Mr Udorn Olsson has revealed that big plans are about to be announced for the marketing and promotion of direct flights “TO HUA HIN AIRPORT FROM THAILAND AND THE WORLD.”
Mr Olsson was an unsuccessful candidate for the position of Hua Hin Mayor in last week’s municipal elections and has been an advisor to the Deputy Minister of Transport. He in now named as Chairman of the Phoenix Group (Thailand).
A more definitive announcement will soon be made at an official launching of planned changes to “push Hua Hin Airport to become a full international airport”.
Apart from Mr Olsson, the launching will be attended by Dr Punlop Singhasanee, the Governor of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province, Apisit Ubolkomut, Airport Director and Mr John Laroche the CEO of Phoenix Aviation International (Hong Kong).
Mr Olsson says the launch will be about a private sector partnership as a pilot project to maximise the marketing and management potential of the airport. This means adding international flights to Hua Hin Airport with direct flights from many Asian countries including India and Japan.
After an official invitation, the launch will be attended by the Royal Coast Review; expect more information next week!
