InterContinental Hua Hin Launches Private Plane Service to Hua Hin
LANDMARK RESORT LAUNCHES PRIVATE PLANE SERVICE TO HUA HIN
HUA HIN, THAILAND – The luxurious InterContinental Hua Hin Resort has become the first hotel in Hua Hin to launch its own private air service to shuttle guests from Bangkok to the beachside city.

The exclusive service departs from either Suvarnabhumi International Airport or Don Muaeng Airport direct to Hua Hin before a resort limousine whisks guests away for the ten-minute drive for check in.
The InterContinental Hua Hin Resort has quickly established new benchmarks for luxury in the historical town on the shores of the Gulf of Siam and General Manager, Pattama Yoshimura, said the eight-seat Cessna Grand Caravan would raise the bar in Thailand towards opulent, yet convenient, services.
The plane flies in InterContinental livery and has a full-time crew on permanent standby to make the 35-minute flight between Bangkok and Hua Hin at a moment's notice.
"Right from the conceptualisation stage of this resort, we have always strived to set new benchmarks in services we can offer to guests and we think that a private plane service is very hard to beat," Ms Yoshimura said.
"It is something we are quite proud of."
Ms Yoshimura added the service had been popular since its recent launch and the resort was also combining accommodation and flight packages, which are in demand.
"When we launched this exclusive service, we were not quite sure how it would be received, but it has been in demand from discerning guests who prefer the privacy of a quick transfer to Hua Hin from Bangkok," Ms Yoshimura added.
"We have had a range of customers from Bangkok residents to long-haul visitors who step straight of their flight from Europe, Australia or America, proceed through immigration and then get straight on a flight to Hua Hin.
"Its something we believe distinguishes us from other resorts and is another step to putting Hua Hin on the destination wish list of travellers throughout the world."
Flights can be either one-way or return on the Cessna and packages combining the shuttle service and accommodation are available from the InterContinental Hua Hin Resort.
