Bangkok Airways

Bangkok Airways was established in 1968 under a different name. However, the airline didn’t begin scheduled flight operations until 1986, which was when the name was changed to Bangkok Airways. The flight network includes routes throughout Southeast Asia, plus other routes in Asia that are served under codeshare agreements with other airlines. Their fleet currently consists of 9 Airbus 320s, 16 Airbus 319s, 2 ATR 72-500s and 13 ATR72-600s. Since some of the aircraft are smaller, there are different cabin baggage size allowances for Bangkok Airways based on which type of aircraft your flight is on.
