For people on the way up

November 19, 2010

Brisbane based international carrier STRATEGIC AIRLINES today announced $299* fares to Thailand to celebrate its new Brisbane to Phuket flights commencing from 24 February, 2011.

The $299* one-way or $598* return “Thai-riffic!” launch fares are also inclusive of taxes and go on sale from next Wednesday 24 November on the airline’s web site and via participating travel agents, until sold out. The fares are available for travel from Brisbane to Thailand from 24 February, 2011.

The new flights will depart Brisbane on Thursdays and Sundays and will be operated by the airline’s dual-aisle 274 seat Airbus A330 aircraft.

Thailand is the latest destination in STRATEGIC AIRLINES’ expanding Queensland network.

“Queenslanders have thrown their support behind our new airline and our Brisbane-Bali services launched last year,” said STRATEGIC AIRLINES Head of Commercial Damien Vasta.

“So much so we are thrilled to add Thailand to our network complementing our new twice-weekly Brisbane to Townsville and Bali services starting next month,” he said. “Phuket has been long time favourite for Queensland holidaymakers wanting to get away to an attractive overseas destination. We are now making this great location easily accessible with direct services for the leisure market,” he added.

STRATEGIC AIRLINES, which launched in September 2009, is a two-class, full service carrier offering complimentary food and beverages and in-flight entertainment. The privately owned airline is a division of the Strategic Aviation Group formed in 2005.

Tickets will go on sale on November 24.

As the high season in Phuket approaches, the Airport of Thailand Authority (AOT) has introduced new incentives for airlines who begin new services to Phuket international airport.

The new scheme was launched on the 1st November and offers a ninety-five percent reduction on landing fees to airlines who introduce services on new routes to Phuket.

The scheme is open to all international airlines as long as they show a clean record and have no outstanding debts with AOT.

Air Asia is one Airline that will benefit from the new scheme following their recent announcement of new direct flights between Depansar, Bali and Phuket.
