Queensland and Thailand are reconnecting


Share - Facebook - X.com
One of the final missing pieces of the post-pandemic puzzle will fall into place with Jetstar set to reconnect Queensland and Thailand with direct services between Bangkok (BKK) and Brisbane (BNE).

Jetstar will fly the route 3 times per week from 13 December using a 787 Dreamliner. It will be the only non-stop service with a flight duration of just over eight hours, approximately half the current travel time via indirect routes.

The new service is forecast to bring in more than 190,000 additional inbound seats to Queensland over three-years, worth $116 million in Overnight Visitor Expenditure and up to 630 jobs.

The new route is part of a major expansion of Jetstar’s Brisbane operations following a landmark partnership with Brisbane Airport in 2023. The agreement has unlocked half a million new low fares seats a year with direct flights taking off from Brisbane to Tokyo (Narita), Osaka (Kansai), Seoul (Incheon) and Auckland.

The new service will be the first time that Queensland has had a direct connection with Thailand since Thai Airways ceased flights on 29 March 2020 due to the pandemic.
