Kolkata-Thailand tourism back on track after two-year Covid lull

Kolkata: Air travel between Kolkata and Thailand is set to resume after a gap of two years following the India-Thailand air travel bubble approved by both countries on Tuesday. The travel and trade community in Kolkata believe this will revitalise foreign travel from Kolkata.

Already, at least three domestic carriers and one international airline have announced flights between Kolkata and Thai cities starting March 9-10.

IndiGo Airlines, SpiceJet and Go First have announced daily flights to Thailand starting next week. While IndiGo and SpiceJet will operate daily flights to Bangkok, Go First will operate daily to the popular island beach destination, Phuket. Thai Smile, a sister airline of Thai Airways, plans to start thrice-a-week flights between Bangkok and Kolkata from March 16. Sources said IndiGo has applied for a second daily connection, anticipating huge travel demand during the Easter holidays and summer vacation.
