Thai Vietjet today announced the launch of a new virtual interline service developed in partnership with Icelandic technology provider Dohop.
The platform allows Thai Vietjet passengers to purchase airline tickets to airports across global destinations in one seamless transaction.
Dohop’s API-based technology will provide Thai Vietjet with a network of carriers such as Scoot via their hub in Bangkok (BKK) as well as other connecting airports, enabling passengers to book tickets to select destinations, including ancillary services such as checked baggage, in-flight services, and upgrades via a streamlined booking process.
Dohop automatically generates the best options and fares for Thai Vietjet customers based on their departure and arrival airports. Dohop services the connection in case of delays and disruptions, while Thai Vietjet retains customer ownership.
Currently, Thai Vietjet passengers can fly to various global destinations via Thai Vietjet’s Bangkok base through their connection with Scoot.
Further network expansion is planned, with Thai Vietjet planning to add additional carrier networks to the platform in the near future.
“We are excited to announce our collaboration with Dohop, which will provide international passengers with a more flexible choice of travel options across the Asia-Pacific region” said Mr. Pinyot Pibulsonggram, Director of Commercial, Thai Vietjet.
“With the collaboration between both parties, Thai Vietjet will be able to provide its passengers with a convenient connection to numerous destinations around the world via its Bangkok base, as we are expanding our flight connection with more carriers.”
“We are thrilled to be expanding our presence in South East Asia, and working with an innovative and forward-thinking airline such as Thai Vietjet further underlines the necessity for alternative interline solutions in global markets”, commented Sarah Hanan, Commercial Director at Dohop.
“As we head into the latter half of 2022, we look forward to further collaborating with Thai Vietjet, expanding their service, and providing new commercial opportunities.”
