The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) and Bangkok Airways have launched a new 'Fly me to Thailand' promotion, offering privileges, gift cards, discounts and many more special deals for travellers from Cambodia, Lao PDR., Myanmar and Vietnam (CLMV) as well as Malaysia, Singapore and India.

Mr. Klissada Ratanapruk, TAT Executive Director, ASEAN South Asia and South Pacific Region said, "Thailand is entering this year's high season from October onwards, so it is an opportune time to offer special privileges for tourists from our neighbouring ASEAN countries as well as from our long-standing, short-haul friend, India. The special offers from operators of tourism products and services across the country will also help enhance the awareness of the amazing variety of Thai travel experiences."

Under the 'Fly me to Thailand' promotion, every group booking of three travellers from the CLMV, Malaysia, Singapore and India on Bangkok Airways can get a Central Group, Thailand's largest retailer, gift card valued at 800 Baht. Travellers can also get discounts, special deals and privileges at 63 tourism products and services including hotels, resorts, spas, amusement parks, adventure parks, water parks, museums, restaurants, aesthetic clinics, and much more.

Mr. Klissada said, "The promotion is expected to attract an additional 25,000 travellers from the target markets to travel to Thailand between now and 31 December, 2019. This would help generate approximately 924 million Baht in revenue for the Thai economy."
