The Bangkok Airways (IATA code: PG) was launched in 1968 under the name Sahakol Air before it changed its name in 1986. The Bangkok Airways headquarters is in Bangkok, Thailand, with 35 aircraft operating 12 national and 15 intercontinental services. Skytrax, the carrier, has repeatedly placed Bangkok Airways at the top of the rankings and is currently rated four stars.
Bangkok Airways was awarded Best Regional Airways in the World in 2016 and Best Regional Airways in Asia in 2016 by the latest Skytrax citation. Bangkok Airways started its tagline, Asia's Business Airlines, on its thirty-sixth anniversary in 2004: An exclusive service for exotic gemstones, together with the launch of the new label drive. Bangkok Airways' primary goal was to become a trusted and reliable carrier with the contemporary and fashionable nature of a fashion store.
Bangkok Airways wants to provide not only the best personal services for travellers but also the best personalised services for exclusive and culture travel. You can see this in every Bangkok Airways airplane, which is tailor-made in a contemporary and recognisable way.
Bangkok Airways' flagship merchandising initiative underlines and extends its role as one of the leading privately owned airlines in the Kingdom of Thailand. Bangkok Airways offers a wide range of amenities in all classes of shop facilities, shop aerodromes, appetising in-flight catering, a new aircraft pool and passenger-friendliness.
In Bangkok Airways there are three privately-owned airfields with the qualities of three different provinces: Bangkok Airways' flagship architecture is built on the boutique-airport approach of which it is always proud. Bangkok Airways uses 4C as a key value for communications, coordination, cooperation and contribution. Communications include Bangkok Airways' obligation to improve its relationships with its clients and to give them the best possible comprehension through a seamless sharing of information and suggestions.
Bangkok Airways has always been committed to security, so the company constantly carries out a service cheque for all its fleet of airplanes that decorate the world. In February 2017 Bangkok Airways was awarded the Air Operation Certificate (AOC) by the Directorate General of the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand.
It was awarded in recognition of the airline's dedication to the passenger, partner and employee protection. In order to obtain the certification, Bangkok Airways had to complete five levels of inspections and measurements as well as verification and testing by the Thai Civil Aviation Authority.
Bangkok Airways is the first airline in Thailand to be awarded the new certification for aviation service. With FlyerBonus, Bangkok Airways is offering a loyalty programme with specific campaigns where travellers can earn points for certain airline travel and cash in for reward travel and accommodation.
In order to participate in this programme, the only requirement is that travellers must be registered on-line on Bangkok Airways' website. Upon registration, travellers will receive an automatic 10 kg free luggage allowance and a few miles points that can be used. A further Bangkok Airways prerogative is the Blue Ribbon Club.
Registered travellers will benefit from an additional 10 kg free luggage and the use of an additional 10 kg free area. Blue Ribbon is not only distinguished from other shop lunges by its flamboyant designs with suspended crystals and a cosier ambience, but also by its service.
The Blue Ribbon Club customers are spoiled during the journey by roomy and convenient chairs and greater leg room so that they can work with effortlessness or just unwind. There are two major categories of flights to Bangkok Airways: Economy- and Business Class, each with different benefits. Economy Class offers the passenger comfy, reclining chairs, while in Business Class the empty centre chair can be used as a desk or armchair chair.
Adults and children in Economy Class are eligible for a free luggage allowance of 20 kg, small children are eligible for a free luggage allowance of 10 kg. Adults and children in Business Class, on the other side, receive up to 30 kg free luggage, small children up to 10 kg.
The Bangkok Airways also allows travellers to take along extra luggage, including sporting gear or surfboards, provided they fully comply with the rules.

These rules can be found on the Bangkok Airways website.
