Why THAI launched THAI Smile, although THAI has Nok Air as its subsidiary?
THAI´s decision to launch the new carrier is to enable THAI to offer a more comprehensive service encompassing a broader market while able to better control its operating cost and optimizing aircraft use for appropriate markets. THAI currently holds a 49% shareholding in Nok Air and Nok operates out of the old airport - Don Mueang and serves purely domestic destinations. Thai Smile, on the other hand, will be a light premium product - passengers are able to access THAI´s passenger lounges, accumulate points, book seats and have free baggage weight with base of operations being at Suvarnabhumi Airport. The new airline will serve both regional and key domestic destinations with a lower cost structure than that of THAI.
