THAI Smile Airways moves ahead with its expansion of international destinations particularly China with the ‘Explore Your Smile, Explore Thai Taste’ roadshow to launch its new route of Bangkok-Chongqing once a day and Bangkok-Changsha twice a day. The roadshow aims to attract travel agencies and members of the press in Chongqing and Changsha and to introduce THAI Smile to the Chinese population as a regional full service airline for discerning travelers who wish for a global full-scale service flight experience.
For this roadshow, THAI Smile had prepared a special “Thai Taste Experience” as part of its strategy to respond to the needs of Chinese travelers. This encompassed four key aspects of Thailand, namely ‘Taste the Adventure’ which featured exotic destinations that cannot be found elsewhere, ‘Taste the Flavors’ which featured delectable Thai cuisine, ‘Taste the Warmth’ which featured the warm welcome of Chinese-speaking Thais, and ‘Taste the Excitement’ which featured exclusive shopping deals. There was also a demonstration of the making of famous Thai dishes like somtum, kratongthong, pad thai, mango with sticky rice, and taro and potato in coconut milk, as well as a performance to show the close Thai-Chinese relations by the THAI Smile crew.
Acting CEO of THAI Smile Airways Company Limited Captain Woranate Lahprabang gave the opening remarks while Khun Runchuan Thongruj, East Asia Director of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), presided over the opening event. The event saw a number of distinguished guests including Chongqing Tourism Administration Deputy Director Mr. Wang Tin Gao, People’s Republic of China Consul-General to Khon Kaen Mr. Li Minggang, THAI Smile Airways Director Khun Pipat Kanthong, National Reform Steering Assembly member General Wuthinan Leelayudth, THAI Smile Airways Chief Financial Officer Khun Charita Leelayudth, THAI Smile Airways Advisor Dr. Worachart Petchnantawong, THAI Smile Airways Chief Commercial Officer Dr. Ketchayong Sakaoratananont, THAI Smile Airways Deputy Chief Commercial Officer Khun Netnapang Thirawas, and N.C.C.
