Two new scheduled flights announced by Kan Air
Kan Air, who are currently building Koh Phangan Airport, have recently added two new services to its growing list of scheduled flights. It is a clear statement of intent by the company that they wish to become a major player in the lucrative internal flight market in Thailand.
The new routes are both from Chiang Mai where the airline is based. One service is to Ubon Ratchathani in Northeast Thailand. This service will be on Friday and Sunday. Flights will leave Chiang Mai at 1350 and arrive at 1520. The reverse leg will leave at 1600 and arrive at 1730.
The other route is between Chiang Mai and Hua Hin in Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. Flights are also on Friday and Sunday. The flight to Hua Hin departs at 0900 and arrives at 1030. The return flight leaves at 1100 and arrives at 1230.
Both routes will be served by the company’s Hawker Beechcraft Premier 1 jet. It can carry 6 passengers. Kan Air announced fares will start at 2,900 Thai Baht inclusive of all taxes for a one-way fare to either Ubon Ratchathani or Hua Hin. Flights will start on August 15th, 2014.
The two new scheduled flights will join existing flights from Chiang Mai to Pai, Mae Hong Son, Nan, Phitsanulok and Khon Kaen.
It is hoped that these new routes prove lucrative for Kan Air and that they will give the company the financial boost needed to complete Koh Phangan Airport. The airport is the biggest aviation project the company has so far entered into.
