Centara Bolsters Airline Partnership Network 

partnership signing

Thailand's leading hotel operator, Centara Hotels & Resorts, has partnered with Thai Vietjet, expanding its growing airline partnership network, which also includes Thai Airways and Singapore Airlines.

Thailand has broadly eased its COVID entry rules for travellers arriving from abroad. Foreign nationals are now only required to provide their passports, vaccination details and a USD 10,000 health insurance policy to apply for the Thailand Pass, usually issued within 24 hours. Fully vaccinated travellers are free to start discovering Thailand on arrival. Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated travellers must supply proof of a negative RT-PCR or ATK test issued within 72 hours before departure.

"As more passengers return to the air, we are excited to partner with Thai Vietjet to welcome travellers back to Centara, The Place to Be," said Tom Thrussell, Vice President – Brand, Marketing & Digital of Centara Hotels & Resorts. "With six distinct brands ranging from luxury beachfront retreats to family resorts and affordable lifestyle hotels, we can meet and exceed the needs of travellers of every age and lifestyle. We are delighted to offer exciting benefits to Thai Vietjet's customers through their communications network."

The group's new marketing partnership offers Thai Vietjet passengers a great deal, with an exclusive 19 percent off the lowest publically available online rates at all participating Centara properties. Travellers can choose from 13 beach and urban destinations across Thailand.

Guests can also enjoy a tropical getaway to an overwater villa in the Maldives or take a family holiday at a themed resort with water parks, and playgrounds park in Dubai or southern Vietnam. Travellers also have a choice of participating hotels in Qatar, Oman, and Sri Lanka.

"With the uplifting of travel restrictions in many countries, Thai Vietjet is more than ready to welcome our passengers back to the skies, with the latest establishment of a partnership with Centara, offering extra benefits and special deals exclusively for Thai Vietjet's passengers to travel and discover the ultimate beauty of various destinations in the region," said Pinyot Pibulsonggram, Director of Commercial of Thai Vietjet.

Under the Centara x Thai Vietjet promotion, members of Centara's loyalty programme, CentaraThe1, will receive over a 19 percent discount. This is lower than any publicly available rate and exclusive to customers of Thai Vietjet. Non-members can sign up for free in less than a minute and immediately start taking advantage of all the benefits and earning points.
