Bangkok Airways Flights

Bangkok Airways is a regional airline offering flights throughout Thailand. They also offer flights to Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Laos, Malaysia, the Maldives, Myanmar, Singapore and Vietnam. They pride themselves on service and their slogan, "Asia's boutique airline", reaffirms this. Their base is Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, with secondary bases in Phuket and Chiang Mai. They fly to a total of 28 destinations with 36 aircraft. They're not a member of any airline alliances, but do have their own frequent flyer program "Flyer Bonus".

Bangkok Airways don't currently operate any long-haul routes, so you're unlikely to find flights from Ireland. If you're planning a trip to Southeast Asia, they're certainly one to look out for.
