As of April 2022, we have seen a 36% recovery in seat capacity between the two countries and we look forward to welcoming back more passengers at Changi Airport as travel in the region resumes,” said Lim Ching Kiat, Managing Director, Air Hub Development, Changi Airport Group.

CEO of Thai Vietjet Woranate Laprabang said the launch of new service Bangkok – Singapore marks another successful milestone for Thai Vietjet. “We are thrilled to connect Thailand and Singapore through direct flights that will provide more leisure and business accessibility and opportunities for the citizens & travelers from both countries.  After a long period of pandemic disruption, the services connecting Thailand and Singapore will play a critical role in assisting the two nations’ trade & economic recovery while also serving the growing travel demand in the region”, he said.
