THAI Lion Air has appointed Airline Rep Services, the GSA division of CVFR Travel Group, as its new General Sales Agent (GSA) for Australia and New Zealand.
The Bangkok-based low-cost carrier is an associate company of Indonesia’s Lion Air Group, and operates from Don Mueang International Airport.
The carrier also plans to serve domestic and international destinations from other cities in Thailand, with the company’s Chairman, Captain Darsito Hendroseputro, saying “hopefully our market expansion can escalate new customers inbound and outbound from/to Thailand and Australia & New Zealand”.
Airline Rep Services has established a call centre specially for the carrier’s customers and the travel trade, with GDS bookings available under Thai Lion Air’s SL code and tickets able to be issued via BSP.
CVFR Travel Group MD Ram Chhabra said he was thrilled at the GSA deal, particularly in the current environment.
“This appointment is truly a proud one for the company…Thailand has always been a preferred tourism destination for Australians and I am sure post-COVID this will continue to be the case,” he said.
