In a departure from initial plans which focused on domestic routes via Bangkok, the carrier will place an emphasis on regional destinations such as India, China and other SE Asian countries within three to four hours flying time.
One driving factor looks to be on the heels of an larger shareholding in Nok Air which is firmly entrenched in a Thailand network of flights.
