Thai Vietjet a launched a virtual interline service developed in partnership with Icelandic technology provider Dohop.
The platform allows Thai Vietjet passengers to purchase airline tickets to airports not linked by formal airline networks across global destinations in one transaction.
Dohop’s API technology will provide Thai Vietjet with a network of carriers such as Scoot via their hub in Bangkok as well as other connecting airports, enabling passengers to book tickets to select destinations, including ancillary services such as checked baggage, in-flight services, and upgrades via a streamlined booking process.
The platform automatically generates the best options and fares for Thai Vietjet customers based on their departure and arrival airports. Dohop services the connection in case of delays and disruptions, while Thai Vietjet deals with the customer.
Currently, Thai Vietjet passengers can fly to various global destinations through their a connection with Scoot at Bangkok. Further network expansion is planned, with Thai Vietjet planning to add additional carrier networks to the platform in the near future.

“With the collaboration between both parties, Thai Vietjet will be able to provide its passengers with a convenient connection to numerous destinations around the world via its Bangkok base, as we are expanding our flight connection with more carriers.”
Sarah Hanan, commercial director at Dohop, added: “We are thrilled to be expanding our presence in South East Asia, and working with an innovative and forward-thinking airline such as Thai Vietjet further underlines the necessity for alternative interline solutions in global markets.
