Mr. Santisuk, who holds a proficient background in the field of medicine, serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Thai AirAsia.
He highlighted the significance of the Indian tourist market as a crucial strategic focus for Thailand.
According to data provided by the TAT, Thailand welcomed over 8.85 million tourists from India during the initial seven months of the year (January-July 2566). Further constituting around 6% of the overall foreign tourist influx.
This positioned India as the fourth-largest source of visitors. The anticipation is that this new route will be exceptionally well-received, particularly for domestic connections within Thailand, which holds substantial popularity among Indian travelers.
Further, Leveraging AirAsia’s robust and frequent flight network further reinforces this prospect.
Emphasizing the city of Ahmedabad, Mr. Santisuk emphasized its merit in embracing fresh perspectives. As India’s inaugural World Heritage Site, Ahmedabad boasts a captivating blend of architectural splendor, culture, lifestyle, nature, and rich history, being the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi.
It aligns perfectly with the evolving preferences of contemporary travelers seeking both exploration and meaningful experiences. “Ahmedabad holds a distinct appeal. Catering to the requirements of modern travelers who seek enriching journeys,” Mr. Santisuk noted.
