A look at ‘kanairlines’ YouTube Channel
Kan Air has not only their own website at www.kanairlines.com where you can reserve tickets on their scheduled flights around Changmai but they also have a YouTube channel.
There are only 5 videos currently on the channel (as of 4 Feb, 2013). The last video was uploaded in March 2012. The videos consist of media snippets and promo videos. The extent of the Kan Air online presence and visibility reflects the size of the company.
To make a comparison: Bangkok Air YouTube Channel has 501 subscribers and its 19 videos have been watched 795,596 times. Kan Air YouTube Channel has 12 subscribers and its 5 videos have been viewed 5,596 times.
There is no official footage of Koh Phangan airport yet. However that is soon to change. It will be interesting to see how well the change in Kan Air’s business will be reflected in their online output.
The video below starts with a bit of cheesy dance music that sounds like the Chemical Brothers but soon changes into flying muzak. You also get a clear idea of the size of plane that will be used in Koh Phangan. In the video it is a Cessna C208B Grand Caravan that holds 14 people. For Koh Phangan they are going to use similar sized planes but turbo prop style where the wing is lower on the craft.
The slogan for Kan Air is ‘Flying with Nature’ and the logo is a bird flying west. This features in the videos of Kan Air.
Finally, the take off section on the video shows the beauty to be seen when taking off from a tropical location. An ocean of lush colors receding as the plane ascends into blue skies.
