A Thai Virgin?

Virgin Group founder and CEO, the charismatic Richard Branson, announced to Thai media to be ready to move into the airline’s field in Thailand. ” I will fly my airline to Thailand soon,” he said in Bangkok yesterday while touring his Virgin radio studio in Bangkok.

Virgin revolutionized 30 years ago the air transport market in Europe with the launch of a brand new long haul carrier, Virgin Atlantic. The carrier links today London Heathrow to Delhi, Hong Kong and Shanghai but withdrew from Tokyo Narita and Mumbai in January of this year. 

The Group has also a subsidiary in Australia. Virgin Australia has today a 35% market share in Australia’s aviation market.
