Koh Samui Villa Rentals – Bangkok Air takes off from Koh Samui to KL

Luxury Villa Rentals Koh Samui are excited by the news that Bangkok Airways are opening up another new route from Koh Samui this year.

Luxury Villa Rentals Koh SamuiBangkok Airways will begin service from Koh Samui to Kuala Lumpur in March to boost connectivity between its second home base and international destinations.

From March 1, the Malaysian capital will be the third international destination the privately owned airline serves directly from the Thai resort island. The other two are Singapore and Hong Kong, with daily flights and 10 per week, respectively.

The Koh Samui-Kuala Lumpur launch will be aligned with the flights through Kuala Lumpur of Malaysia Airlines, soon to become a code-share partner with Bangkok Airways.

One of the key ideas of the launch is to feed long-haul passengers carried by Malaysia Airlines from Europe and Australia at Kuala Lumpur into the new Bangkok Airways route to Koh Samui.

“We expect half of the passengers travelling on Koh Samui-Kuala Lumpur to come from the transfer group, with the other half originating from the Malaysian capital,” said Varong Israsena na Ayudhya, Bangkok Airways’ regional sales director.

The carrier will offer a daily flight on the Koh Samui-Kuala Lumpur route using an Airbus 319 with 138 seats, all economy class, at an average fare of 8,500 baht.

The launch is part of the airline’s strategy to enable passengers, especially international ones, to fly directly to Koh Samui instead of through Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok.

Aside from more than 30 daily Bangkok Airways flights to and from Koh Samui, four other airlines serve the resort island.

SilkAir has five flights a week from Singapore; Firefly and Berjaya Air, both of Malaysia, have daily flights and two flights a week, respectively, from Kuala Lumpur; and Thai Airways International has two flights daily from Bangkok.
