At the time being, the airline staff is selling Pa Tong Go
2 Oct 2020
In the midst of the sluggish world of aviation, Thai Airways continues to look for ways to increase revenue. Now the staff of the Thai Airways is selling Pa Tong Go. Pa Tong Go is a Thai fried bread, also known as cakue in Indonesia.
This fried bread is sold as a set (3 pieces of fried bread and purple potato sauce) for THB 50 (IDR 24,000). This new idea received a positive response from the community, as evidenced by the long queues since 5AM. So far the sales turnover is THB 400,000 to THB 500,000 per day, or almost THB 10 million (around IDR 4.7 billion) per month.
This positive response made the airline plan to open more branches through the franchise concept to reach more customers.
Previously, Thai Catering also opened a restaurant selling aviation food. The airline is also looking for additional income by offering training to become a flight attendant for a day and learning to fly an airplane using a simulator.
