Air India flight between Kolkata and Bangkok gets extension till March 2022

Kolkata: The Air India flights between Kolkata and Bangkok have now been extended till March 23, 2022. As per the report by the Times of India (TOI), the flights will continue to operate two times a week, i.e. on Wednesdays and Sundays.

The report revealed that the first two flights acquired around 95 per cent of the bookings. However, there have been several no-shows with passengers being denied the Thai Pass that is mandatory to travel to the country in addition to a visa.

Keeping this in mind, the travel agents have now advised travellers to first apply for the online Thai Pass before making their visa application.

A travel agent said, "Passengers need to provide travel details, stay details, $50,000 worth insurance coverage and a fully vaccinated certificate while applying for the Thai Pass. Once the Pass is issued, the passenger can apply for the visa to ensure hassle-free travel."

The report by TOI disclosed that the $50,000 insurance costs around Rs 600-700 for a person aged around 50 years. Although Air India is the only flight operating, the Thai Smile is expected to introduce a three-times-a-week service from January 2022.
