Centara Hotels & Resorts has announced a partnership with budget airline Thai Vietjet as Thailand relaxes entry rules for overseas visitors.

The pact bolsters Centara's growing airline partnership network, which includes Thai Airways and Singapore Airlines.

"As more passengers return to the air, we are excited to partner with Thai Vietjet to welcome travellers back to Centara, 'The Place to Be'," said Tom Thrussell, vice-president of brand, marketing and digital at Centara.

"With six distinct brands ranging from luxury beachfront retreats to family resorts and affordable lifestyle hotels, we are able to meet and exceed the needs of travellers of every age and lifestyle, and we are delighted to offer exciting benefits to Thai Vietjet's customers through their communications network."

The new marketing partnership offers Thai Vietjet passengers a new way to travel with an exclusive 19% off the lowest publicly available online rates at all participating Centara hotels and resorts when logged in as a CentaraThe1 member. This is lower than any publicly available rate and is exclusive to Thai Vietjet customers.

Travellers have a choice of 13 beach and urban destinations across Thailand: Phuket, Krabi, Koh Samui, Hua Hin, Pattaya, Trat, Koh Chang, Rayong, Chiang Mai, Mae Sot, Udon Thani, Hat Yai and Bangkok.

"With the [lifting] of travel restrictions in many countries, Thai Vietjet is more than ready to welcome our passengers back to the skies, with the latest partnership with Centara offering extra benefits and special deals exclusively for Thai Vietjet's passengers to travel and discover the ultimate beauty of various destinations in the region," said Pinyot Pibulsonggram, director of commercial at Thai Vietjet.

Guests can also enjoy a tropical escape to an overwater villa in the Maldives or take a family holiday at a themed resort with water parks and playgrounds in Dubai or southern Vietnam. Travellers also have a choice of participating hotels in Qatar, Oman and Sri Lanka.
