Bangkok, 28th November 2022 – Thai express cargo airline K-Mile Asia has launched a new service serving Dhaka Airport (DAC), Bangladesh, from its home base at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK).
The new service upgrades and expands K-Mile’s network, with a B737-800BCF next-generation aircraft replacing a B737-400 Classic to serve Hong Kong and Dhaka. The link to Bangladesh will benefit from five flights a week operated by K-Mile.
K-Mile has added two B737-800BCF aircraft to its fleet, increasing capacity and range while simultaneously reducing carbon emissions. The aircraft is 15% more fuel efficient than the earlier B737-400s and can transport a payload of up to 23 tons with a range of up to 3,700km.
Pansith Sasunee, K-Mile’s Managing Director, said, “We are delighted to continue to grow K-Mile’s cargo network with the aircraft up gauge to Hong Kong in addition to this new route serving Thailand and Bangladesh. Our new aircraft expand our service offering, and we will continue to respond to customer requirements to develop a quality and reliable ASEAN cargo network”.
K-Mile was established in 2004 and began operations in 2006, providing both scheduled and charter cargo flights. In addition to its scheduled operations, the airline continues to offer charter flights across its network, serving Thailand, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and Singapore.
