Iceland’s Dohop will empower a new interlining agreement between Norse Atlantic Airways and Thai Vietjet, aimed at providing passengers with seamless journeys and a wider variety of connections.
The new partnership follows the launch of Norse Atlantic Airways’ service from Oslo to Bangkok. It will offer Norse customers access to many popular domestic destinations across Thailand, including Phuket, Krabi and Chiang Mai.
“This collaboration between Norse and Thai Vietjet is the perfect example of how alternative interlining can help airlines tap into new pools of demand and serve more customers,” said David Gunnarsson, CEO of Dohop, the virtual interlining technology company based in Reykjavík. “Both airlines will be well positioned to unlock new commercial opportunities together and offer even more choice to their travellers – all without the constraints of traditional interline or codeshare agreements.”
According to Zoe Osborne, Head of Commercial Partnerships, Norse Atlantic Airways, the airline is pleased with the expansion of its connectivity offering: “Combined with our previously announced airline partners, we will be able to provide even greater choice and convenience for passengers wishing to travel across the Atlantic.”
“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Norse,” added Pinyot Pibulsonggram, Head of Commercial, Thai Vietjet. “With the collaboration between both parties, Thai Vietjet will be able to provide our passengers with a more convenient connection to numerous destinations around the world via our Bangkok Suvarnabhumi base as we are expanding more flight connections to various destinations across the Asia-Pacific region.”
