On February 19, 2023, low-cost airline Nok Air will begin operating direct flights between Hyderabad, India, and Bangkok, Thailand.

Four times a week, a cutting-edge Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 189 Economy Class seats will fly nonstop between Rajiv Gandhi International Airport and Don Mueang International Airport.

On Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays at 00.45 local time, flight DD959 will depart from Hyderabad and arrive in Bangkok at 6.05 local time.

On Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays at 9.30 p.m., Bangkok will be the departure point for flight DD958, which will arrive in Hyderabad at 11.45 p.m.

On Nok Air's website, round-trip tickets between Bangkok and Hyderabad now cost 8,980 Thai Baht. The trip lasts three hours and fifty minutes.

The route should increase Indian travel to Thailand. Nearly a million people reside in Hyderabad, the capital and biggest city of the Indian state of Telangana. They can now travel directly to Bangkok and quickly connect to 20 other places in Thailand, including Phuket, Chiang Mai, and Krabi.

Hyderabad is the sole Indian destination currently served by Nok Air. CEO Wutthiphum Jurangkool does, however, have plans to increase the country's route network this year:

"With direct flights from Hyderabad beginning on February 19, 2023, Nok Air is thrilled to welcome travellers from that city. Nok is the top Thai carrier because it offers clients real value for their money, dependability, convenience, and care. India is Thailand's significant and longtime friend. This year, we want to improve our connection to additional Indian cities. The new Nok Air route will provide the only service connecting Don Mueang Airport and Hyderabad."

Thai Airways is the only other company that offers direct flights between Bangkok and Hyderabad (BKK) from Suvarnabhumi Airport.

In November, Nok Air opened the "Nok Air Lounge" at Don Mueang Airport. Nok Max ticket holders and Nok Smile Plus subscribers can use the lounge.
