Bangkok Airways is zeroing out its commission for travel agents, according to a letter to its travel partners forwarded to Travel Agent

In the letter the Thailand-based airline wrote that, effective April 1, all of the airline’s tickets will be adjusted to zero percent commission. The new level will apply to all commissionable fares on Bangkok Airways operated and marketed flights, on both domestic routes within Thailand and international routes. 

Bangkok Airways, which was founded in 1968 as Sahakol Air and rebranded in 1986, is based out of Suvarnabhumi International Airport, as well as three privately owned airports: Samui Airport, Sukhothai Airport and Trat Airport. The airline flies to 12 domestic destinations within Thailand, as well as 18 international destinations, such as Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Hong Kong and the Maldives
