Jet Asia announces its appointment of CITS Air Service Co., Ltd. as its General Sales Agent in China effective immediately. CITS Air Service, a subsidiary of China International Travel Service Co., Ltd, China’s largest integrated travel network, will take responsibility of local commercial activities including sales, marketing and reservations.

The strategic alliance is aimed at capturing the surge in passenger traffic to Thailand by offering travelers in secondary cities access to non-stop flights to Thailand’s top destinations.

“For the first time, travelers will have a more convenient option of flying between Thailand and the secondary cities we service in China. This collaboration is the first milestone in our plan to expand service to the fast growing Chinese market,” said Captain John Ross, Jet Asia’s VP of Operations.

Since 2009, Chinese traffic into Thailand has grown from 770,500 passengers to an estimated 2.2 Million in 2012. As aresult of the three-year traffic growth of nearly 150%, a large part of JetAsia’s 2013 Route Expansion Plan is aimed at the development of Chinese routes.
