A “new force” in Asia’s airline industry
Asia Atlantic Airlines, a new regional carrier, was launched on August 7 at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport. A joint venture between Japanese travel giant H.I.S Group and prominent Thai hotelier, the Baiyoke Group, the airline will commence operations in August with two Boeing aircraft to Tokyo and Osaka. The airline will operate out of two hubs: Bangkok Suvarnabhumi and Tokyo Narita International Airport. Asia Atlantic Airline, so called because of its ambition to develop routes beyond Asia, plans to expand its network in the next 12-24 months to China, South Korea, Guam and Hawaii, as further aircraft are delivered.
According to one report, the airline aims to become “a dynamic new force in the region’s airline industry led by a passionate vision and a deep commitment to pan-Asian hospitality” with plans to focus strongly on social media to raise awareness of the airline in the region primarily through its facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/AsiaAtlanticAirlines
