The contestants of the Miss Grand Thailand 2022 pageant strolled the corridors of Suvarnabhumi airport last weekend and landed an hour later in Khon Kaen for the start of this year’s beauty pageant.
“We are delighted to welcome and accompany the stunning Miss Grand Thailand 2022 entrants on a Thai Vietjet flight,” said a delighted airline commercial director Pinyot Pibulsonggram.
The budget airline, nicknamed “Bikini Airline” because of ads featuring scantily clad flight attendants, is sponsoring the swimsuit portion of this year’s pageant.
The budget airline also sponsors Miss Grand International, which carries beauty pageants from all over the world to promote various destinations in Thailand.
Among the passengers last year was Nguyen Thuc Thuy Tien, the reigning Miss Grand International queen from Vietnam. Other beauties who have graced Vietjet’s booth since 2016 include Miss Grand Thailand winners Kantida Lungjareon (Phrae), Nicharee Boonsiri (Sakon Nakhon), and Unchaya Petchamanee (Songkhla).
Miss Grand Thailand has been held annually since 2013 to select national beauties to participate in worldwide pageants – including her sister contest, Miss Grand International.
This year, the preliminary competition will be held in Khon Kaen, while the grand finale of the coronation night will be held on April 30 in Bangkok.
