|Founded by Dr. Piya BhiromBhakdi: the President of Boonrawd
Brewery Co., Ltd., PB Air was formed to fulfill and on request
air transport to the executives of the brewery. Being the largest
brewery in Thailand, all domestic and neighboring countries
branches must be linked whenever required. The mission for PB
Air was to provide safe, fast, and private flight all over the
region. After the ultimate convenience became well-known,PB
Air wanted to extend the niche service to the public by apply
for the license to operate the flight commercially.
Department of Aviation, Ministry of Transport granted Charter
/ Non-schedule license to PB Air in November 1995. With the
objective to help improve the tourist industry, which is major
source of income of Thailand, PB Air started charter service
as an alternate way of travel. After the delivery of the state-of-the-art
bigger aircraft, the green light was given to upgrade the license
as scheduled / programmed charter. The first destination was
Chumphon, the tropical resort on the East coast of Southern
Thailand. As tourism is the important industry in Southeast
Asia, many projects are cooperated between countries. PB Air
was designated by the Thai government to participate in the
Indonesia Malaysia Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) project.
This action has placed PBAir in the new hub of exotic tropical
destinations. With the remarkable record and experiences gained
through years of happy landings, PB Air was announced the newest
scheduled air carrier of Thailand in January 1999.
Operating the all-jet aircraft and having the route network
linking secondary point-to-point cities around the region, PB
Air is now ready to take-off to the new era and join the deregulated
sky of Thailand, especially with the forming of Alliance with
Thai Airways International and Air Andaman.
