Low-cost carrier (LCC) passenger traffic through Thailand surged by nearly 30% in the first half of this year, underlining the proliferation of budget air travel that has been eroding the market share of full-service airlines. 

No-frills airlines carried 28.65% more passengers to record 13.58 million, representing 31.08% of all passenger traffic through the kingdom's six main airports including Suvarnabhumi.

LCC aircraft movements also rose by 19.61% in the first half, accounting for 33.08% of the take-offs and landings made through airports operated by the Airports of Thailand Plc (AoT).
