Bangkok Airways first flight success
Bangkok Airways successfully completed its first commercial flight from Suvarnabhumi Airport on Thursday.
Flight PG 600 left Suvarnabhumi Airport at 7.10 AM and arrived at Sukothai Airport in northern Thailand at 8.20 AM, as scheduled.
After testing, the airline is 90 percent ready to provide service at Suvarnabhumi Airport, according to Nijjapat.
Suvarnabhumi will begin full international and domestic services on September 28, as Bangkok International Airport (Don Muang) retires after 80 years.
Bangkok Airways is only operating selected flights at Suvarnabhumi Airport, keeping most of its operation at Don Muang until the change over on September 28. Thai Airways International and low cost airline Jetstar have made similar moves as part of the airport’s soft opening.
