From June 11, British Airways’ customers will be able to fly to the popular Thai holiday hotspots of Phuket, Koh Samui and Chiang Mai thanks to a new agreement between the airline and Bangkok Airways.
The codeshare arrangement between the two airlines means that British Airways’ customers will be able to book flights, via Bangkok, to these tourist destinations in one seamless transaction on ba.com. There will also be a codeshare service with Bangkok Airways from Singapore to Koh Samui.

BA flies daily to Bangkok and twice daily to Singapore. The Bangkok service will be moving from Heathrow Terminal 3 to Terminal 5 from October.

Steve Ronald, head of alliances, said: “The beautiful beaches of Thailand will be more accessible to European tourists now that we have teamed up with Bangkok Airways. The move of our Bangkok service to Heathrow’s Terminal 5 will also serve to streamline connections between Europe and the Far East.”
