The Girls From Thai Smile Air

Khon Kaen airport is about 25 minutes outside of town and neighbouring provinces can be reached in two hours. The airport is famous for it’s close proximity to the golf course.

The girls from Nok air performed their tribute to Britney Spears earlier this year, the ‘starlet’ was in the capital for a couple of concerts. We’re not sure if they do this on all flights although it would certainly spice up the safety information.
