22 August 2023
- Technology provider Dohop will empower Norse Atlantic Airways and Thai Vietjet to offer connected journeys to travellers through alternative interlining.
- With Dohop’s API-based solution, Norse customers flying to Bangkok can now access Thai Vietjet’s wide range of domestic destinations across Thailand, through a unified booking process.
- New collaboration enables Norse and Thai Vietjet to tap into new demand, expand their networks and increase revenue, without the constraints of traditional interline or codeshare agreements.
Dohop, the European market leader for alternative interline solutions, has today announced it will now enable Norse Atlantic Airways and Thai Vietjet to offer seamless and connected journeys to their travellers.
The move follows the launch of Norse’s twice-weekly service to Bangkok from Oslo, and will enable Norse customers to simply and conveniently connect to a wide range of popular domestic destinations across Thailand, including Phuket, Krabi, and Chiang Mai.
The new partnership between Norse Atlantic Airways and Thai Vietjet relies on Dohop’s technology, which automatically generates the best flight options and fares for customers through a unified booking process, based on their departure and arrival airports.
Dohop manages the connection and offers prompt assistance in the event of flight cancellations or delays, ensuring travellers reach their desired destinations as quickly and conveniently as possible.
We are very pleased to further expand our connectivity offering to our passengers. Combined with our previously announced airline partners we will be able to provide even greater choice and convenience for passengers wishing to travel across the Atlantic.
