Jet Asia Airways' newly focus on outbound travelers has shown positive results due to the increase in demand and the low prices offered. 500 roundtrip promotional tickets were offered at 7,555THB ($243USD) to jumpstart the flights. All the seats for November were sold out before the first flight operated.
