Smile Your Way Across Asia With Nok Air
Nok Air is a top low-cost airline in Thailand operating mainly domestic services from Bangkok Don Mueang International Airport. The airline's motto is 'Smiling Across Asia', a simple concept that is grounded in the effort that the airline puts into understanding the needs of passengers and designing their flight experience around those needs.
Nok Air is a joint venture between public and private investors and was established in February 2004 under the name Sky Asia. The airline changed name to Nok Airlines in 2006 and is known popularly as Nok Air. At their core, the airline aims to create rapport with all passengers with their friendly culture and a high level of customer service that goes far beyond passenger expectations of a budget airline. As another goal, the airline wishes to offer everyone the freedom of flying as a travel option, regardless of their experience with commercial flying or financial means. Nok is the Thai word for 'bird' and symbolises the freedom and joy of a bird in flight.
Finally, the airline considers safety to be of the utmost importance, with all of its current aircraft newly leased from Thai Airways and operated by highly trained and experienced cockpit crews. Flying with Nok Air offers great value for money and a convenient means of transport for all passengers.
