to Bangkok the same. Instead, Krabi is to be introduced as a new destination from Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo.
From each of the three Scandinavian capitals, the carrier will fly twice a week – starting with Oslo on October 28, Stockholm on October 31 and Copenhagen on November 1.
“There is a lot of interest among Scandinavians to travel to Thailand. Therefore, we are pleased to offer another Thai destination,” says the airline’s commercial director Thomas Ramdahl.
“With Krabi our travellers now get even better options and for example can choose to fly to Bangkok on departure and home via Krabi to combine the city with the beach life.”
Krabi is located in southern Thailand, about 800 kilometres south of Bangkok, in an area is known for its beautiful surroundings with wooded mountains and white beaches. Bangkok remains a full-year route for Norwegian, while Krabi is a winter-only route.
When to fly
Norwegian’s departures to Krabi will be on Tuesdays and Sundays from Oslo, Wednesdays and Fridays from Stockholm, and Thursdays and Saturdays from Copenhagen.
Bangkok flights in winter will have three weekly departures from Oslo (Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays) starting October 29; four weekly departures from Stockholm (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays) also starting October 29; and two weekly departures from Copenhagen (Thursdays and Sundays) starting October 27.
