Thai Vietjet has inaugurated its maiden flight VZ330 from the capital city of Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi Airport) to Nakhon Si Thammarat, an administrative center of southern Thailand and one of the most ancient cities of the country.
The maiden flight took off with guests of honor aboard, including Siripat Phatthakun, Governor of Nakhon Si Thammarat, and safely landed, the airline said in a press release on Friday.
The plane was welcomed with a water salute while Nakhon Si Thammarat Airport operators and the Tourism Authority of Thailand Nakhon Si Thammarat Office gave flowers to the passengers on board the flight.
Celebrating the inaugural flight, Thai Vietjet delivered an enjoyable experience with an in-flight performance by Thai singer GunGun, along with corporate souvenirs gifted to all passengers.
