AWAS has delivered a Boeing 737-400 to Thai low-fare airline Nok Air, headquartered in Bangkok, for use on the carrier’s domestic routes.
“We already have six 737-400s and are continuing to expand our fleet through cautious and targeted growth in areas where we know we can continue to be profitable. The economics of the 737-400 in the current market makes it the obvious choice for a low-cost, consumer centric business like ours,” explained Patee Sarasin, CEO of Nok Air. “This is the first time we have worked with AWAS and we have been satisfied on many levels with their understanding of our market and their ability to tailor a solution to our needs.”
Ray Sisson, president & CEO of AWAS, welcomed Nok Air to the growing number of AWAS customers in the Asia-Pacific region. “This region is a key focus for AWAS, our Asia-Pacific team brings a wealth of experience and local knowledge to our customers and it is this insight that keeps our customers coming back.”
